Although I may be a pediatric dentist, I am a husband and father first. My lovely wife and I have three wonderful children who keep us busy and on our toes every day. I don't think I completely appreciated how much of an opportunity I have to impact the lives of the children in my office until I had my own children. I appreciate and am humbled by the parents who come from hours away to bring their children to my office because it shows the dedication they have to the oral health of their children and every day I strive to be that dedicated to the well being of my own kids. I am a better pediatric dentist because of my kids who have taught me to laugh at the little things and not take everything seriously.
