I am an alumni of the University of Southern California dental school. I moved to Castle Rock in 1994 with my wife, Lisa, to be near her family. We’ve really enjoyed raising our children here over the last 24 years and being a part of this incredible community! My passion is to help people feel good about themselves and their smiles and overall oral health and hygiene.
Getting into dentistry
I’ve always been interested in science and medicine, but when I had an opportunity to work in a dental lab while I was in college, I knew that was the professional path I wanted to take. I saw how attention to detail to create top-quality dental work could benefit people. This experience helped me to form my belief that exceptional dentistry can so completely affect a person’s overall health, that it can positively change a person’s life, attitude and total well-being.
I became part of a group of dentists dedicated to helping each other use Invisalign as effectively as possible. Invisalign is a clear, removable method of straightening teeth without wires and brackets.
I received an award for being in the top 10 percent of doctors in this group and I feel blessed to be able to learn from the best in dentistry. I am also proud to have earned the extraordinary distinction of achieving Elite Top 1 Percent Invisalign providers worldwide.
What I’m most excited about for my patients right now are the new advances with Invisalign. The benefits it offers to improve unhealthy bites is changing the lives of many of my patients.
A proud parent
Spending time with my family in our beautiful Colorado mountains is definitely my go-to for fun. Lisa and I are proud of our four children — Ryan, 22; Lauren, 19; Joshua, 18; and Rachel, 16. We enjoy camping, hiking, exploring the backcountry on motorcycles, and skiing those powder days every chance we get.
For nearly a decade, I’ve been debate coach for my kids’ teams, and am thrilled that my daughters were invited this year to be a part of a team that travels the world and represents America. I’ve enjoyed mentoring my youngest son in Boy Scouts and am proud to say he’s finishing up his Eagle Scout project soon. I’m also looking forward to further exploring the East Coast when I visit my eldest son who is pursuing his MD/PhD at John’s Hopkins University.
I have found that “fail forward” has been central to finding balance for me. This means that we shouldn’t be afraid to try new things or to make mistakes. It’s often through our mistakes that we learn and grow into a better version of ourselves.
