As a kid growing up in Miami, Florida I could never have imagined life’s twists and turns that would bring me to work with the incredible team of doctors and staff at MyKidsDDS. Collectively they provide the most amazing compilation of knowledge and caring I’ve ever seen in a dental office and I feel so privileged to join them.
I never thought I’d be a dentist. As a child, my pediatric dental experience was nothing like that provided by Dr. Kogut and Dr. Villaseñor. My fear of dentistry didn’t change until I was a senior in High School and I visited the orthodontist for the first time. I had terrible self-esteem, lacked confidence, and didn’t smile. My entire personality changed after a few months in braces when I became proud to smile.
A year before graduating from the University of Miami with a degree in Biomedical Engineering I applied for dental school and was accepted to study at the University of Florida. My engineering background was unique in dental school and I think perfectly prepared me to study and practice Orthodontics. After dental school I was ecstatic to attend the best orthodontic residency in the country at Baylor College of Dentistry. In 2014 I was thrilled to return to the Dental School as a part time orthodontic instructor.
In my time in private practice I’ve worked in sophisticated orthodontic practices that focus on treatment of children, teenagers, and adults. I work with standard metal and clear braces but also enjoy utilizing both Invisalign and lingual braces.
My incredible family inspires me each and every day. My wife Staci is the best 8th grade math teacher in Highland Park. My daughter Stella, from her love of painted nails to her obsession with clothes, is a princess in every way. On the other hand my son Miles would prefer spending every waking moment driving in fast cars and looking at big trucks. In my free time I work hard to be as good a dad to my kids as my father was to me.
I am so excited to be a part of the incredible family at MyKidsDDS. I look forward to meeting each and every one of you while I’m engineering smiles.
