He is board certified by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and the National Dental Board of Anesthesiology. After completion of his rigorous training in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, he completed two very competitive fellowships - one in Craniomaxillofacial Surgery under the world renowned Craniofacial Surgeon, Dr. Bruce Horswell, and another in Orthognathic and Facial Aesthetic Surgery under world renowned Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Jeffery Posnick.

Afterwards, he completed his fellowship in Craniomaxillofacial Surgery at West Virginia University/Charleston Area Medical Center in Charleston, West Virginia.
