I feel immensely blessed to be an orthodontist.  My job gives me two incredible opportunities.  It allows me to meet and interact with so many of the amazing people in this community--people I may not otherwise have the privilege of meeting.  It also enables me to impact the lives of these people in such a positive and meaningful way.  I consider the smile to be the greatest tool we have to express our happiness to those around us.  The opportunity I have to perfect a smile for someone else makes me excited to wake up every morning.  I thrive on seeing the transformation as people go from hiding their smiles to sharing them with the world!

I find my ultimate fulfillment in being a husband and father.  Brianne and I married shortly after I determined to end my 5-year career as a construction laborer and to return to school to become an orthodontist.  She wholeheartedly supported this decision and never doubted in me.  A decade of schooling and four children later, she is still by my side encouraging me in all that I do.  With four energetic kids to enliven our home there is never a dull moment.
