I am a native of Wichita, and a 1978 University of Kansas graduate. In 1983, I graduated from UMKC School of Dentistry with my Doctorate of Dental Surgery.
Following graduation, I completed a one-year general practice residency with the US Army at Fort Carson, Colorado. Then I was stationed at Fort Leavenworth, where I completed my active duty military career. I pursued further training in maxillofacial prosthodontics at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, and returned to general practice in 1986.
My dental philosophy is to make you feel as comfortable as possible while providing quality dentistry. Through my kind-hearted, gentle nature, I truly enjoy getting to know my patients on a personal level. My staff and current patients know me to be compassionate, family-oriented, and above all, genuine.
I have been married to my wife Kathy for almost 30 years. We have four sons: Jeff, Tom, Brian, and Andy. In my spare time, I enjoy golf, traveling, and hunting.
