Dr. Michael grew up in Northern Virginia. He graduated magna cum laude from Virginia Tech with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology in 2008. After spending time with his own general dentist, appreciating both the art and science required, he became inspired to pursue a career in dentistry. In 2013, he earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry. To enhance his knowledge and skills after dental school, he completed a one year Advanced Education General Dentistry residency at the University of California in Los Angeles (UCLA).

He continues to take continuing education courses to enrich his interests in restorative, implant and cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Michael is an active member of the Spear Faculty Study Club with like minded dentists to broaden his understanding of professional techniques and topics, and to share effective skills and expertise. He is also a standing member of the Pankey Institute, and Academy of General Dentistry.

Dr. Michael is happy to be back on the East Coast near his family and friends and excited to be serving his community. He is thrilled for the opportunity to be working at one of the top dental practices in the Northern Virginia area at Annandale Smiles. His desire is to build lifelong relationships with his patients and help them gain the confidence that comes from a healthy and beautiful smile. Keeping healthy himself, his favorite pastimes revolve around sports including playing basketball, running, and learning to play golf.
