I love that dentistry combines my passion for healthcare and hands-on work. I consider myself to be a detail-oriented person and take pride in my work as a dentist. I believe that oral health is an important part of a person’s overall health, and promoting and restoring my patients’ oral health is my utmost priority. I am committed to providing my patients with excellent care through education, diagnosis, and treatment planning in an unbiased and ethical manor.
Receiving dental care can be stressful for many patients, and it is important to me that patients feel comfortable and cared for. I approach my patients in a calm and gentle manor and will do everything I can to help my patients feel relaxed during their visit. I love interacting with and building relationships with my patients, and I believe the most rewarding part of dentistry is restoring someone’s confidence in their smile.

Outside the Office
I was born in St. Louis, Missouri, but my family moved to Texas shortly after I was born. I grew up in Flower Mound and received my undergraduate degree from Texas A&M University where I met my beautiful wife, Kelly, in biology class my freshman year. We currently live in Temple with our golden retriever and black lab, Brody & Tucker. We love hiking & exploring the outdoors with our dogs, trying new restaurants, playing board games, and watching movies. We also love keeping up with Texas A&M football—Gig ‘em Aggies! Some of my other hobbies include woodworking, roasting coffee beans, and hunting.
