About

Bio

Over my 20 years in the dental field, I’ve had opportunities to work with thousands of patients & hundreds of providers in 5 different states. Dentistry has changed immensely, yet people miss two things year after year: Dentistry can literally change lives; and second, the quest for those positive changes can be very simple. After graduating from the top-ranked University of Michigan Dental School, I served as a dentist in the Air Force, followed by a number of years in private practice. During my advanced training residency at David Grant Medical Center, I completed over 2300 hours of advanced training across all recognized dental specialties. We are now able to offer the professionalism & advanced care of a much larger facility in the comfort & warmth of a small practice.
