My personal goal as a dentist is to provide the highest quality of dental care in a comfortable and caring way. I value patient education and make every effort to help patients understand their treatment options. I appreciate the trust our patients show in myself and in our team as we work together to provide every patient with the best care for their smile.
I enjoy playing golf and have recently taken up the challenge of sharp-shooting at a local shooting range. I enjoy working in our yard, taking rides on my motorcycle, and spending time with my family. My wife Naomi and I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to raise our family in such a beautiful place as the Willammette Valley! Our four children- Abigail, Breanna Joy, Tyler, and Kelsie Mae- keep our lives full of adventure and fun. We enjoy camping, biking, trips to the coast, family movie/game nights, and cheering each other on in our various sports and musical activities.

Continuing Education is an important part of dentistry, and is something that I am always involved in. I enjoy attending a variety of continuing education courses, and I often attend the Oregon Dental Conference held in Portland. I completed a two year mentorship with Dr. Gordon Christiansen at the Scottsdale Center for Dentistry in Arizona. I am actively engaged in continuing education through Lane County Dental Society, and am committed to keeping up to date on latest treatment options and best practice procedures in the field.
