I’m a native Oregonian who attended South Salem High School. I obtained my undergraduate degree in General Science at Oregon State University. I went on to get my doctorate in Dentistry at OHSU School of Dentistry in 1985. I spent my two year Orthodontic residency at Indiana University earning my Orthodontic specialty degree. In addition, I earned my Masters of Science in Dentistry degree at Indiana University. As friendly as the Midwesterners were, I returned to live in my home state. I have lived in and around Lake Oswego since starting practice. My kids are now in their twenties and live and work in Portland. My wife and I recently moved to downtown Portland and enjoy living in the city.
I have tried to create a practice over the last 30 years that is professional but also has a friendly and personal feel to it. I have focused on regularly attending continuing education courses and keeping my practice progressive when it comes to research and technology so that my patients benefit from this. Our practice has many “firsts” in the Portland area which include digitally scanning patients to obtain models, 3D X-ray imaging, and now 3D printing to create an impressionless practice.
