Every day I come to work excited about the variety in my job, both with the procedures I perform and the personalities of people I meet. I love changing my patients’ quality of life for the better, whether they need emergency dental work or want a cosmetic change to their smile. I have found a passion for cosmetic cases that can change a person’s self-esteem, as well as their smile. The ability to have this level of variety is what I enjoy most about being a part of the dental profession.

When it comes to continuing education, I tend to focus on things that interest me as well as help my patients.

I feel it is my responsibility to be well versed in all the different techniques involved in rebuilding and restoring my patients’ mouths and smiles.

Outside the office
I grew up in Clinton Township, MI and after a spell in Chicago I moved back to southeastern Michigan. I am very happily married to my wife, Elyse. We have been married since 2010 and live with two dogs named Scotch and Winny. Our families are both from southeastern Michigan and we are very happy to be back!
When I am not at work, you can find me with my family, walking our dogs around the city, watching sporting events like Michigan football and Red Wings hockey, and enjoying community events. We also have a cottage south of Traverse City on Lake Michigan where we love to vacation.
