I feel it a great responsibility and honor to care for my patients. I hold the trust patients give us with great respect and feel an absolute obligation to keep it. Integrity is something I value above all else.
Interacting with so many people helps me to stay humble, be grateful for all I have, and broadens my perspective greatly. I love caring for my patients, and giving them the incredible level of customer service they deserve. It gives me great satisfaction to see my patients happy.
Education and Continuing Education
Originally from Idaho, I completed dental school at the Ohio State University, earning my Doctorate of Dental Surgery. I am also a graduate of the Kois Center’s “Advancing Dentistry through Science”, an intense program giving dentists the knowledge they need to be current and practice at an advanced level. Patients can know they are receiving high-quality care directed by the most current science.
Professional affiliations with the Washington State Dental Association and King County Dental Association also provide opportunities for continuing education which I take advantage of throughout the year.
Outside the Office
I currently reside in Renton with my wife Linda and our five boys: Spencer, Kaleb, Brycen, Grant, and Emmett, who range in age from six months to 16 years of age. They keep us busy with scouting and basketball, but we do love taking family vacations when we have the time.
Serving others is a priority, even when I’m not in the office. I am active in my church and am the in-house dentist for Vine Maple Place, a facility that educates and helps homeless, single parents become self-reliant.
