One of the joys of being a dentist is having the ability to improve patients' quality of life. Not only am I responsible for diagnosing dental conditions, but I must also learn about and understand my patients' expectations. In doing so, I can provide more than just healthcare services; I can establish a healthy dentist-patient relationship which can ultimately lead to more effective dental treatment. As a dentist, I have had the unique opportunity to help people in so many different ways. I can help patients overcome any fears or phobias that have prevented them from obtaining proper dental care. I can make their lives more fulfilling by allowing them to smile with confidence and allowing them to properly function. I feel eternally blessed to be able to change peoples' lives in such a positive way. I graduated from New York University School of Dentistry in 1977 and completed my general practice residency at the University of Florida. There, I obtained advanced training in all aspects of dentistry that has allowed me to go beyond the scope of most general dentists and provide my patients with a wide and varied array of dental services at one convenient location. I have worked in various types of dental practices from the inner city to Park Avenue in Manhattan. Seeing many different practices allowed me to set my own vision for what type of dental practice I would like. I am constantly taking continuing education courses and traveling throughout the country in search of the most interesting and informative classes the profession has to offer. I am on the cutting-edge of all of the latest technology in cosmetic dentistry, implant dentistry, and many other aspects of this ever-changing field. I take a proactive, not reactive, approach to dentistry. Outside the Office I was born in Brooklyn, New York, and lived there until I graduated from dental school. In 1981, I moved to Cherry Hill with my wife, Randee, and started my own dental practice. My wife was a major influence in shaping my practice into what it is today. She was my first assistant, office manager, receptionist, and my one and only employee until she became pregnant with our first daughter. I have two beautiful daughters, Lindsay and Chelsey. Lindsay is a lawyer/MBA, and works in New York City. Chelsey is an actress living in Beverly Hills, California. In my spare time, I love the outdoors. I enjoy playing tennis and biking and have also become a wine enthusiast, traveling extensively to visit vineyards and wineries throughout the world. I've learned to balance my life, enjoying the time spent working and the time with my family. My charitable work includes the Dental Lifeline Network in which I donate my time and service to help people in need. We help a few people a year by providing comprehensive dental reconstruction. It is a true life changer for those people. My office also donates toothbrushes, toothpaste, and other dental supplies to underprivileged families throughout the Jewish and Christian community. My staff and I often donate our time to those patients that truly are in need of dental care and just cannot afford it.

Medical malpractice is issued when negligence by a doctor causes injury to a patient. For example, a doctor may improperly diagnose, treat or medicate outside the standard of medical care. The three types of malpractice are: a settlement, an arbitration award, or a judgment.
If my doctor has malpractice history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If your doctor has a malpractice claim, evaluate the information and determine if the action could potentially impact the quality of care you receive. Claim settlements and arbitration awards may occur for a variety of reasons, which should not necessarily reflect negatively on the doctor's professional competence or conduct. You may want to use this information to start a discussion with the doctor about his or her history and specific ability to provide healthcare for you.
How far back does Healthgrades malpractice history go?

What is a sanction or disciplinary action?
A sanction, also known as a disciplinary action, is an action taken to punish or restrict a doctor who has demonstrated professional misconduct. Sanctions may be imposed by a state medical board, professional medical licensing organization, or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
If my doctor has sanction history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a sanction, it does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor-quality doctor. Some sanctions are not related to medical care, and involve a doctor’s finances or administrative activities. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, we recommend that you evaluate the doctor’s sanction information and determine how severe or relevant you think the sanction cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades sanction history go?
Healthgrades reports state and federal sanctions from the previous five years, except when a doctor's license has been revoked or surrendered. Healthgrades displays all actions for doctors whose licenses have been revoked or surrendered.

0 Board Actions
No board actions found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
What are board actions?
Board actions are non-disciplinary actions imposed upon a doctor based on a complaint investigation. A patient or medical colleague may file a complaint with that state medical board or professional licensing organization, which then investigates the complaint. Board actions are intended to ensure that a doctor is able to perform safe medical and health care tasks.
Types of non-disciplinary actions include an advisory letter, a corrective action agreement, a limitation or restriction on the medical or healthcare tasks a doctor can perform, or a voluntary agreement by the doctor not to practice. A board action can also include a termination of a corrective action agreement or voluntary agreement, which allows the doctor to return to full practice.
If my doctor has a board action, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a board action, it means he or she has had a non-disciplinary action imposed upon him or her. It does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor quality doctor. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, evaluate the doctor's board action information and determine how severe or relevant you think the cause and action were.
