Working in the orthodontic field is less of a job and more of a passion. I love knowing the difference I can make in a person's life by improving the look and function of their smile. I consider the increase in self-esteem and confidence in my patients to be true success.
I graduated from Montana State University with my Bachelor of Science degree before continuing on to the University of Washington where I earned my Doctorate of Dental Science. I went on to Oregon Health Science University where I received my Master's of Science and completed my Specialty Residency in Orthodontics.
I attend numerous continuing education conferences and seminars throughout the year to stay up-to-date on the latest advancements in orthodontics. I also stay involved in the greater orthodontic community and am an active member of the American Association of Orthodontists, the Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontists, the American Dental Association, and the Washington State Dental Association.
I am a native of Kalispell, MT and currently live in Seattle with my wife, our two sons, and two Cavalier Spaniels, Rizzo and Bozley. When I'm not in the office or spending time with my family, I enjoy playing the piano, soccer, traveling, art, and skiing. I even used to do inverted aerials on my skis!
