I feel very grateful to work in a field that wonderfully balances science, technology, education, and interper- sonal communication. Educating my patients is important to me, so that they may make the best choice possible for their oral health. l'm committed to continuing my education so that I can be fully equipped with the latest knowledge and techniques to best help my patients achieve their goals. Over my career, it has been fulfilling to help my patients achieve a beautiful and healthy smile.
I completed my undergraduate studies at Brigham Young University, graduating with a degree in psychology. As a native of Las Vegas, I returned "home" to pursue my doctorate in dentistry at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Following dental school, my family headed south to Georgia Regents University where I completed my specialty residency in Periodontics. While in Georgia, I had the great privilege to work with world renowned faculty to address complex interdisciplinary esthetic treatment.

While away from the office, I enjoy spending time with my wife Susie and our two daughters, Claire and Noelle. I love music, and have played the piano since childhood. I love virtually every sport, but have a particular affinity for volleyball.
