After achieving his undergraduate degree at Pennsylvania State University, he went on to pursue his Doctor of Dental Surgery at the State University of New York at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine, where he first met Dr. Khanna. He then underwent a General Practice Residency at Carilion Clinic Dental Care in Roanoke, where he learned a great deal about not only oral surgery, but the vital connection between oral health and systemic health.
