At every visit, my commitment is to heal your pain, improve your smile, and maintain the health of your beautiful teeth. My life’s work has lead me here to you!
I was born in Stockton, California but truly hail from Prescott, Arizona where my family settled in 1964. After graduating from Prescott High School having played football and enjoying most outdoor sports, I went onto Arizona State University. I graduated there in 1978 with a pre-dental major. During my tenure at ASU, my younger sister and parents moved to Ballard. So as I contemplated dental school admissions, I decided that the Pacific Northwest would suit my style just fine. Graduating from the University of Washington in 1982 with honors, I invested further in my skills by accepting an Internship with the US Air Force. This one year with the Air Force offered me unbelievable exposure and technique experience in every dental discipline – oral surgery, endodontics, restorative, etc. – refining my
skills and preparing me to offer broad and sophisticated dental care upon opening my practice. Following this fantastic first-year USAF experience, I went on to serve in the military as a Captain at Hanscom AFB in Massachusetts.
Returning home to the Seattle area, I have had the honor of serving you in Kirkland since September 1985. Married with three children, I like to relax on the golf course, ski slopes, or coaching baseball. If you’ve been a part of our dental family longer than three years, you know that we moved a stones-throw-away from our original location to offer you a nicer office environment with large windows, sunlight, and top-of-the-line dental technology for your comfort. I love what I do! The best reward for me? When patients love their smiles!
