My work is my passion. Helping people is my goal.


I am eager to gain my patients’ trust by treating them with the same care and compassion that I would want for my own family. My patients deserve to have all their treatment choices explained thoroughly, and through this counseling, I am able to help them regain their dental health in a non-threatening, comfortable way.



I attended the University of Missouri At Kansas City Dental School, graduating with my Doctorate of Dental Surgery. That was almost 30 years ago, and since then, I have continually updated my education so I can bring the best service to my patients. I have attended the Dawson Institute for Advanced Dental Education and have studied dental implants intensely through the University of Frankfurt in Germany. I have studied with some of dentistry’s best teachers to improve my skills in all aspects of dentistry, including cosmetic treatments, from the simplest to the most complex cases. I am also working on my Mastership in the AGD.

Outside the Office

I was born in Bentonville, AR, and have lived in Fayetteville since 1984. My wife Tricia and I have two wonderful children, Aaron and Ellen, and a dog named Pepe. My leisure time is spent with my family or outdoors where I enjoy fishing, canoeing, hiking, and photography. I also enjoy painting watercolors.
