DDS, MS, Endodontist

  • Skokie


I graduated from University of Illinois College of Dentistry. Prior to studying in Dental School, I attended the University of Illinois College of Pharmacy. While I was in dental school, I worked as a clinical pharmacist at Children’s Memorial Hospital in Chicago. I received an advanced degree in Endodontics and a post-doctoral degree in Histology from the University of Illinois. I was a course director at the University of Illinois and Northwestern University, where I designed and taught a Clinical Therapeutics course.

I have presented more than 100 lectures at dental and dental specialty meetings. I have lectured extensively on pharmacology and therapeutics and I am considered to be an expert in dental therapeutics. Since I began practicing dentistry, I have served as President of the North Suburban Branch of the Chicago Dental Society. I have been General Chairman of the Illinois State Dental Society Annual Session, and I have served as Chairman of the Course Division of the Chicago Dental Society Annual Session . I was on staff at Evanston Hospital as the endodontic advisor for the general practice residency. I have kept up to date on all of the advances in endodontics and I have used the surgical microscope since 1991. I take great pride insuring that my patients receive the most comprehensive and advanced endodontic care that is currently available.

In my free time I enjoy playing golf and I am a BIG Chicago sports fan.
