The profession of dentistry means the world to me. How else can someone help people every day, by providing them with gentle care that not only improves their oral health, but their whole body’s health, and increases their self-esteem at the same time? I know that, if given the chance, I can help a reticent patient learn that dentistry has changed and that pain-free dental treatment is not only available, but the only type of care that I provide. I find great fulfillment in seeing a patient smile after I’ve finished caring for them, and am even happier when my skills help to relieve a patient of dental pain that has made their life difficult.

I am a native of Amarillo, TX, and have lived here for 42 years. My wife, Dina, and I have two daughters, Makenna and Bentley, and our house is also home to two dogs and two cats. My family is my highest priority when I’m not working, though I enjoy riding four-wheelers, shooting skeet and clay targets, and going bird hunting, too. I also have a shop where I get to take on different projects, which is always fun. We attend Hillside Christian and I am active in several programs through the church.
