Education, Training & Affiliated Organizations

I earned my Doctor of Dental Surgery at Meharry Medical College in Nashville, TN and served my residency in Nashville TN and New York City where I learned the theory and practice of anesthesiology, surgery and trauma in both inpatient and outpatient environments.

When I moved to San Antonio TX in 2002 to begin my private practice, I volunteered my dental services for indigent care in the Barrio Comprehensive Care in San Antonio.  This experience reinforced my knowledge about how proper sedation, laser dentistry and innovative technology are so critical to the comfort, care and recovery periods for patients.

After four years in San Antonio an opportunity to take over Dr. Joel Siegel’s practice here in Tyson’s Corner, McLean VA presented itself. I love the area and my patients. I would be delighted to serve you and your family.
