Since I arrived in Wenatchee more than 25 years ago, it has been my privilege to provide dental care to my patients and be a part of their lives. It is especially gratifying to see our early pediatric patients grow, mature, and bring their children to our practice. These patient relationships are most rewarding to me. Our patients have become part of our extended family, and I can’t imagine a practice without them.
I began my career as a dentist by graduating from the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Dentistry in 1985 with my Doctorate of Dental Surgery. Since then, I have continued my education in every aspect of contemporary dental treatment in order to provide the latest and best options to our patients.
In addition to my continuing education, I am also active in several professional organizations:
- American Dental Association
- Washington State Dental Association
- North Central District Dental Society
- Spear Study Club
I am originally from St. Louis, Missouri, and have lived in Wenatchee since 1993 after serving three years in the Army as division dental surgeon for the 7th Infantry Division. I have three adult sons and one daughter-in-law.
When I’m not in the office, I enjoy volunteering my time to charitable dental causes. Most recently, I have volunteered at the Lighthouse Dental Clinic. It is rewarding to give those who might not otherwise have access to care.
