As a general practitioner, I enjoy the long-term personal relationships I have developed with my patients over the years while tending to their individual dental needs. I have been in practice for more than 38 years, and look forward to coming to work every day with a great team of dedicated dental assistants, hygienists, and front office staff. Quite a few of our staff members have been with us for more than a decade, and they truly make our office feel like a family.

Education and Continuing Education

In order to stay current with the latest in dental innovations, I participate in many hours of study in the areas of crowns, root canals, orthodontics, and aesthetic restorations.

Professional Memberships

Outside the Office

Born in Jackson, Michigan, I graduated from Parkside High School where I played football, basketball, and tennis. I lived in Dearborn Heights while attending dental school, then moved to Novi in 1982 where I have lived in the same house for 35 years.

I have been married for 42 years to my college sweetheart, Carol. We have two adult daughters. Sara is a mechanical engineer with Nissan who lives in Novi with her husband and three sons. Kiley lives in Chicago and works as an architect.

When not at work enjoy playing golf and tennis, water skiing in the summer, and snow skiing in the winter. My wife and I like to travel and have been to Japan as well as many European countries.
