As a teenager missing a couple front teeth, my confidence and self-esteem were greatly improved by the service my dentist and orthodontist were able to provide me. That experience shaped my desire to pursue a career as a dentist. One of the greatest things about being a dentist is being able to improve someone’s smile or oral health.
My goal is to give you the best dental experience I can. In general, people fear the unknown, which is especially true in dentistry. Rest assured knowing I will communicate everything you need to know to feel comfortable and confident with any treatment you receive at Fusion Dental. At the risk of sounding cliché, I truly will treat you like I would a family member. Together we’ll work through the options and create a plan to get you where you’d like to be.
Dentistry is not one-size-fits-all; your oral health is not something to be taken lightly. Whether it be giving someone a big smile or eating that delicious Texas BBQ, our teeth and mouths do so much for us. I hope to be the dentist you place your trust in to deliver the excellent dental care you deserve.

I have a passion for learning and strive to provide the best care I can for my patients by expanding my knowledge base. As a health care provider, I believe it’s an important responsibility to stay up to date with the latest studies, materials, and methods. Currently, I am working through the Spears Education Curriculum, one of the top sources nationally for continuing education in restorative dentistry.
Outside the office
I grew up in northern Utah and moved to Dallas to attend dental school. Texas has started to feel like home for us and we’ve met a lot of great people here. We were very excited for the opportunity to join the Fusion team in Waco. I met my wife Kait in middle school and we just welcomed our first child, our sweet daughter Emrie, in January 2019. We have two very spoiled dogs, Murphy and Rue who expect a couple walks a day. We enjoy being outside, trying out new restaurants, bingeing Netflix and/or hulu, cooling off with ice cream, and recently I’ve become interested in learning to play the piano. We’re having a great time here in Waco- don’t hesitate to say hi if you ever spot me out and about!
