Dr. Sacks' father was a surgeon and worked hard to give his patients the best care possible. He allowed his son to shadow him, to follow him as he performed surgeries and followed up with his patients. This taught Dr. Sacks two very important lessons. First, the doctor's calling is complete, holistic, patient-centered care, and that orthopedic surgery wasn't for him. Instead, Dr. Sacks became an orthodontist because he wanted to care for people and bring patients a little joy as they pursue a healthy, beautiful smile.
Dr. Sacks has numerous professional affiliations: the American Association of Orthodontists, the American Board of Orthodontists, the Mid-Atlantic Association of Orthodontists, and the New Jersey Association of Orthodontists. Dr. Sacks enjoys spending quality time with his wife, Jill, and their twins, Gracie and Henry. He also enjoys mountain biking, golf, traveling, and helping support the local community.
