Se Habla Espanol
I am from the small town of Dubois, Wyoming. Growing up my father was an artist who carved scenery into moose antler. While spending many hours in his shop I realized my passion for the artistry and had the desire to combine artistry with dentistry. After high school, I pursued my bachelors degree in Honors Chemistry here at Idaho State University while playing football. Go Bengals! I graduated from dental school at the University of Nebraska Medical School in Lincoln Nebraska in 2018. I have practiced for the last 3 years in Casper Wyoming but was drawn back to Eastern Idaho. I am excited to be back! Extra training that I have done include an extensive implant focused Maxi Course at the University of Puerto Rico. I am IV sedation certified to provide the best comfort for my patients.
Outside the office I enjoy spending time with my wife and 4 rowdy boys! We enjoy spending time outdoors, playing sports, and traveling.
Dentistry runs through my veins. My mother was a dental hygienist and my father is a dentist. I was born and raised in Pocatello and met my wife in high school. I attended dental school in Kentucky at University of Louisville. After dental school, I completed a three-year
prosthodontic residency at University of Indiana. After that, I completed a maxillofacial prosthetics fellowship at University of Indiana. What does this all mean? It means I'm passionate about restoring smiles. My prosthodontics specialty makes me an expert at restoring complex dental needs, often involving two or more teeth. I specialize in prosthetics, ie: crowns, dentures, bridges and implants. My maxillofacial training enables me to fabricate and fit prosthetic ears, noses, eyes and obturators.
When I'm not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my wife and four children. We love watching movies, golfing and skiing together.
