I am originally from New England and spent most of my childhood in Barnstable, Massachusetts, a little town on Cape Cod.
I went to Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts for my undergraduate degree in Biology. After college I attended Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston.
Following Dental School I continued my training and completed the two-year orthodontic residency program at Tufts in 1985. For several years after my residency I taught part time at Tufts Dental School.
I married my wife Julie in 1993 and moved to Arizona in September of 1996. We have four daughters who were all born here in Arizona. My family and I love living here and enjoy many of the outdoor activities that our state offers.
