I knew I wanted to be a dentist by the time I was 4 years old.
I had a great dentist who noticed my curiosity about his profession on that first visit and could see perhaps I would one day be a dentist like him. Looking back he had excellent technical skills, was well educated, caring and friendly. Sitting in his meticulously sterile office he became my professional role model. When I grew up, I received my degree from Creighton University Dental School in Omaha, Nebraska, my hometown.
Today, I have a dental practice located in the heart of Omaha, Nebraska.
I practice general dentistry and enjoy all aspects of the profession; treating the entire mouth and all its conditions as it relates to the body as a whole. I am passionate about working with entire families from grandchildren to grandparents. Each patient is an individual with unique physical and emotional needs. I have a special place in my heart for fearful patients and pride myself on putting them at ease.
My professional affiliations keep me on top of current trends and skills. I am active in local, state and national dental societies. I am a member of:
I attend regular seminars in a well-respected study club. And, I always exceed the required number of hours of continuing education.
My hobbies allow me to indulge my creative side. I enjoy playing and singing music, creating artwork, dental photography, gardening and church involvement. During the winter months, I visit schools with a show that teaches children about dentistry using magic, puppets and music.
Just as I strive to be a good provider for my dental family of patients, I strive to be a great family man for my wife and three children.
