Dentistry allows me to use my skills and expertise to make real and significant differences in the quality of life of my patients. The ability to alleviate pain and bring happiness and self-confidence to a person is a great reward, both personally and professionally.
I’ve always wanted to help people, to relieve pain, and to enable people to feel better about themselves. As a dentist, I am able to do all these things while restoring function and beauty to people’s smiles. It is so fulfilling to see a person so happy with the changes we’ve made to their smile, and to their confidence.
Education and continuing education
- Undergraduate studies and degree – Brigham Young University
- Doctorate of Dental Medicine – University of Kentucky Dental School
Dentistry is always changing and getting better; continuing education allows be to hone my skills and deliver dentistry in a more predictable and efficient manner. I attend annual ongoing continuing education programs, not only as a part of my license requirements, but also to enhance my abilities and knowledge to care for my patients even better.
Outside the office
Originally from Spanish Fork, Utah, I have lived in Hahira for more than a decade. My wife Leann and I have three daughters, Madeline, Jennifer and Elizabeth, as well as a foster daughter and a son-in-law. Our two cats are also very important members of our family. When I’m not in the office, I am passionate about spending time with my family. I also enjoy deep sea fishing, paintball, and target shooting.
I’m very active in my church, and take many opportunities to serve the members and community. I also participate in activities to help beautify our community through cleanup and restoration projects, and volunteer at the local food bank. Everyone needs an opportunity to give back; the more you help others, the stronger you and your community become.
