I graduated from Washington University in St. Louis in 1988. I originally started practicing in Raleigh and then came to practice in Durham in 2000. I am 3th generation dentist in my family. I grew up watching my grandfathers and my dad treat patients in their own offices. Seeing them made me realize how they genuinely cared for patients, as they were “all family.” I wanted to provide that same care to my own patients one day. I am married with 2 grown children. I enjoy thoroughly what I do each day and when given the chance and time, I go fishing.
