I am a third generation dentist from Kirksville, Missouri. I followed into the footsteps of my father and grandfather, in their love for dentistry. Settling, in Columbia Missouri after dental school, I have enjoyed a long and fulfilling career in private practice. I have enjoyed my interactions with my patients and staff, and have found my career to be a very exciting and interesting part of my life. I have stayed current in my profession through continuing education opportunities and have enjoyed giving back to the community. I have stayed very active in my local Rotary Club component and have been active with a number of dental associations. I have especially enjoyed sharing my love for the field with prospective dental students. I have had numerous undergraduate students shadow my work, and I have found it to be very enjoyable to inspire the younger generations.
I spend most of my free time with my wife and three grown children. We enjoy cycling and attending almost any Mizzou sporting event.
