DDS, FRCD(C), Dip. ABOMS
I was born and raised in Thornhill, Ontario. I completed my undergraduate B.Sc. and D.D.S. at the University of Toronto. During my studies I received numerous awards. This includes the Ontario Dental Association Proficiency Award for the highest standing in general dentistry and a summer internship at Princess Margaret Hospital in the Department of Dental Oncology.
I then completed residency training in oral and maxillofacial surgery at Boston University where I participated in the care of patients in multiple hospitals. This was primarily at three tertiary care centers in the Boston metropolitan area: Boston University Medical Center, Harvard’s Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, and the Veteran Affairs Boston Healthcare System. Two of these hospitals are level 1 trauma centers and one is the busiest trauma center in New England. As part of my training, I participated in an integrated one year general surgery internship including rotations in surgical intensive care, otolaryngology and plastic surgery. I also completed dedicated anesthesia rotations in adult and pediatric anesthesia.
My training encompasses the full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery with over 1500 procedures logged. This includes over 250 implant surgeries and over 100 orthognathic surgeries. I was also involved in a variety of extracurricular activities including a cleft lip and palate mission to Colombia with Healing the Children, a podium presentation at the American Society of Temporomandibular Joint Surgeons, and publication in the Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.
It gives me great pleasure to return to Canada and serve the Newmarket and surrounding areas. I have staff privileges at Southlake Regional Health Centre. I am also a member of multiple professional organizations including the Ontario Society of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, the Canadian Dental Association and the Ontario Dental Association.
