Dentistry is my major life challenge, so the responsibility helps me conduct my life and those around me to live a high standard of life. Different personalities help me practice and deliver what each patient desires. Our patients know everything we tell them comes from our heart, not our pocket book!
Working in a group practice setting has many merits. It allows our patients to have access to a doctor at any time of the day or night, allows us the ability to complete most procedures in house, allows us to make diagnoses with multiple specialty perspectives, and give us the freedom of having a management team to oversee the business end of the practice. All of this makes our patients’ experience truly exceptional.
I attended the Ohio State University College of Dentistry in Columbus, Ohio, graduating with my Doctorate of Dental Surgery. Since then, I have continued my education with extensive study in surgical procedures, orthodontics, and case presentations. It is my goal to always stay current with dental procedures and techniques.
As a group practice, we meet monthly to discuss treatments and share information recently acquired through continuing education classes. This enables us as doctors to offer state-of-the-art dentistry for all patients.
I grew up in Avon Lake, Ohio on the shore of Lake Erie, Ohio, and now live in Wilson, North Carolina. I have been blessed with three grown children, seven grandchildren, and two soft-coated Wheaton Terriers. I enjoy time spent in my fabulous garden and at the beach relaxing.
My personal mission is to be honored with life, be fair, help others achieve their goals, be kind, and be a disciple of God.
