From a young age, I was taught that if I'm not going to be the best at something, don’t do it! I live by the mantra that every task, big or small, should be done to the best of my ability. Whether I am cleaning dishes, cutting the lawn, or straightening teeth, I strive to do every task, big or small, with the same level of commitment. I am beyond excited to practice as an orthodontist in your community and to treat you all as my family.
Education doesn’t end after school, but boy have I done a lot of it! I am a very proud graduate of Grove City College where I played varsity soccer and completed a Bachelor’s degree in Molecular Biology. I completed my Doctorate of Dental Medicine at University of Pittsburgh and subsequently completed my orthodontic training there as well.
Born and raised in Philadelphia, I am the oldest of four siblings. My father, an immigrant from the Middle East worked as a fare box technician for much of his life while my mother had the daunting task of raising us kids! In 2016, I was lucky enough to marry my college sweetheart and best friend, Evelyn. Still in graduate school, Evelyn hopes to one day work with children full time and be a mother herself! My family is the most important thing in my life and the reason I get up in the morning.
Hobbies and Interests
No matter the day, you'll likely find me playing or watching soccer. As a kid, I couldn't get enough and as an adult, I still try to play at least twice a week. My other interests include staying in shape, reading about financial planning, and cooking for our friends and family. My wife and I are also involved with our church throughout the week and on the weekends.
