I was born in Michigan but spent most of my life in Arizona. My hobbies include watching movies, weight training, and coaching my son’s soccer, basketball, and baseball teams. I am married to my lovely wife Sara, and we have four beautiful children, ages 15 months to 7 years. I met Sara while attending Apollo High School in Glendale, where she was a cheerleader and I played football. We have been married since 2000. My family is the most important part of my life, and I want you to know that being my patient means being treated like family. My philosophy is simple and timeless: Treat others the way you want to be treated.
I am the first college graduate in my family, and I am proud to say that I put myself through college, graduating from Arizona State University in 1999 with a B.S. in biology. I then was fortunate enough to attend the prestigious University of California San Francisco Dental School, graduating in 2003. I knew from an early age that I wanted to be a dentist. I had numerous dental problems as a child and had a great dentist who sparked my interest in the field. I enjoy mastering all aspects of dentistry today and take great pride in my work.
My practice here in Verrado allows me the opportunity to produce high-quality dentistry with a truly personal touch. This is a family-owned dental office, and I plan to continue practicing for at least another 25 years. This provides you with a unique chance to be seen by the same dentist for years to come and develop a great relationship. This is unlike today’s trends, wherein large corporations own practices, and patients are seen by different dentists each time they come in.
I also put some extra touches into the office to make my patients more comfortable. They can watch movies while receiving treatment in our massaging chairs. A game room makes kids feel special, too. I want to make myself approachable, so patients can ask questions and be directly involved in their dental health. I am dedicated to raising my family in Verrado, and I hope we can grow together as a community. See you soon!
