If you live or work in the Center City or Bella Vista section of Philadelphia, we are here to give you and your family the best care we can. Many of our patients work at HUP, CHOP, Penn Presbyterian, Drexel, etc as well as local small businesses in the Philadelphia area.

We provide our patients with a clean and comfortable office filled with state-of-the-art equipment. Stop in and say HI! Our friendly, knowledgeable staff can help you schedule an appointment or answer any questions you may have about our practice.

We know that many people simply don’t have time during the work week for a trip to the dentist, so our office has extended hours and Saturday hours to make it more convenient for you.

We offer expert general and preventative dental care as well as cosmetic dentistry. There’s no need to go anywhere else!
