I view every day as a fresh opportunity to show patients the gentle, compassionate, and caring side of the dental profession. I love the challenge of helping patients find a solution to whatever their dental needs may be. It is very fulfilling for me and my team to do our part in changing the perception that dentistry can't be fun and relaxing. Find me on Google+.
Education and Continuing Education
- Bachelor of Science – Michigan State University
- Doctor of Dental Surgery – University of Detroit Mercy
Dental technology is continually advancing, and I challenge myself to always provide my family of patients with the most comfortable and up-to-date care. To stay current with the newest and best in dental technology, I take more than 100 hours of continuing education each year in dental implants, IV sedation, advanced cosmetic techniques, and Invisalign® orthodontics through the Medical College of Georgia. In addition, I am an active member of the International Congress of Implantology and the American Dental Association.
Outside the Office
I am originally from Livonia, MI, and have lived in Sarasota since 2003. I have two young sons, Zander age 12 and Griffin age11, and a golden doodle named Jake. I love boating with my sons, playing golf and tennis, and exploring new restaurants in my free time. I am also active in our community, starting office programs that challenge us to help the people in our area in any way we can.
