Over the course of my 46 years of general practice, I have built a broad experiential reservoir from which to draw. In my early years, in addition to PG Prosthodontics, general practice, and teaching, I was involved with research both at the College and in practice. For 23 years, I served as Adjunct Professor and supervising dentist for the Dental Hygiene Department at SUNY Farmingdale. Additionally, I volunteered my services running a clinic on a kibbutz in Israel for a month every summer for 5 years.

As the founding partner in a large group practice for 37 years, I was the dental consultant for a number of prominent publications and I was selected as the on-air expert for The Bernard Meltzer Show on WOR radio. I consider it my great good fortune to be teaching at this time in my career.
