Providing high quality patient care is my professional focus, and I am proud to be a part of The Reno Dentist to achieve this goal. I am proud to be a part of a well-rounded, modern practice were exceptional quality of work is anticipated, patient safety is a priority, and enriching lives is the goal of our team members.
My interest in dentistry began in high school when I was given the opportunity to shadow a local dentist who was the leader of my school service club. I watched as he alleviated pain, inspired confidence, and partnered with his patients to achieve oral health. I have always enjoyed the concept of teamwork, and I want to bring everyone on my team to work towards health, happiness, and confidence.
After graduating from Brigham Young University, I moved on to dental school at the University of the Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry in San Francisco. When I completed school, I began my active duty service with the U.S. Army and moved to Fort Drum, New York, where I had the privilege of providing oral healthcare to military servicemembers. During my service I was mentored by dental specialists including the Oral Surgeon, Prosthodontist, and Periodontist, which enabled me to expand my knowledge and competency of specialized dental procedures and treatments. I am proficient in restorative dentistry, implant dentistry, oral surgery, CAD/CAM dentistry, fixed prosthodontics and bonding techniques.
Finally, I decided to call the Reno area home. My wife and two boys love the area and we continue to enjoy the outdoor activities that the area offers including kiteboarding, snowboarding, swimming in the lakes, and riding bikes.
