Commitment to Community

I spent my first three years out of dental school working for community health centers that focused on helping underserved populations. My first two years were in Colorado Springs, Colorado and I spent my third year in Hillsboro, Missouri. I'm truly grateful for the opportunity to see the positive impact we made in the lives of so many patients who, if not for our drastically reduced rates, would have had to suffer without treatment. I will carry these memories with me as I continue to seek out new ways to serve the less fortunate.

Life & Hobbies

I enjoy playing golf with friends from college and dental school, travelling with my wife, and spending lazy afternoons on the couch with our Pug, Tato. Growing up in a small town north of Kansas City and attending college in another small town in northern Missouri taught me to appreciate communities that band together and share a sense of ownership in the well-being of others. I enjoy outdoor activities such as fishing and biking as well as simple car rides with family when the weather is nice.
