Every day, I meet remarkable people and start building connections with them; every day, I see established patients and spend time hearing of their latest successes and sharing in their lives; and every day, I see people move from feeling self-conscious and uncertain because of their crooked teeth, to gaining confidence as their smile becomes more attractive.
Growing up, I knew I wanted to work in healthcare and, by 8th grade, I knew I wanted to be an orthodontist.
Since finishing my Master of Science and certificate of orthodontics in 1988, I have had the honor of meeting and getting to know some of the most remarkable people. Each came to me with the desire to change their life, each wanted a healthier, more becoming smile, and each was ready to make the commitment of keeping up with their home care during treatment.
It has been an incredible experience to become friends with these people as we partnered to achieve their best smile. I look forward to doing the same with you!
Like all healthcare fields, orthodontics is constantly evolving and improving. Staying current on the latest technological innovations, as well as with revolutionary materials and techniques, is critical for my patients’ health and comfort.
Each year, I complete many hours of postgraduate education to learn about new approaches, research, and procedures. I also teach orthodontic residents at the Texas A&M Health Science Center Baylor College of Dentistry and am active in the Roth Williams Study Club, Texas Orthodontic Study Club, and Invisalign® and Damon™ trainings.
I lived here in Wichita Falls until 7th grade, graduated from high school in Plano, and returned to Wichita Falls after completing my orthodontic training. My wife of more than 30 years, Terry, and I have been happy to raise our three daughters — Lauren, Ashley, and Alycia — here.
When I’m not seeing patients or studying a new orthodontic technique, I can be found participating in church activities, out fishing, or pursuing a photography project.
