I grew up on the eastern plains of Colorado on my family’s dairy farm where I spent my summers in the tractor or helping take care of the cows. It was here that I learned the value of hard work, being proud of what you do, and always doing your best. I knew I wanted to be a dentist so I attended Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado and graduated in 2005 with a degree in Biology and minors in both Anatomy and Spanish. After college I attended the University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine and earned my Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 2009.
After dental school I married my girlfriend, Jolene. My wife and I then moved to Okanogan, Washington and worked with the underserved.. We would spend our weekends hiking, biking, fishing, camping and enjoying the Pacific Northwest. After returning to Colorado we felt drawn back to Washington. In 2016 Jolene and I returned to Spokane, Washington, but this time we came with our daughter, Betty. We are excited to discover new adventures and becomes a part of this wonderful community.
I’m enjoy being a dentist and sharing my knowledge of dentistry with my patients. I do this by taking continuing education courses to stay up-to-date on the latest dental research. I believe that knowledge is key to helping my patients protect their teeth and improve, not only their oral health, but their quality of life. I like to know each patient I meet and how I can help them reach their goals. I want each patient to feel comfortable at the dentist and I use humor to help each person be relaxed and make their dental appointment a little less stressful. If there is anything I can do to make your dental experience more enjoyable I encourage you to let me know.
