I love working with people: my patients, their families, my incredible team, our community, and now my oldest son, Dr. Jarred. My patients are important to me as people. I love getting to know them on a personal level, learning about their hobbies, interests, and passions. If my patient is young, I get to watch them grow up and cheer their accomplishments. If they’re older, we connect in a different way and I celebrate who they are in our community.
I’ve been practicing since 1988 and am honored to now be creating beautiful smiles for the children of some of my first patients!
I grew up in Winchester, TN, and now call Lebanon my home. I was lucky to marry my high school sweetheart, Katie, back in 1981. We met in a band when in HS and have been together ever since. We have two sons: Jarred, our oldest, is an orthodontist and has joined me in the practice. Our youngest son, Josh, lives and works in Nashville; we enjoy cycling and spending time together.
