I enjoy having the ability, as a dentist, to change people’s lives for the better. It’s exciting to help people on a daily basis, whether it is for health or cosmetic reasons. I always knew I wanted to work in the healthcare field, and dentistry has turned out to be rewarding in so many more ways than I ever thought. Working with so many different people helps me grow, both personally and professionally, and learn how to interact with different personalities in order to ensure they have a satisfying, positive dental experience.

Outside the Office
When I’m not in the office, I love spending time with my wife, our four children, and our dog, Nash. Growing up in the Vancouver, WA area, I developed a deep appreciation for the outdoors. Some of my favorite activities include fishing, hiking, mountain biking, and hunting. My wife and I are dedicated to our family, our faith, and serving others. In addition to being active in our church, we participate in yearly dental mission trips. Most recently, we traveled to the Dominican Republic and India in order to prove much-needed care to those with little or no access to dentistry.
