I absolutely love being an orthodontist! Aside from all the technical aspects of my profession, I love that my job gives me a unique opportunity to form meaningful relationships with families in my community.
As much as I feel like I get to influence lives by creating beautiful smiles, I am also very much impacted by my patients every day. Spending time with each patient working together toward a beautiful smile is always a rewarding experience for me.
I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish from Harding University, where I played tennis as an Intercollegiate Tennis Association Scholar. Then, I attended the Texas A&M University of Baylor College of Dentistry and graduated with a Doctor of Dental Surgery.
Finally, I graduated as valedictorian from Saint Louis University with a Certificate of Orthodontics and Master of Science in Orthodontics.
When I’m not at work, there’s nothing I’d rather be doing than spending time with my beautiful and wonderful wife, Kayli, and our children. We also have a golden retriever named Sammy, who keeps life fun and energetic.
I love hunting and fishing, and almost anything else in the great outdoors, like snow skiing, backpacking, kayaking. In college, I was an NCAA Division II tennis player, and I still play when possible. I stay active in church, teaching and serving in whatever roles I can.
