I have always had a true passion for dentistry. I know this is evident through the quality of care I provide to my patients and the individual relationships I have built over the years with them. As a testament to this, I was selected twice as Top Dentist in Western Michigan. I believe everyone deserves to have the best possible dental health and my number one concern for my patients is comfort. Our goal is that our patients leave the chair with a smile, both inside and out!
Education and Continuing Education
I graduated from Michigan State University with a Bachelor of Science degree from Lymann Briggs Honor College in chemistry and physics. I then went on to graduate from the University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry in 1985 with my Doctorate of Dental Surgery.
I am committed to lifelong learning and pursuing excellence in all I do. Since completing dental school over 28 years ago, I have attended countless continuing education programs in all aspects of dentistry, allowing myself to stay current in new dental advancements and techniques. By staying up to date, I am able to provide my patients the best care available.
Outside the Office
As a native of Grand Rapids, MI, I have always loved my home town and always wanted to find ways to help my community. I am actively involved in mission and outreach work during my free time. I also give back to the community through outreach programs such as Dentistry with a Heart, which offers free dental care to those in need.
My wife, Patricia, and I have been married for over 30 years. We’ve been blessed with four children, and I am very honored to have one of my daughters, Alexis, join me in my dental practice. When I’m not in the office, I enjoy biking, fishing, hiking, being outdoors, and spending time with family.
