Everyone has a great story and I have been inspired as I get to know my patients and witness their triumphs. My patients and staff help me see not only the bright side of life, but also make me more aware of everyone’s unique challenges and viewpoints. My greatest joy is to fix a problem for a patient that has impacted their quality of life. From a beautiful smile to a great fitting denture to a painless injection, I aim to exceed expectations. Quite simply, I love people and I love fixing things…especially teeth!
EDUCATION AND CONTINUING EDUCATION
I attended the University of the Pacific for my dental training, earning a Doctorate of Dental Surgery. My formal education in dentistry has provided me with a strong foundation of knowledge and experience. By regularly participating in continuing education, I am able to stay current on the latest technology and dental treatments. My patients deserve the best, and continuing education allows me to provide my patients with more options and better results.
I am also a member of several professional associations that provide me with several opportunities for continuing education throughout the year.American Dental AssociationNorth Carolina Dental AssociationAmerican Academy of Craniofacial Pain
OUTSIDE THE OFFICE
Originally from Southern California and Phoenix, Arizona, I now reside in Brevard with my wonderful family. My wife, Randi, and I have five children, Bartel, Chloe, Annie, Oliver, and Charlie. I love spending time with my children, and watching as they grow and change through the years.
My leisure activities include restoring classic VWs, off-road racing, and volunteering with the Boy Scouts, of which I am an Eagle Scout. I am also a pastor at my church and support Farming for Family.
