What I love about dentistry: I love to meet all the families and children. I love the new technology in dentistry that allows us to offer a wider range of services to our patients.

What I love about dentistry: Helping families smile with confidence! I gain a huge sense of gratification when working with patients and seeing pride reflected in their smile. It’s so rewarding treating patients with first class care in our modern, stress free facility.
Background: I was born in New Jersey, and being part of a military family, we moved frequently all over the country before settling on the Carolina Coast. In 2001, our family moved to Jacksonville, NC where I graduated White Oak High School before completing my bachelor’s degree at UNCW and doctorate at ECU. When I am not practicing dentistry, I enjoy following sports, golfing, cooking, and spending time with my wife, Crystal, and our two daughters. I look forward to providing the members of our community quality dental care in a family environment.
