Dental Health & Image Center My goal over the 15 years I have been practicing in Rumson and Fair Haven has been to create a dental practice of the highest caliber which retains the charm and friendliness of a small town practice. I believe the Dental Health & Image Center has achieved this goal. Our dental team is committed to provide an office where patients receive excellent comprehensive dental care via state-of-the-art techniques and where the doctor and staff know patients by name and treat them as individuals.
Your Dental Health is the primary focus of our office. Now, more than ever, the importance of maintaining a healthy foundation for your smile is understood. Research has shown that poor oral health is linked to several systemic conditions, including cardiovascular disease and stroke. As your dental team, our primary aim is to help you achieve and maintain a healthy mouth and body. After receiving my Dental Degree from The University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill School of Dentistry, I have continued my education with many of the top educators in the field of dentistry. I have completed the course series at the renowned Dawson Center for the Advancement of Dentistry and the Seattle Institute of Advanced Dental Education which teach a comprehensive approach to dental treatment and oral health.
Dental Image-Looking and Feeling Healthy. Today, being healthy has become synonymous with looking healthy and self-image. Your smile is the first thing people notice when meeting you . . . and even small improvements in your smile can have dramatic effects on your appearance. Our goal is not simply to make pretty teeth, but rather to enhance your overall image with a smile that looks and feels natural and comfortable. In addition to being a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, I have trained at the Center for Esthetic Excellence where I have received advanced education in the field of cosmetic dentistry from the top educators in the field. An important part of cosmetic and restorative dentistry is working with a great lab. I have had the pleasure of working with da Vinci Dental Studios for nearly 15 years. In 2005 I was named one of their Extreme Team dentists.
State-of-the-Art Techniques Dental Implants are one of the fastest growing areas in dentistry and with good reason-dental implants are the ONLY way to replace teeth without compromising the health of the surrounding teeth and bone. I have been trained to place and restore dental implants by one of the nations prominent implant specialists, Dr. Carl Misch, at the Misch International Implant Institute. In 2005 I was awarded the Fellowship status in the International Congress of Oral Implantologists.
Professional Dedication In addition to my practice, I have served on the Executive Board of the New Jersey Academy of General Dentistry, as well as, Managing Editor of their Journal and Treasurer.
