I strive to make each and every patient feel comfortable during their Orthodontic journey, alleviating any apprehension they may have by thoroughly explaining their treatment and making a personalized plan for each patient. I make it my goal to put every patient at ease by treating them with the same care and concern as I do with my own family.
After receiving my dental degree in 2000 I went on to obtain a Masters in Laser Dentistry, a PhD in Orthodontics, and another Masters in Health Professionals Education. I am married to an exceptional pediatric dentist, Dr. Sarah, and together we have two boys. When I'm not in the clinic, I enjoy spending time with my family and doing activities such as: kayaking, camping, hiking, and traveling.
