I am the product of a blue collar Midwestern family that taught me the value of hard work and dedication. After serving five years in the United States Air Force, I attended California State Sacramento, and then the number 2 ranked dental school in the country, the University of Nebraska. I completed two externships, one in Public Health in Washington State and one at Indian health Services in Flagstaff, Arizona. In 2005 I purchased a smaller dental practice in Brookings, Oregon where I spent the next eight years growing and establishing myself not only as the premier dental office in town but as a real community member. My wife and I were involved in volunteer dentistry with Medical Teams International, community health programs, and last but not least, coaching and mentoring. I coached at the recreation level as well as the high school level for both boys and girls. I have a strong belief in the power of mentoring and growth through sports.
My wife and our four children are so grateful to be a part of this beautiful community. We continue to support the community in coaching and mentoring, fundraising and community volunteer service.
I love to spend time with my wife and family. We love the Ashland community and the beautiful trails, mountains and lakes in the area. My individual passions are coaching basketball and competing at Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
A few interesting facts about me are, before I started at this office in 2012, I lived in New Zealand for a year working as a dental hygienist. I recently married a very lovely fellow from there and we live happily with our two dogs. Upon meeting me you will soon figure out I love what I do. As far as I’m concerned I have the best job ever. You can always count on being greeted with a smile and sincere dedication to your dental needs.
