I feel that orthodontics is the greatest profession. Every morning I come into my office excited to have both the opportunity to meet new, fascinating people, and to nurture my existing relationships with my patients. Every patient and family that comes to my practice is truly a new chance to make a positive impact and build a wonderful friendship. That is what life should be about, I believe.
I knew I wanted to be an orthodontist when I was in middle school and going through braces myself. The incredible experience I had and the difference that orthodontics made in my life made me want to share that with others. I know how having a healthy, beautiful smile can change the world for a patient, and lead to a fuller, happier life. Being an orthodontist allows me to make that happen for others.
I am a staunch advocate of continuing education, no matter what one’s professional field. As an orthodontist, however, I know it is essential that I stay current on the latest technologies and treatment techniques in order to provide my patients with the most advanced options available. Therefore, I am an active attendee and participant in orthodontic lectures, seminars, and conferences throughout the year. My orthodontic team often attends with me because they too believe in furthering their knowledge in order to serve our patients well.
I grew up in the middle Georgia area and call Warner Robins my home. My wife Cheryl, who was a childhood friend, and I have two children, Trey and Amy. Our family loves being together and enjoys fishing and hunting. We are also very active in our church and take our commitment to our community very seriously.
