About

Bio

I received my Dental Training at Marquette University. After this, I was Hospital trained by the United States Navy learning hospital Medicine and Dentistry. Finishing 7 years of Naval Service, I went to The Ohio State University and obtained a Masters Degree and specialty Certificate in Orthodontics. I have practiced here in Olympia Washington and have successfully placed my practice in the the 3-D diagnostic and treatment area, offering a greater diagnostic and treatment capability. This has really let me draw on the Medical training I received in the Navy and it results in a greatly enhanced treatment benefit for patients in our office.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
