Helping people obtain their individual goals as it relates to overall dental health is rewarding and is what motivates me each day. My reward is getting to know each patient personally and being able to apply my knowledge and skills toward excellent patient care. Each patient presents their own unique challenges, and I strive to meet these challenges with compassion and consistency. I truly appreciate the people who put their trust in me and allow me to help them with their dental health.
I earned my Doctorate of Dental Surgery at the University of Tennessee and have been practicing dentistry for 36 years. Currently, I am involved with the AGD Master Track continuing education program, which ensures that I am exposed to the latest developments in all areas of dentistry. I believe continuing education is necessary to provide my patients with the best care available. I have received fellowships in Academy of General Dentistry and International Congress of Oral Implantologists, and am an alumnus of the Pankey Institute and Misch Institute of Implantology.
