General and Cosmetic Dentist, Involved with Educating Children in our Community on Oral Health
I am passionate about my patients. My practice philosophy is based on the personal relationships that I am able to build with each patient individually, and this is what makes me excited about coming to work each day. Few professions allow the opportunity to work closely with so many people and establish a deep trust with them. I have the chance to meet so many unique people, which gives me a broader outlook on life and allows me to hear some amazing stories that I would have never otherwise had the pleasure to enjoy.
Education and Continuing Education
- Bachelor of Science in Biology – Heidelberg University
- Doctorate of Dental Surgery – The Ohio State University
Staying current on dental materials and techniques ensures that my patients receive the best care available, and I strive to incorporate these into my practice on a daily basis. I have completed a wide range of continuing education courses covering many aspects of the dental field. These include everything from anterior aesthetics and endodontic techniques to learning how to use the newest dental CAD technology.
The team I get to work with every day is phenomenal. Through their dental knowledge, ability to explain complex dental issues to patients in a way they can understand, and their caring chairside manner, each person makes the team as a whole stronger.
Outside the Office
I grew up in Perrysburg, a suburb of Toledo, and currently reside in Upper Arlington with my wife, Kelly and daughter, Emmy. When I’m not in the office I can be found playing golf and volleyball.
Community involvement gives me the chance to give back to the people who have chosen our office for their dental needs. I participate in Give Kids a Smile and have coached local youth basketball.
