Education and Continuing Education
I grew up in Catawba and graduated from Bandy’s High School. I studied Biology with a minor in Chemistry at Appalachian State University and, due to proximity, was able to be actively involved in Catawba Cooperative Christian Ministries dental clinic during my undergraduate career. As a graduate of East Carolina University School of Dental Medicine, I received an well-rounded clinical education in the various aspects of general dentistry. In line with being a lifelong learner, I have been heavily involved in continuing education courses as to best treat my patient’s needs.

Outside the Office
If I’m not in the office, you’re most likely to find me spending time outside. Now that I’m back in my hometown, I’m able to enjoy my hobbies of hunting and fishing with my family and friends. A perk of being back to the Catawba area, too, is that I get to play basketball with my younger brother, Dakota. I also have a rescue dog named Lynard who loves playing outdoors.
I met my wife, Alex, in dental school and we married in December of 2018. She is currently earning her certificate in pediatric dentistry at the Medical College of Georgia. We look forward to making Catawba County our permanent home when Alex completes her residency. Together, we enjoy going for long walks on the greenway as well as attending sporting events.
Although I am an ECU graduate, I will always be a “mountaineer” at heart. I love going to Boone every chance I get, especially for gamedays.
