About Overview

I am a coach. I am a success planner who happens to be a dentist. For over 30 years I have focused on preventing all cavities and all gums infections for the rest of my patients’ lives. Most people go to the dentist and they never really learn what causes their cavities. When they get a little older, they start having gum infections and they never learn why. And then they get a little older and their teeth start to break and they never learn why. Then they start pulling their teeth and they never learn why they broke down.


I believe people want to need a dentist less as they get older, not more as they get older. That is why the focus of my practice is to help people prevent all cavities and all gum infections for the rest of their lives.

Our Mission

Our mission is to honor God by providing excellent dental care in a warm, caring and nurturing environment provided by a friendly, kind and well trained team so that our patients can enjoy great health, great teeth and a better quality of life. Understanding that the health of our mouths directly impacts the health of the rest of our bodies, we look deeper at what causes dental disease rather than simply treating a dental disease. Therefore we are committed to preventing dental problems so that our patients can be healthier tomorrow than they are today.

We are committed to understanding each patient so we can coach them to help achieve their goals for a lifetime. One of our goals is to help our patients need the least amount of dentistry possible over the rest of their lives.  Believing that “usual and customary dentistry” is not good enough for our patients, we focus on minimally invasive techniques to do all the things a dentist can do to make teeth comfortable, stable, and maintainably healthy, all while achieving the very best esthetics possible.
