About

Bio

I am a dentist. I own my own practice and have served the area of Lakeview for over eighteen years. I place implants and enjoy educating my patients. I love to hunt, fish, and be in the outdoors. I stay active with my wife running and doing cross-fit.

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.
