What motivates you?

“My family is a big motivator. Everything I do and work for is for them, to make sure they have a good life.  Dental school was a big task and without them as a motivation I’m not sure how well I would have done. I also want to be a great dentist and am motivated primarily by myself to make sure I am up on technology on all treatment options. I’m also extremely motivated by my faith.”

What is your favorite thing about being a dentist?

“The social aspect of dentistry is probably one of my favorite things.  I like getting to know people and also making some sort of difference in their lives.  I also really enjoy different aspects of dentistry as far as treatment goes.  I really enjoy placing implants and cosmetic treatments.”

How would you describe yourself in 5 words or less?

“Positive, laid-back, motivated, hard-working, family man.”

Do you have any pets? If so, what kind?

“Black Lab and Maltese (kids’ dog).”
