My goal is to help you achieve and restore the esthetics, structure, function and biology, that make up your dream smile. I will work with you to meet your goals, no matter the situation. Dental problems can be overwhelming, and I want you to feel like I'm on your team. I am always available to listen and respond to any questions you have regarding your treatment. I feel that an informed patient is better able to make decisions regarding their treatment plan. For this reason, I will go the extra mile in presenting an array of treatment options catered to your needs while informing you to the best of my ability regarding the advantages and expectations of each treatment option.
I was born and raised in Ann Arbor, Michigan. I went to Pioneer high school, and went to nearly every UofM home football game. I attended Kalamazoo College, where I majored in Biochemistry. I then earned my Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree from the University of Michigan School of Dentistry in Ann Arbor. During dental school, I became interested in the surgical, restorative and esthetic components of oral rehabilitation. My desire to properly manage complex dental cases involving advanced esthetics and implant therapy led me back for more learning. I returned to the University of Michigan Dental School to complete a residency in prosthodontics. When I'm not practicing dentistry, you might find me playing guitar on my porch, traveling with my wife Alissa, hiking around the huron river taking photographs, enjoying a reuben at Zingermans, running through the arb with my dog Bentley, exercising at CrossFit Treetown, or maybe hanging out on the rooftop of Jolly Pumpkin. I look forward to meeting you!
