Changing Lives, One Person at a Time
Practicing orthodontics gives me personal and professional fulfillment as I create positive changes in my patients’ lives.
I love getting to know each patient throughout the course of their treatment. No matter the person’s age, each gains self-esteem and confidence as they see the change in their appearance. Witnessing a person’s excitement the day we take the braces off, and they see all they have accomplished, is the highlight of what I do: that person will carry the beautifully healthy, engaging smile with them for the rest of their life!
Orthodontics requires me to be a critical thinker and problem solver: while the mechanics of tooth movement are well understood, each patient has their own concerns and I must design a treatment plan that works for the whole of their situation, not only their clinical needs. No two individuals are the same, each with their own treatment goals, needs, and personalities, and those differences always keeps things fresh.
I like that challenge and, even more, appreciate the opportunity to bring my knowledge and skills to transforming lives: one person and one smile at a time.

I graduated from my orthodontic residency in May 2018 and have been practicing as an associate at Rowe Orthodontics since graduation.
This is an amazing practice that guarantees patients will receive the best orthodontic experience available, from excellent providers who always prioritize the patient’s wellbeing. Each member of the staff is fun-loving, problem-solving, compassionate, and friendly.
In addition to private practice, I also serve as part-time clinical faculty at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine, teaching orthodontics.
Being part of Harvard Orthodontics ensures I am well-versed in the latest technology and orthodontic techniques. I particularly enjoy hearing fresh ideas from other faculty and residents.
Continuing education, in both general dentistry and orthodontics, is a core part of my commitment to the profession and my patients. I seek to broaden my understanding and skills while learning about new methodologies and staying current with the latest research.

Beyond the Practice
Born in Springfield, MA, I grew up in New Milford, CT and have lived in Newton, MA for several years, sharing my life with my long-term girlfriend, Megan. All of my grandparents, aunts, and uncles are in the Springfield area, my mom and dad are in Connecticut, and I have a brother living in Ireland.
Outside the office, I enjoy time with family, hanging out with friends, and playing Ultimate Frisbee and hiking. I’m an avid fan of the Boston sports teams, too: Patriots, Red Sox, Celtics, Bruins, and Boston College!
