I love being a dentist. I love having the opportunity to work with patients of all ages. One of my favorite things about my job is having the chance to see an anxious patient begin to relax as I explain the step-by-step process of what we will be doing and hearing how great of an experience they had when we are done. Nothing is more exciting than striving to perform dentistry in the most comfortable atmosphere possible and seeing lives change on a daily basis.
I also love connecting with new people and building lasting relationships. It is an honor to talk with patients about their oral health and explain how and why dental disease affects both their oral and overall health. Many patients come in with problems they have never had addressed. Being able to diagnose and treat these issues to improve quality of life is one of the most rewarding things I have had the opportunity to do.
I am here to serve the people of Waco, TX. I promise to work tirelessly to get people out of pain and improve on their beautiful smiles. The smile is such an integral part of how we see ourselves. Being able to change one’s smile drastically can truly change their life.
Education and Continuing Education
- Bachelor of Science in Biology, Baylor University
- Doctorate of Dental Surgery, The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio
I have remained dedicated to continuing education and being a life long learner. I have far surpassed the educational hours required by the state so that I can better serve my patients and continue to grow my skillset. I have spent time studying advanced techniques in oral surgery, implant placement and restoration, oral pathology, and endodontics.
Outside the Office
I grew up in Joplin, Missouri but decided to move to Waco, Texas in 2009 to attend Baylor University. I instantly fell in love with the city and it soon became my home.
My wife, Kristen, and I had our first child, Adelyn, in July 2018 and we believe there is no better place to raise our family than Waco, TX. We are also the proud owners of a Golden Retriever, Baylor, and enjoy taking her on walks through downtown. We are passionate fans of any Baylor sports team and frequently attend football and basketball games- Sic ‘Em Bears! We also love trying new restaurants around town and never miss the opportunity to try something new. My other hobbies include any electronics and working with my hands.
