I grew up in Alma as well as in this practice, and to be practicing dentistry here is a dream come true. I look forward to providing high-quality, comprehensive dental care while building trusted relationships with our patients from Gratiot County and the surrounding communities. I enjoy working with children and adults to achieve their optimal oral health.
EDUCATION AND CONTINUING EDUCATION
I am devoted to keeping up to date with the most recent advances in clinical dentistry as well as personal protective equipment and infection control. My formal dental education gave me a great foundation of knowledge and training to build on.
- Bachelor of Science in biomedical science – Central Michigan University

- Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency – Wichita State University, Wichita, Kansas
Throughout the year I attend numerous continuing education classes with Spear Education, F.O.R.C.E. Orthodontics, the Michigan Dental Association, and American Dental Association.

I enjoy spending time with my wife, Rebecca, as we anxiously await the birth of our son this July. We like going for walks in the community, working out, spending time on the water, and cheering for Detroit and MSU sports teams.
