I will get to know you first and foremost so that I can best address your concerns and needs. My goal is to create an extraordinary patient experience in the most comfortable, efficient, and transparent way possible.


I have been practicing dentistry since 2014. I grew up in Spokane, Washington. My wife and I attended dental school together, and we have two cocker spaniels. In my spare time, I love to play golf. I try to exercise almost every day so I can eat my favorite food, pizza.

I am a fan of the Mariners, Huskies, and Sonics. I love to listen to audiobooks, classic rock, country, and metal (only in traffic or at the gym). I love craft beer, whisky, and bingeing TV shows.
