I am blessed to work in a field that offers so much to patients. I know that every day I have the opportunity to positively impact my patients' lives. Educating people to prevent oral health problems and improving their confidence and quality of life are the best parts of my job.
I knew at a young age, watching my father practice, that I wanted to be a dentist. He loved his work, his staff, and his patients, and I feel the same. I sincerely enjoy every aspect of my work. I get to help people; what a great thing!
I attended the University of Wisconsin, La Crosse, for my undergraduate education and earned my Doctorate of Dental Surgery from Marquette University in 1997. I visit the Scottsdale Center for Dentistry and other continuing education seminars each year to stay up to date on the best dentistry for our patients.
In Eagle River, we have great, hardworking, fun loving community members. Some of our patients watched me grow up here! I love that our patients are committed to our community. We all know one another's families, share hunting and fishing stories, and celebrate one another's successes!
Our team is like a family. All of our staff members have been with us at least two years, with our longest employee having been here 38 years after starting with our dad! We enjoy working together and playing together at local special events and office gatherings. Our staff is full of talented, committed professionals.
My wife, Tara, and I have two sons, Greyson and Grant, and family dog. When I’m not in the office I enjoy the great outdoors and spend most of my time hunting, hiking, fishing, boating, and playing with my kids.
