In 2005 I had the opportunity to move to the United State and start a new life. During the first years in this beautiful country, my wife and I were blessed with two handsome boys. We all love the outdoors, camping, swimming, video games and road trips. Because being in the dental field was always in the back of mi mind, I worked as a dental assistant for 8 years, and when the time was right I decided to go back to school, so I enrolled at Rutgers University. In December 2016 I finished the Rutgers Dental Hygiene program with high honors and currently hold license to practice as a Registered Dental hygienist and Local Anesthesia Provider in the state of New Jersey.
