How long have you been with Babylon Dental Care?
I just started! I am the most recent addition to the dental team at BDC, and I’m very excited to be here.
Where did you grow up?
I’m from Bayside in Queens originally. Most recently I had moved up to Connecticut for a few years, but I’m very excited to be back on Long Island.
What do you love about being a dentist?
To me, the best thing is the personal connections I make with my patients. There’s nothing like relieving someone’s pain and giving them their confidence back. It’s an unforgettable experience.
How do you put your patients at ease?
I always speak normally with them. I don’t want to act like “the doctor,” I want to level with them. My first priority is to understand what they’re looking for and what their treatment goals are. I want to assure them that they’re not going to feel pain and that I’ll take care of them.
When did you know you wanted to be a dentist?
As an adult, actually! I didn’t even decide I wanted to become a dentist until I was 25, but I feel that it’s never too late to get into a career you feel strongly about.
What are your hobbies?
I really love to read and to cook with my wife. We also love to try new restaurants in our neighborhood, and every time I go on vacation, I go scuba diving at least once!
