I believe in taking the time of fully educate my patients on their dental needs so that together we can make a decision on which treatment choices will best meet their needs. I enjoy the many aspects of practicing dentistry that allow me to use my artistic, engineering, and medical knowledge, but nothing is more important to me than the personal relationships I build with my patients.
Everyone here puts forth the extra effort and time so that our patients can receive the personal service and quality that they deserve. We will always keep a smile on for our patients because we know how important a positive dental experience can be.

Outside the Office
I was born, raised, and currently live in Warner Robins, Georgia. My lovely wife Cara and I have a son and our family dog/my personal assistant, Murphy.
Cara and I love going to concerts. Our favorite bands include the Allman Brothers, Gov't Mule, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, and the Revivalists. We love to spend our free weekends at the beach. When l am not practicing my favorite hobby (dentistry), I am usually working on my race car or doing home improvement projects.
