Graduating from the University of Toronto Faculty of Dentistry and being elected to the Omicron Kappa Upsilon Honour Dental Society was a fantastic and rewarding experience. I have always been a small town boy at heart and after living in the “big city” for four years during dental school, I decided to go back to my roots. Having grown up in Northern Ontario, I was looking to replicate my childhood closer to Toronto; I finally decided on Alliston, Ontario as the place that I would practice dentistry and call home.
In 2009, I finally completed a lifelong goal of mine: marrying my high-school sweetheart. It is through my wife, Tamara, that I was able to maintain my Northern Ontario roots throughout dental school and while living in Toronto. We both enjoy biking, hiking, and country drives. My true passion is sports, in particular hockey and golfing. In 2013, Tamara and I welcomed our baby girl, who has changed our lives for the better and have brought a different perspective to both my personal and professional life.
I firmly feel that the dental profession is constantly evolving and I have committed myself to a lifelong goal of continuing education. It is my belief that my patients are the ultimate benefactors of my lifelong learning. I believe that open, honest communication between myself and my patients is essential in proper and successful dental care.
I’m looking forward to meeting you and providing you with lifelong smiles! Welcome to our Tooth Doctors Family!
My professional career has been a long yet rewarding journey. I started out by achieving both an honours Bachelor’s degree and a Master’s of Science degree (B.Sc and M.Sc) from York University. Through Statistics Canada and my graduate studies, I went on to author several research publications in epidemiology and health sciences. It was this that ultimately set the foundation as well as the spark within me to pursue Dentistry thereafter. Upon achieving my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Toronto, I have been able to further expand my knowledge and training through extensive continuing education courses and seminars in order to provide the best evidence-based care. Moreover, I am actively involved with the Muskoka Simcoe Dental Society and The Academy of General Dentistry, and of course a proud member of the Ontario Dental Association.
My dental philosophy is to provide the highest standard of care that is individualized, current, and which incorporates advanced dental technology. I firmly advocate the belief that a healthy mouth is an essential component to a healthy body. Furthermore, as a dental provider, I believe preventive care and education play a critical role in achieving optimal dental health.
Outside my professional activities, I am an avid traveller and enjoy hiking, jogging, volleyball, and shopping. I look forward to having you join us in creating a world of smiles!
