WHAT IS THE FOCUS OF YOUR
We treat kids with special needs, adolescents,
teens and young adults.
WHAT TECHNOLOG Y HAS CHANGED
PATIENT CARE IN RECEN T YEARS?
Dentrix dental practice management software. We are completely paperless. All the
medical records are paperless. All the x-rays
are digital. They are put directly into the computer and integrate with the program, so when
you pull up a patient’s chart, you have access
to everything. You have access to the patient’s
records, treatment plan and X-rays, which to
me is a very huge thing. You don’t have to go
pulling charts. It saves your employees time;
it saves you time.
Also, I can get access from my computer
at home and my phone. If a parent calls in—
there’s been a trauma, we’ll get the phone
call late at night—I can log into my computer,
I can view all of my X-rays, all of the medical
history and all the records that we have.

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE
ACTIVITIES OUTSIDE THE OFFICE?
I am a Jersey boy, born and raised. So the Jersey
Shore is always a great place. I love to travel when
I can. I am a huge Yankees fan. I like sports. I like to
try to stay active. I like movies. I like to watch TV. But
spending time with my 1-year-old son and my wife,
that’s probably the most important thing in my world.

WHAT TECHNOLOGY HAS CHANGED PATIENT CARE IN RECENT
Planmeca ProMax cone-beam 3D imaging. Regular X-rays are taken in
two dimensions. The 3D is almost like a CT scan of the tooth and jaw.
You can dissect the tooth. You can take it apart, see the layers and the
three-dimensional views of the jaw and the area that you are looking at,
so it gives a more complete diagnosis and treatment plan prior to doing
a procedure on a patient, and especially for what we do, for pain management. Pain can be anywhere, and so that’s why 3D imaging has been
helpful in diagnosis. Before, without getting a full image of the area, only
two dimensions, you wouldn’t be totally guessing, but with this, you definitively know what the issues are.
