The orthodontic profession provides me the opportunity to give back to my community and hopefully affect the lives of many in positive ways. Our patients are the best! Each day is so rewarding because of the relationships and interactions I have with patients and their families. I hope to provide each patient with a beautiful smile and a positive outlook on life doesn’t end when they leave my office but will continue with them through all aspects of their lives.
The education I received has given me a strong foundation to build a practice focused on providing excellent patient care. I went to Brigham Young University for my undergraduate degree and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science. While at Brigham Young University I also had the opportunity to play football for the Cougars which offered a unique opportunity to balance the demanding schedule of athletics and still perform at a high academic level. I continued on to Virginia Commonwealth University where I graduated with my Doctorate of Dental Surgery and then completed my Orthodontic Residency at Vanderbilt University.
Staying current with the advancements in orthodontics is extremely important to me. I continue my education through courses and seminars throughout the year so I can provide the highest quality treatments for my patients. I am also involved with numerous local and national organizations such as the American Dental Association, the American Association of Orthodontists, the Colorado Dental Association, and the Metro Denver Dental Society.
I am originally from Virginia Beach, VA, and now live in Littleton with my wife, Leah. We have five beautiful children, Annie (16), Alyse (14), madelyn (12), Kendell (8), Jacob (6), who I love spending time with. Our pizza and movie nights have become a family favorite! I enjoy all outdoor activities including golf, tennis, and I have occasionally coached my girls in soccer.
