I am very blessed to work in a field that helps me to make a positive difference in the lives of the people I meet. I truly enjoy going to work every day and meeting so many different, unique people who all have something special to share. It is wonderful to make patients feel like they’re a part of our family and see the joy on their faces when they see their new smile.
I am happy to rock your new smile and we’re going to have a lot of fun along the way!
My first priority is my family. I am blessed to have my wife Karen by my side in raising our three wonderful kids, Alyssa, Kylie and Bo. I love spending time with them.
I am an active community member of New Heights of NW Arkansas and also participate in Lifesource, Bethany Christian Services, and Smile for a Lifetime. I am also involved in our local church, singing in the praise band.
