A person’s smile can affect their entire outlook on life. Being part of a profession that helps people achieve this is very special. Creating smiles for children and adults requires meticulous attention to detail as well as an artistic eye and this always intrigued me. Orthodontics has evolved tremendously since my childhood and no longer is the “metal tracks” the only option. Being a certified Invisalign and Icognito (lingual braces) provider, I can give patients numerous options to achieve a straighter and healthier smile.
As a native of New York City, my heart was set on starting my career in the city I call home. After completing my Bachelor of Sciences with honors from Cornell University, I pursued my doctorate in dentistry at Stony Brook University. This was also where I completed my specialty residency in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics.
Practicing in New York City not only allows me to collaborate with some of the most talented dentists in the world but also attend and even lecture in various study clubs. In addition, my faculty appointment at New York University helps keep me on the forefront of my field and train future dentists in orthodontics.
My wife, Zehra, my sons, Rohin and Ajay, and I enjoy living in Manhattan and taking advantage of all it has to offer – the parks, museums, shows, and restaurants. We are as much a part of the city as it is a part of us.
