After graduating I had the honor to serve as a dentist in the United States Navy for five years. My first year was spent in an Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency where I received additional training in all of the dental specialties.
The next four years in the Navy took me all over the world as I served onboard two different ships, the USS PEARL HARBOR (LSD-52) and the USS ANCHORAGE (LPD-23). As part of the commissioning crew of the ANCHORAGE I had the responsibility to establish the dental department and led the combined medical and dental departments as the ship was brought to life and put in to service.
I am fortunate to continue my military service in the Navy Reserves.
Throughout school and my career I have been supported by my amazing wife, Erica. We are the proud parents of 3 daughters and 1 son. Family is everything to me, and I love spending time with them.
I approach dentistry as I approach life, with a good attitude and an open mind. I’m all about teaching the patient and letting them make an informed decision as opposed to telling them what to do. I encourage questions and want patients to understand what their options are.
My goal in dentistry is to work with people to provide quality treatment in a comfortable environment. I want to connect with patients and earn their trust.
