Improving Lives by Improving Dental Health
As a dentist, I have the opportunity to better people’s lives by improving their oral health. By improving their dental health, a patient’s confidence improves, their overall health improves, and they are genuinely happier.
I’m passionate about creating positive changes for my patients. I enjoy seeing the transformation that happens when a patient finishes treatment and is confident to smile again. I also enjoy complex cases, where I’m able to restore function or relieve a patient’s pain.
Working with many unique people keeps me well-rounded as a person. Many of my patients have been with our practice for more than 15 years. Being able to serve these wonderful people, seeing them over the years and learning about the changes in their lives, is an opportunity not experienced by many. We also have many new patients who’ve joined our dental family over the years. I enjoy getting to know each of them, hearing about their lives and families.
Dentistry is a profession that I truly love; I’m excited, every day, to be at work and spending time with my patients.

Dentistry is a fast changing profession. With advances in every aspect of dental care, it’s important I stay current on the newest procedures, technology, and treatment protocols.
I am involved in dental implant training at the Whitecap Institute. I also take continuing education courses in practice management, Endodontics (root canals), infection control, and many other topics. This ensures my patients receive the most advanced care available.

I grew up in Henderson and have lived here my whole life. My sweetheart and wife, Amy, and I have four children: Allyson, Melissa, Samantha, and Isaac. We also have a new, four-legged addition to our family: a young Chocolate Lab named Duke.
When I’m not working you will find me with my family. We like spending time together, especially enjoy outdoor activities such as camping, hiking, riding ATVs, bicycling, and boating.
My passion in life comes from my beliefs in God and the importance of family. Everything I do revolves around these beliefs. I believe in treating others fairly. People may not always hear what they want to hear, but I will always treat them honestly and compassionately.
