Hello! I am deeply passionate about educating patients and giving them the knowledge they need to empower them to change their habits and prevent future dental problems. It is exciting to see my patients improve their health and gain the comfortable, beautiful smile they deserve. It is truly a pleasure to help patients achieve a dazzling smile they can be proud of.
Seeing a patient’s self-esteem and confidence boosted gives me the highest feeling of satisfaction. Working with such a diverse and multi-generational group of people has given me an appreciation for the joy and energy that people of all ages and backgrounds live their lives with.
I am thankful that my daily work brings me great joy and personal satisfaction. I truly love my job and couldn’t imagine doing anything else. Dentistry gives me the opportunity to build relationships with diverse people, to educate patients how to achieve and maintain optimal dental health, and to create comfortable and beautiful smiles that last a lifetime. I look forward to a long and happy career here in the Whitmore Lake community.
Education and Continuing Education
- Undergraduate degree – Western Michigan University
- Doctorate of Dental Surgery – University of Michigan
Following dental school, I attended an additional year of advanced education in general dentistry at the University of Michigan. This program focused on cosmetics and comprehensive dental treatment, which enables me to complete most of my patients’ treatment within our office, and thus save my patients the time and money of referrals.
I love staying on the cutting edge of technology. I complete more than 30 hours a year of continuing education, and insist on providing my patients with the highest quality of care available.

Outside the Office
My wife Amy and I have three wonderful children: Ethan, Caleb, and Genevieve. I love playing with my kids and seeing their carefree, joyful smiles. When I have free time, I enjoy playing golf and tennis, and swimming. I have always tried to be generous with others, since I recognize the multitude of undeserved blessings that I have received in my life.
