Welcome to our family dental practice.

I was born and raised in New York City. I received my Bachelors of Science degree in Biology with honors from Manhattan College in 1976.

I chose to attend the State University of New York at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine and received my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 1980. Upon graduation I completed a one year General Practice Residency program at the Erie County Medical Center.

After completion of our educations my wife Dr. Donna Bitka and I chose to make Western New York our permanent home. In 1983 we purchased the Hamburg dental practice of Dr. Eugene Pantera, Jr. Our family dental practice is now 25 years young and going strong.

I have completed over 1000 hours of continuing education in dentistry. I also have advanced training in implants and all ceramic crowns, veneers and fillings.

Professionally I am a member of the:

      American Dental Association
      New York State Dental Association
      Eighth District Dental Society
      Erie County Dental Society
      Innovative Dental Study Club

Outside of the office I am committed to community service. I have been an active member of the Lakeshore/Hamburg Lions Club since 1985. I have served in numerous positions including club president.

I reside in Orchard Park with my wife Donna and our two children Natalie and Anthony. We our very proud of the fact that both our children have chosen careers in healthcare. Our daughter is attending the UB School of Pharmacy and our son is attending the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine.

My hobbies include travel and caring for our pets Tess the Doberman and Bandit the rescued cat.
