I enjoy helping patients by treating their dental needs in all aspects of general dentistry. It is important to keep patients informed and get their input when designing their treatment plans and goals. I make every effort to get to know my patients in order to provide a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere during dental treatment. Continuing education classes are essential to remain up to date on the newest advances in dentistry.
I was awarded the Health Professions Scholarship Program through the United States Navy while in dental school. Following graduation, I was stationed at Parris Island Marine Corps Recruit Depot in South Carolina. I conducted dentistry on Marine recruits and had rotations through specialties such as endodontics and oral surgery. I was than stationed in Okinawa, Japan where I served as the dentist on a humanitarian mission called the PHIBLEX near Angeles City, Philippines and conducted tooth extractions for the local rural underserved population.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my wife, son, daughter, and dog. My hobbies include reading, being outdoors, and traveling. I stay active by playing hockey, softball, golf, and racquetball.
