What makes dentistry exciting for me is incorporating the latest technologies into daily practice. Every day I am looking for ways to make beautiful, natural looking dentistry more comfortable for our customers. Hearing people say “that was much easier than I anticipated” and “that’s so beautiful” are the compliments that keep me striving for continuous improvement.

I enjoy skiing, hockey, golf, yoga, gardening, and photography.

Happily married since 1991 and father of three school-aged girls. I have a large extended family that I am very close to. It gives me the opportunity to hear about the needs and concerns of all ages.
