Orthodontics is a tremendously rewarding profession. I enjoy it so much, sometimes I forget I am working! On a more serious note, I truly enjoy improving my patients’ self-esteem while giving them a beautiful smile. There is so much to learn while interacting with patients, from finding out about their interests and hobbies to what’s going on at school or work. I consider myself very fortunate to be a part of their lives.
I attended Loma Linda University, graduating with my Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 2002. After graduating from dental school I immediately went into the Orthodontic Specialty program at Loma Linda University and graduated in 2004. As a member of numerous local study clubs and professional organizations, I continue my education through courses and seminars to provide my patients with the newest and best possible care.
In the Office
My team and I hope to have created an environment where every patient is comfortable and well-informed about their care. My staff has years of experience providing high-quality, patient-focused care, but we love to have fun, too! We have great contests that encourage and reward good hygiene with awesome prizes!
As part of my Orthodontic Specialty training I conducted research that utilized 3D scanning technology and it’s uses in Orthodontics. Shortly after graduating I invented technology and techniques that utilize 3D Scanning, Software and 3D printing to make Orthodontic treatment faster, more comfortable and more affordable. This company is called Orchestrate 3D and is featured in multiple publications. Orchestrate 3D is also used by other Orthodontists in private practice all over the world and in multiple universities. I am so proud that Orchestrate3D has improved the quality of orthodontic treatment for many thousands of patients all over the world.
I have lived in the Inland Empire area my entire life and am proud to serve the community where I work and live. My wife, Janell, and I have identical twin daughters, Katelyn and Kristen, and we love spending quality family time together. I also enjoy the great outdoors, cycling and golf.
