I was born and raised in Spokane, Washington and graduated from Gonzaga University. I received my Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree from Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska, then completed a three-year residency in periodontics and implant surgery and an additional two-year residency in endodontics at the University of Nebraska Medical Center.
I am a member of the American Dental Association and the American Association of Endodontists. I am a board-eligible Endodontist and a Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology.
I served as President of the Idaho Panhandle Dental Society (2014-2015) and currently serve as the Idaho Panhandle Trustee for the Idaho State Dental Association. In addition, I was recently inducted as a Fellow in to the Pierre Fauchard Academy; an honorary international dental service organization focused on promoting leadership and ethics in dentistry.
Outside the office, I appreciate all the Pacific Northwest offers, particularly golf, tennis, fly-fishing and watching Gonzaga basketball!
