Dentistry is an interesting profession in that it allows me to combine science along with the use of my hands to very meticulously solve and fix problems. It involves artistry and a keen sense for detail to provide the highest level of excellence for my patients. That is what makes it so interesting and exciting for me! The end result is making a positive difference in peoples lives by improving their smile, oral health and in turn, their overall health.
Being in the dental profession offers the great opportunity to meet so many people from different backgrounds and diversities. Getting to know my patients on a personal level and customizing the dentistry I provide them, to fit their individual needs, is what makes what I do so unique and fulfilling. The relationships I form with my patients create not just a professional bond, but lasting friendships.

Outside the Office
I grew up in Shenandoah, Iowa, which is a small farming community in the southwest corner of Iowa. After my four years in the Army, I moved to Green Bay in 1995 where I currently reside with my wife, stepdaughter, and our horse named Bella. In my free time I enjoy landscaping, golf, scuba diving, skiing, and boating.
