EDUCATION AND EXPERIENCE
I graduated with honors from Loyola University School of Dentistry and completed my specialty training in periodontics, dental implants, and intravenous sedation in 1982 at the University of Illinois Dental School, and my residency in anesthesia and medicine at Rush University Medical Center. My undergraduate degree was received from Northwestern University. Having completed a general practice residency and fellowship in general anesthesia at Rush, Presbyterian/St. Luke’s Medical Center, I am also able to offer my patients intravenous sedation.
To me, continuing education is the life-blood of dentistry. It's a way to expand my knowledge base, keep things interesting and pertinent, and keep up with new developments. I attend roughly 20 to 30 days of continuing education per year in order to keep up my skill level in medicine, anesthesia, dentistry, and practice management. This enables me to treat my patients with the most current, proven, and successful techniques and therapies.
I have been in private practice since 1979 and at our present location in Hoffman Estates since 1981. This has given me the opportunity to establish an excellent rapport with the community and general dentists in the surrounding Chicago-land area.
I also have a passion for teaching others. For more than 20 years, I have lectured on multiple topics, which include practice management and leadership, advanced periodontal procedures, and CT imaging and virtualization. Presently, I teach laser surgical procedures throughout the United States and the world.
