I am very excited to carry on the tradition of excellent dental care at Fairview Dental. I enjoy coming to the office each day, and am blessed to have the opportunity to share my passion with my patients and provide comfortable and quality dental care.
A lifelong patient of Fairview Dental, I grew up in nearby Lisle and attended Benet Academy. I continued on to the University of Notre Dame where I graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Science. My academic journey next led me to The Ohio State University College of Dentistry, where I graduated magna cum laude and received my Doctorate of Dental Surgery. During my fourth year in dental school, I completed extra course work in the oral surgery department, and gained invaluable experience treating more intensive cases.
Since dental school, I have continued my education by traveling to various seminars and through consistent online learning. In my free time, I enjoy reading the latest literature on new methods and technologies in dentistry. I make use of several of these technologies in the office such as Invisalign Clear Aligners, CEREC same day crowns, and WaveOne Endodontics. I am driven to continue learning as much as I can so that I can provide the most up-to-date dental treatments to my patients.
I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work each day with my fabulous team to provide you with our best care. Taking care of your dental needs in the most comfortable and pain-free manner is my goal, and thanks to modern dentistry, this is very achievable. Making sure patients understand their treatment options is also very important to me. I enjoy taking the time to educate our patients so that they can be in control of their dental treatment and make the best decisions regarding their oral health.
My wife, Natalie, and I look forward to starting a family here in the western suburbs, where I have a large extended family spread out among the Fox Valley and greater Chicagoland area. In our spare time, we enjoy traveling, exploring the local food scene, and cheering on the Cubs, Bears, Buckeyes, and above all, the Fighting Irish.
While at Ohio State, I was very involved in the community. I served as the student body president for the six professional schools at OSU, and I enjoyed planning many events and fundraisers around Columbus. I also served as the vice president of our OSU chapter of the American Student Dental Association, and I sat on the board of the Columbus Dental Society. Now that I’m in the Aurora area, I have continued my leadership involvement as Vice President of the Aurora Dental Society. I am excited to continue my engagement in the community and see where I can get involved next.
