I am a maxillofacial prosthodontist and dental oncologist, which means that I create artificial devices to help fix defects or deficits of the face, jaws, and surrounding tissues.
I work closely with our head and neck surgeons and plastic surgeons to improve or simplify their surgeries. We may use surgical prostheses, dental extractions, or dental implants. Additionally, we may create prostheses to help patients heal after surgery or to use during therapies that follow, such as radiation and chemotherapy. Once healing is complete, I plan and make long-term prosthetics. I also provide various prostheses for other parts of the face, including the ears, nose, eyes, or a combination of parts.
As a dental oncologist, I am concerned with the effects that diseases of the mouth and teeth have on various cancer treatments — particularly bone marrow and stem cell transplants and head and neck radiation. Giving patients a thorough dental and oral check-up before treatment can minimize complications.
I am also concerned with the effects of cancer therapies on the mouth and teeth. Head and neck radiation therapy can increase the chance that patients will develop dental disease after treatment. I help patients address that risk.
I have also been active in education and research. I am a part-time lecturer at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine, a diplomate of the American Board of Prosthodontics, a fellow of the American College of Prosthodontists, and a fellow of the American Academy of Maxillofacial Prosthetics. I am actively engaged in clinical research, with a focus on patient-reported quality-of-life outcomes.

Most major health insurers offer plans that include MSK as one of their in-network providers. If MSK is in-network, it means all our doctors are too. Medicaid and New York State Medicare also provide benefits for care at MSK.Learn more
