Every day I have the honor of meeting new people, strengthening connections with those in my patient family, and helping them. Building a trusting rapport with each person, and supporting them as they develop a healthier smile and stronger self-esteem, is immensely fulfilling: I’ve been practicing dentistry since 1990 and know it is the most rewarding profession!
I have learned that really listening to each patient, encouraging them to talk about their desires and concerns, and understanding where they are coming from, establishes a bond. By fostering trust, and creating a partnership with my patient, I am able to provide the dental care the person needs and ensure each procedure delivers the results they desire.
One of the most amazing things about dentistry, today, is the in-house technology we’re able to utilize. I am happy to provide same-day crowns, bridges, and veneers for my patients. Being able to design and fabricate each restoration, myself, and then place it the same day, is revolutionary. No longer do patients have to make do with uncomfortable temporaries while waiting for a dental lab to manufacture and ship their restoration. Instead, within several hours, they have what they need: a healthier, functional, and more attractive smile!

Beyond the Practice
I’ve lived in Matthews/Charlotte since September 1991. This is an amazing area and I am happy to have raised my family here.
My wife, Lori, works with me at the dental practice. We also have four children: Adam is currently in an orthodontic residency in Florida; Gillian works in public health for the CDC in Atlanta, GA; Matthew is currently an undergraduate at UNC Charlotte; and Sydney starts college in August 2018. Lori and I won’t be empty-nesters: we have a collie, Brody, and a Siamese cat, Oliver.
When not caring for my patients, my priority is time with Lori and my children. I enjoy gardening, cooking, and reading novels, too. I also love traveling, both domestically and internationally, and attending sporting events, especially Carolina Panthers NFL games.
I am passionate about enjoying life and having fun: as a dentist, I strive to help my patients do the same!
