He completed his dental training at NYU, where he graduated with a Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree. He was also accepted into NYU’s highly competitive orthodontic residency program directly out of dental school. During his residency, he served as president and chief resident of his orthodontic class. During that time, he also discovered a passion for treating children and adults with facial deformities. Coinciding his passion, his research thesis to attain specialty certification involved children with cleft deformities. Upon graduation, he was inducted into OKU, the National Dental Honor Society.
He enjoyed the time he spent in his research so much that he applied & was accepted to the craniofacial orthodontic fellowship program at the Institute of Reconstructive Plastic Surgery, at NYU’s Langone Medical Center.
