I like working with my hands and enjoy helping people.
Each day I get to meet new and interesting people.
I paint as a hobby and have been able to exhibit and sell some of my artwork as well.
I enjoy hanging out with my family, being outdoors, and traveling.
I was raised in Miami and now live Boca Raton. Great places to be. Sunny, great beaches, just got to dodge the occasional hurricane.

The main thing that made me want to become a dentist is the influence of my grandfather, as well as other family members, who encouraged me to pursue a career in the medical sciences. They showed me the joy and sense of fulfillment that can be derived from helping others live better, healthier lives.
What I love about practicing dentistry is the opportunity to help others live happier, healthier, and more confident lives. I also absolutely love working with my hands and merging the art and science of dentistry to achieve an excellent and long last result.
A fun fact is that I was a scratch golfer by the age of fifteen!
When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, traveling, eating (I consider myself a big foodie), and playing golf.
I was born in Johannesburg, South Africa. I moved to the US when I was 10 years old but my country of birth left a permanent mark and very much shaped me into the person I am today. I have an incredible love and appreciation of other cultures, as well as for this amazing country that I live in today!

I’ve always loved to draw so the artistic part of dentistry and being able to use my two hands to create something is what drew me into the field of dentistry.
I love creating beautiful smiles that change people’s lives.
I am a huge tennis junkie and follow the tour on TV eleven months of the year. My dream is to attend all four Grand Slams.
When I’m not working, I enjoy spending all my time with my beautiful wife, three daughters, and our dog.
I live for them and they bring me the most joy in life.
I emigrated from Israel to Florida at the age of nine. My dad wanted my brother and I to have the opportunity to achieve our dreams in the greatest country in the world.

I have always enjoyed talking to new people and genuinely love helping people feel their best! Dentistry helps me combine the two!
I love the ability to change someone's life. The difference a beautiful smile can make is truly breathtaking.
I grew up singing and acting in theater until I was in college. I thought music was going to be my career path for the longest time.
I love to workout, go to the beach, and try new restaurants!
I was never a fan of the cold. I grew tired of New Jersey winters very quickly and always knew I would end up somewhere that stayed warm year-round. I do miss my family in New Jersey very much but now they have a beautiful place to experience when they come visit me!

The medical sciences have always fascinated me. I am also very hands-on and dentistry allows me to integrate both of these aspects.
Dentistry allows me to help make a positive change to my patients' lives through a healthy smile. It is a privilege to be part of my patients' oral care.
I am car enthusiast - I do all of my own routine maintenance work.
When not in the office, you can find me on the water, at the gym, or trying out new foods.
Born and raised in New Jersey, Florida was the perfect escape from the cold. People take time off to vacation in Florida, why not live there? There are palm trees year-round!
