As a dedicated provider and advocate of continuing education, he achieved his Fellowship in the Academy of Dentistry which requires 500 hours of post-dental school advanced study as well as comprehensive examination. He brings with him a full understanding of the latest techniques dentistry has to offer. Aside from dentistry, he enjoys spending time with his family, reading books, cheering for his favorite sports teams (Penn State and Pittsburgh Steelers), and painting/drawing.
