I practice in a small town in West Tennessee. I commute by recumbent bicycle several days a week. I try to eat as a vegan, though just being a vegetarian in my area is tough. I am a life-long learner of more than my profession of dentistry. I serve my profession through active participation on the AGD board. I serve my church family by singing in the choir and being an active deacon. I serve my community by being on the Arts board. I believe in helping others when I can and these pats on the back are hard to elicit.
