Professional Info:
I have had the pleasure of practicing dentistry for 30 years. I've had many experiences with many people and have been blessed to have the knowledge and skill to help people with their oral and overall general health.  Transforming smiles and bolstering self-esteem in patients is one of the most rewarding aspects of our profession.  Without a caring, knowledgeable and organized team surrounding me, I would not be successful in my professional endeavors. I am very grateful for each and every one of them! 

Personal Information:
I grew up in Springfield, Ohio but have lived and practiced dentistry in the central Ohio area. I have two children, which keep me quite active outside of the office.I try to stay physically fit and healthy through exercise and work around the house and yard.  The Buckeyes, Bengals, and Blue Jackets keep me occupied as well as most sports stories. 

Professional statement:
Dentistry has been very rewarding.  I have learned much about myself, much about relationship building with patients and team.  I look forward to establishing many more wonderful relationships with new people.
