Meet our Fantastic Dental Team!
I graduated from Case Western Reserve University School of Dentistry in 1989. I did a tour of duty in the U.S. Navy as a dentist. I also served on a ship during Desert Storm in the Persian Gulf during the 1991 Persian Gulf War.
After being discharged from the U.S. Navy, I started a family dental practice in San Diego, CA where I was in practice for 13 years before coming back to the Midwest. My training is extensive in oral surgery and prosthodontics. I also place my own dental implants and do full mouth reconstruction of teeth and smiles frequently while using the most current techniques. In my spare time I enjoy bicycling and camping with my fiancé and teenage children. Snow skiing and winter sports are my passion.
