The field of orthodontics is somewhat of a family business. Both my father and my grandfather were orthodontists, and I joined them in the health field first by becoming a dentist, and then narrowing my field to orthodontics. It is such a privilege to be part of a day someone remembers forever when the braces come off. I love the relationships I am able to build with my patients and their families by providing the care we give. While much of the work I do is repetitive in nature, the individuals are all different and that helps make every day fun.
Bachelor's Degree - Brigham Young University
Doctor of Dental Surgery - University of Southern California San Francisco
Masters; Specialty Certificaton in Orthodontics- Baylor College of Dentistry
I have practiced in the Portland/Vancouver area since 1997 and have consistently attempted to improve the level of care we give as technology and advancements in orthodontics develop. I can say with confidence that the options we offer our patients are currently unmatched in any other office in southwest Washington.

Outside the Office
When I'm not at the office I enjoy fishing and skiing, and am hoping that someday I won't embarrass myself on the golf course. I am an avid sports fan and love to watch, read, or talk about the Trailblazers. I love my wife, Erin, and we have been married over 20 years. She is active in supporting our three children, Tyler, Lauren, and Anna, in their school events and loves to read and play indoor soccer.
