The most rewarding aspect of dentistry is building meaningful relationships of trust between patients, our doctors, and the team members in our practice. I genuinely enjoy using my talents and skills to improve my patients' quality of life.


I grew up in Michigan and received my formal education in Texas. My wife and I have been married since 2008 and have four children whom we love and adore. I spend my free time with my family, coaching kids' sports, in my woodshop building things, or outdoors camping, hiking, etc.
