After graduating from New York University College of Dentistry where I received Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree and Certificate of Postgraduate Endodontic Training, I taught at NYU as Assistant Professor of the Division of Comprehensive Care, Applied Practice Administration and Behavioral Science and of the Division of Surgical Sciences. I was also the Director of Advanced Standing Endodontics at NYUCD for several years. I discontinued full time teaching in 1994 to devote my full attention to private practice.
For the past 12 years, I was very involved with Shriners Hospitals for Children®. I volunteer in various activities and functions and participate in their efforts in helping children with their orthopedic needs. In addition to serving on the Board of Governors in Philadelphia, I also participate at patient outreach clinics in Puerto Rico. Volunteering makes me feel good.
