I was raised in a small farming community in southeast Idaho, where I went to school and received my Bachelor of Science degree from BYU-Idaho. I graduated Cum Laude from Temple University School of Dentistry.
I love being one of the dentists in Lakewood – it’s a great avenue for me to use my personal artistic and perfectionist side. The reason I studied dentistry is because I enjoy interacting with other people and working with my hands.
My goal is to provide my patients with the highest care possible and restoring that perfect smile. I love helping to ease nervous patients and help them to understand how gentle dentistry can be.
When I’m not at the dental office, I’m spending time with my wife and four kids. I enjoy being outdoors, camping, fishing, and hunting. I also enjoy playing and watching all sports and just hanging out and barbecuing with friends and family.
