Personal Statement


I owe a great deal to my mentor, Dr. Lester Rosenthal, for my love of dentistry and my knowledge and interest in prosthodontics.

I have two children, a pediatrician and an IT expert for a major corporation. I also have six granddaughters – the light of my life.

I love dentistry, it suits me perfectly and I especially love my patients. The time spent with my patients keeps me enthusiastic and brings me joyfully to the office each day. My spare time is spent skiing (mostly in Alta powder), playing tennis and mentoring my grandchildren. I have dual citizenship (Italian) and I enjoy traveling, especially with my wife who is a tour director and special events professional.
