Prior to perfecting smiles at Brookhaven Family Dentistry––a division of the Centre for Family Dentistry––resident dentist Dr. Dinesh S. Tewari put a BS, MS, and PhD into practice as a published biochemical researcher before graduating from the Temple University DMD program.

At Revolution Martial Arts Institute, a supportive and positive environment offers the perfect setting for classes that emphasize proper form as well as the mind-body connection.
