I love being a dentist because it allows me to give someone back their smile. It is truly a pleasure to work with the people in my community on a daily basis and make a positive impact on their lives. Each patient I meet has a unique personality that brings diversity to each day at the office. Along with my awesome team, we work together to treat each patient with respect and compassion.
I received my Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 1995 from the Ohio State University College of Dentistry. The field of dentistry is always changing to enhance the patients’ experience and I strive to implement new technology in my practice and deliver new procedures to my patients. I attend numerous continuing education classes from many sources, including Sfumato, a local organization comprising dentists who meet regularly for the purpose of continuing their education to better treat their patients. I am also an active member of the American Dental Association, the Ohio Dental Association, and the Mad River Valley Dental Society.
I am a Cable, Ohio, native, growing up on a horse farm and graduating from Triad High School. I now own my own farm and live there with my lovely wife, Melinda, our daughters Kenna and Corinne, and our dog named Brutus. When I’m not spending as much time as possible with my family, I enjoy hiking, fishing, and traveling.
Because I am a Cable local, I understand the importance of being an active member of the community where I work and live. I am a member of Grace Baptist Church and support students in Mechanicsburg, Triad, and Urbana with sports and yearbooks. I also sponsor golf outings and benefits for community members in need. I am a member of Chamber of Commerce in Urbana and am very supportive of the Champaign County Fair.
