My father instilled the importance of a strong education in me at a young age, and I was always impressed with my mother’s artistic abilities. Around the age of twelve, my mother and younger sister underwent orthodontic treatment. I had the opportunity to observe, first hand, the positive impact that it had on both of their lives and the pleasant environment in which their care was delivered. I knew then, in the sixth grade, that orthodontics would be my passion and an opportunity to positively impact peoples’ lives. Realizing that excellence is a goal that faces many challenges, I recieved my Masters Degree in Oral Biology from the Baltimore College of Dental Surgery and taught as a professor in the post graduate orthodontic program there. In addition, I currently participate in product design and development with one of the world’s top orthodontic companies. Our practice has been serving south central Pennsylvania for over 45 years, and we have been providing custom “Damon” smiles for over 15 years. I am proud to share my passion with others in order to enhance and serve the community.
