I love the challenge of delivering the highest possible quality of care to my many diverse patients. It's incredibly rewarding to see how happy my patients are when they look in the mirror and see themselves with a fabulous smile for the first time. I also love working with the caring and talented people who make up the team at Meredith Dental. This team far exceeds the average standard of care in our field while making it look easy, and they do it with TLC.
I have been practicing dentistry since 1982 when I received my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Northwestern University. My advanced training includes a residency in general dentistry at Booth Memorial Hospital in New York, attaining my certificate of completion in 1983, as well as a residency in Periodontics at New York University, for which I was awarded my specialty certificate in 1989. I became a Board Certified diplomate of the American Board of General Dentistry in 2014. Currently only 1 percent of all general dentists are Board Certified, so this was a great honor and a privilege.
I participate in approximately 100 hours of dental education programs every year, as both a life-long student and a teacher. In April, 2012, I received a Certificate of Achievement from Progressive Orthodontic Seminars for completion of 400 hours of continuing education in orthodontics. The initials 'MAGD' after the name indicate my status as a Master of the Academy of General Dentistry. In order to receive this designation, a passionate commitment to continuing education is essential. In July, 2009, I was awarded the MAGD certificate recognizing my completion of more than 1,100 hours of continuing education studying 16 different disciplines in dentistry (such as esthetics, periodontics, orthodontics, implants, etc.). This commitment to learning has enabled me to remain current with what is new in the profession and to incorporate the latest and best materials and techniques into the practice. I have attended more than 2000 hours of continuing education since graduation from dental school.
I am lucky to spend my life with my wife, Elyse. We both enjoy the company of our cat, Buddy, and we're true nature lovers. I maintain memberships with the Lakes Region Conservation Trust, the Loon Center, and the Nature Conservancy. I find outdoor activities like fly fishing and scuba diving very relaxing, but I also enjoy supporting the arts, especially music. I'll admit that I have a sweet tooth the size of Texas, but I stay healthy with diligent brushing, flossing, and exercise.

Healthgrades does not collect malpractice information for New Hampshire.
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 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.
Healthgrades reports details of a doctor’s malpractice history when the doctor has at least one closed medical malpractice claim within the last five years, even if he or she no longer practices in that state.
Healthgrades collects malpractice information from California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia and West Virginia. If your doctor has a malpractice claim, evaluate the information and determine if the action could potentially impact your quality of care. Sometimes multiple states report the same claim. If a provider practices in a state where data is unavailable, please reach out to your local state legislature to help make this data publicly available.
No sanctions history found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
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.
For which states does Healthgrades collect sanction history?
Healthgrades collects sanction history from all 50 U.S. states. Physicians with a disciplinary action in one state may move to another state where they have a clean record. Since Healthgrades painstakingly compiles disciplinary action information from all 50 states, Healthgrades website will show if a physician has a disciplinary action in more than one state.
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.
How far back does Healthgrades non-disciplinary board action history go?
Healthgrades reports non-disciplinary board action history from for 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.
