Live Life Smiling
Every day, I have a chance to make people smile, while creating their new smile; what could be better? I love being an orthodontist. I know how a healthy and beautiful smile changes the way people feel about themselves and how they interact with those around them. On a daily basis, I get to improve people’s lives by helping them develop a confident, incredible smile — one that will last a lifetime.
My motto and practice philosophy are based on the belief that everyone should live life smiling. As an orthodontist, I see that happen every day.

In the Office
As a small practice, we have been able to create a team that is dedicated, committed, and a fun to be around! We have been fortunate to have women who give 100% everyday, no matter what is going on in their personal lives. They are genuine, caring, and truly serve everyone that comes into our doors! I am honored to work with each of these women, and they challenge me to be a better person every day.
I was lucky enough to marry my high school sweetheart, Jessica. She works here in the practice. We have three amazing children: Tucker, Jersey, and Cooper. When I’m not in the office, chances are I am with my family, especially enjoying time outdoors. If I’m not with them, I can likely be found on the golf course, jet skiing, or camping.
I also enjoy volunteering at our church, where I am able to make healthy, real relationships. I value relationships that encourage and support my role as husband, father, leader, and businessman. I am lucky to have men that I get to surround myself with who challenge me in these areas, and with whom I can golf, vacation, or spend time at the lake.
I find great joy in seeing my community thrive. I am active in providing a home for foster care, volunteering at my church, and organizing and participating in fundraising events for non-profits that we support. Some of these include Big Brothers Big Sisters, Redeem United, Arc Park, Care Portal, and local schools. I believe that we are to be generous with the resources we have been given.
