Creating Happiness with Healthy Smiles
I’m excited to bring world-class dental care to the Huntington area. Our practice strives to provide leading-edge, caring, and painless care that improves lives and smiles for our community.
I’ve been practicing dentistry since 2009. My cousin is an oral surgeon; after he removed my wisdom teeth, he let me job-shadow him for a few days. Seeing the difference he made in his patients’ lives, and the connections he developed with those in his care, kindled my interest in the field.
I enjoy learning about my patients. Their families, lives, and pastimes are all important to me. I want to get to know each person, and build a lasting relationship based on trust, compassion, and open communication. I want to help each person develop their healthiest, happiest smile.
I’m very detailed-oriented. As a dentist, I’m attentive to a person’s unique needs and I listen actively to their goals and concerns. It’s my desire to create sound, functional, beautiful teeth and smiles.

My father was in the U.S. Army, so our family moved every two to three years while I was growing up. I lived overseas, in The Netherlands, Panama, and Germany. In the U.S., I’ve lived in Virginia, Kansas, California, and New York.
My wife Vanessa and I met at college. She grew up in South Whitley. We’re excited to return and raise our family close to her home and family. We have three young children: Easton, Aly, and Liam. When I’m not working, I love spending time with my family. I also enjoy volunteering as a Scoutmaster for the Boy Scouts of America.
