Education and Continuing Education
I grew up in Kannapolis, NC and have lived in Claremont for the past 22 years. I studied dentistry at UNC Chapel Hill and stay current by attending continuing education in complex restorative dentistry, implants, sleep apnea, and cosmetics.
- Academy of General Dentistry
- American Academy of Implant Dentistry, associate fellow
- American Dental Association
- Kois Center, mentor
- North Carolina Dental Society
I’ll put the talent and skills of my team up against any practice in the area. Patients will never be treated like a number at our practice, but always as the unique and special individuals they are. Most days the office is filled with laughter and good music. At our practice, you’ll be treated like family … just like we do in the country!
Outside the Office
At home I have a wife, Donna, who owns her own successful salon/spa. We have three “children”: two Maltese, Ivy and Violet, and our cat, Cassie. Away from work you’ll find me on one of my road or mountain bikes or spending time with Donna, Ivy, Violet and Cassie. I’m also an avid Tarheels fan!
I also stay involved in our local community by donating my services to organizations such as the North Carolina Missions of Mercy, Catawba Cooperative Christian Ministries dental clinic, NC Baptist Men dental bus, and the NC Dental Foundation.
I’ve spent my whole life preparing for what I do on a day-to-day basis. I hope you’ll trust me to be your dentist and to help you make your oral health the very best it can be!
