My passion is for creating healthy smiles that affect my patients' total health. I believe that my work extends far beyond the teeth and jaw line. In my 27 years in the field, I have seen a lot of changes, but my dedication to compassion and integrity in my practice has never changed. When you enter my office's doors, we consider you family and treat you as such.
I attended Apollo High School before going off to higher education at the University of Evansville. I earned my Doctorate of Medical Dentistry from University of Louisville Dental School. I have continued to be involved in various continuing education courses and seminars ever since. I focus on those regarding improving treatment options and the quality of care.
I have a progressive approach to dentistry, which means that I believe in using the newest technology and skills available in the field. Of course, quality is the benchmark, and I only use the new developments when they live up to my high standards. I am dedicated to continual improvement, and being linked to the professional community greatly helps me better my patients' lives.
Creating an atmosphere that comforts and relaxes you is my greatest goal in practicing. I am family oriented and treat all my patients as if they were members of my own family. My treatments are as gentle as possible and I am always willing to do what is best for my patients. I will always take time to discuss the recommended procedure with you before we go forward with it. My staff and I are always available post-procedure to answer any questions that may come to mind. If you are not comfortable at any point, neither am I.
Outside the Office
I am a native of Owensboro, KY and happy to have lived here for more than 50 years now. It has been a great place to live with my wife, step-children, step-grandchildren, and even my four-legged children. I enjoy exercise and am an automobile aficionado. I also treasure the community greatly and try to give back whenever I can. I am part of the Kiwanis Club and involved with Kidd Centric Sports. This community has given me a great life, and I am always happy to give back to it.
