Education and Continuing Education
Continuing education combined with experience, skill, and the master of universal principles is the foundation of quality dentistry. I have completed hundreds of hours of coursework in Orthodontics, Six Month Smiles, TMJ Facial Pain, and Dental Sleep Medicine.
In addition to being a well-respected family dentist in Greenwood, Indiana, I am recognized as a local expert in medically prescribed treatments for sleep apnea.

Outside the Office
I reside in Center Grove with my wife, Shelley, and two of our six children. We have a lovely granddaughter named Kyla and a Maltese named Chloe. I am devoted to my family and spend my fair weather free time enjoying and improving our back yard getaway.
I enjoy moderate regular exercise, reading, nutrition, photography, landscaping, deck construction, and venturing to the island of St. Martin, which my wife and I visit each year to relax and renew with our island friends.
As you open you heart and expand your experience through the relentless search for truth you become conscious of life, self, and God.
