I love the practice of orthodontics. Whether our patients are children or adults, I enjoy getting to know them and helping them achieve a great smile. Each day provides new and interesting challenges that I look forward to solving. Since no two patients are alike, no two orthodontic challenges are alike, and that’s what makes it fun!
Education and Experience
I earned my Bachelor of Science degree from Wayne State University and received my Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry. I practiced general dentistry for two years in the United States Air Force and then continued my education at the University of Michigan where I received my Master of Science degree in Orthodontics. Later, I became a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics and a Fellow of the American College of Dentists.
I have always enjoyed teaching and for many years I taught orthodontics and orthognathic surgery at the University of Detroit Mercy. Today, I am an Adjunct Associate Professor of Orthodontics at the University of Michigan School of Dentistry and teach craniofacial orthodontics in the orthodontic department. I am also on the Ian Jackson Craniofacial and Cleft Palate Clinic team at Beaumont Hospital in Southfield, MI.
In the Office
I am fortunate to have such talented orthodontic assistants, technicians, and receptionists on my team. Many on the staff have proved their worth over many years of wonderful service. I also feel absolutely fortunate to be able to practice with Dr. Rebecca Rubin, my daughter. What more could a father want?
I am a native of Detroit and live in Bloomfield Hills.
