I’ve wanted to become a dentist since the eighth grade. I remember wanting to help people and work with my hands. I enjoy talking with people and have always noticed a beautiful smile. Today, practicing dentistry since 1990, I have created many beautiful smiles and changed many lives. When you are embarrassed to smile, it changes your personality and how people perceive you. Attending advanced courses in dentistry and using modern equipment allows me to achieve incredible results. I believe dentistry is never fully learned and I am on a life-long journey of constantly bettering treatment for my patients. I have been selected four straight years in the Denvers 5280 Magazine and Consumers Research Council as one of the areas Top Dentists. I am state certified to perform conscious sedation for high anxiety patients. My sedation patients love getting dentistry done being super relaxed and with little memory of the entire appointment.
I have been a long-time Longmont resident, who graduated from Skyline High School (where I met my beautiful wife of 27 years)! I have three children, who I’m so proud of: Ryan is in graduate school at CSU for a Doctorate in Biochemistry, Ashlee will be attending Dental School in Colorado come August of 2011, and Shane is off to see the world soon with the AirForce. I love Colorado for all it has to offer. I enjoy many outdoor activities with my family and friends such as hiking, skiing, tennis, golf, fishing, and volleyball.
I feel fortunate and blessed in my life and career. These blessings bring joy to all aspects of my life. My love of children keeps me serving my community by coaching and helping under-privileged children get needed dental care. Through volunteering, I give back to the community I enjoy being a part of.
