When I set out to be an orthodontist, I had one goal: to exceed my patients’ expectations. To do this, I have always felt the patients and doctors have to work as a team. “Teamwork Creates Winning Smiles” has always been my motto, and I believe in the team philosophy so much that my whole office is decorated in autographed sports memorabilia. Over the last 20 years I have had the privilege of treating more than 10,000 patients and giving them the smile they have always dreamed about.
Orthodontics allows me to change the way a person feels about themselves. This profession is not only about creating healthy teeth and gorgeous smiles; it is also about giving people the confidence to do things that they may have never done before. It’s not only about changing appearances, but changing lives. I look forward to meeting with you and your family.

In order to give my patients the ultimate care, I am continually learning and staying on top of the newest and best orthodontic techniques. By attending numerous seminars, including the Damon Forum and AAO National Orthodontic meetings, I am able to give my patients the most efficient treatment and state-of-the-art care they deserve.
Technology is always changing, and orthodontics is no different. My goal is to provide my patients with the best and newest techniques to give them a smile they love in the shortest amount of time possible. I also continue to share knowledge with my dental peers by lecturing at numerous dental study groups.
Outside the Office
Family is extremely important to me and I have been blessed with a wonderful family. I have been married to my beautiful wife Elizabeth for 25 years and have enjoyed every minute of our time together. We have two children, Brianne and Tyler. Brianne is presently in college and wants to follow in my footsteps to become an orthodontist. Tyler is my athlete and plays hockey and lacrosse at a very competitive level. We also have a golden retriever named Macie.
I am an avid golfer and am always looking for a game. Just don't ask me what my handicap is! I also love to fish and boat. This year I really got into fly fishing for salmon. I love to travel and truly enjoy the great outdoors!
