Once I completed my undergraduate education at Arizona State University, I was honored to be admitted to the University of Iowa for Dental School. After dental school, I was accepted to train to become a Pediatric Dentist at the distinguished Temple University/Episcopal Children’s Hospital in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. During this training, I was able to learn how to care for children and their dental needs from excellent professors. I was fortunate enough to meet many different children and their families, each one unique and special, and I learned something new from each one. I continue to be blessed to meet new children each day, and really enjoy finding ways to help all of them.
My wife Shauna and I have two wonderful boys – Joshua and Zachary. These two really keep us on our toes and bring smiles to our faces each day. Shauna and I love the outdoors and frequently our family activities involve spending time in State and National Parks in the Western Region. We enjoy hiking, horseback riding, snow shoeing, cross country skiing, and snowmobiling. I am also involved in several volunteer organizations to help children. Thanks for allowing me the opportunity to introduce myself to you, and I hope to meet you in person sometime soon at one of our offices!
