I’ve always loved kids and had given a lot of thought to being a pediatrician or pediatric cardiologist. And then it hit me! Orthodontics was a chance to work with kids and families in a life-changing manner under more positive circumstances. Man, was I right! After graduating from Texas Christian University, I attended Baylor University College of Dentistry for my Doctorate of Dental Surgery, and completed my orthodontic residency and master’s degree in orthodontics at Northwestern University.
Over the nearly 30 years I’ve practiced orthodontics, new technologies have emerged and made it easier to achieve high-quality results more efficiently. This, along with high-tech imaging systems such as digital scanners and cone-beam CT scans, have enabled me to develop more accurate diagnoses and treatment plans. The results of my ongoing clinical education are best seen in my patients’ smiles!
I grew up right here in Hinsdale and still live five blocks from my childhood home. I am married to Ellen, the sweetest woman to ever walk this earth. No lie; ask anyone who really knows her! She really cares about people and is a wonderful mom to our three children. We also have a dog named Toby!
Outside the office, I can be found doing work with charitable organizations, where my life has been greatly enriched. I believe that getting outside of your comfort zone and trying to make things better for other human beings will lead to a blessed and fulfilled life.
