There is no greater satisfaction than seeing the transition from a patient who arrives in our office and is uncomfortable smiling to completing treatment and leaving with a beautiful smile and the self confidence to go with it! I really enjoy getting to know our patients; it is fascinating to hear all about their families, jobs, interests, accomplishments. Each person is so unique and it is a great privilege to learn about each person's life outside the office.
Receiving an excellent education was very important to me, not only because it made me a more knowledgeable person, but also because my patients can have the confidence to know they’re receiving the very best care. I attended dental school, receiving my Doctorate of Dental Medicine and Master of Science degree in Orthodontics from the University of Manitoba. I am constantly involved in continuing education. By keeping abreast of all the latest innovations and technologies in orthodontics, I am better able to provide my patients with cutting edge, professional care.
In the Practice
Our team is so special because we are like a family. We love to spend time with each other at work as well as outside of work. We work hard but we like to have fun with our patients, all while giving them the highest quality of orthodontic care. Here in the office we like to laugh so jokes and teasing are always in abundance! We pride ourselves in treating our patients the way we would want others to treat members of our own families.
I am originally from Ottawa and am pleased to be able to practice orthodontics in the community where I grew up. I am married to my lovely wife, Christina, and we have three great children, Eleni, Alexia, and Jonathan. When I’m not in the office, I love hiking and biking with my family and our chocolate lab, Zorba, along the Jock River and in Gatineau Park.
