Education I received my Doctorate of Dental Surgery, Masters Degree and Specialty Training in Periodontics from the University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine. Turns out, I was pretty excited about implant dentistry and bone grafting procedures, so I stuck around a little longer for my certificate in Implantology after residency. I really felt like doing some extra complex implant prosthodontics and restorative dentistry would make it easier to work with my referral colleagues. After the fellowship, I decided to take it one step further and obtain my ABP Board Certification. Research | Grants | Awards: I'd like to describe myself primarily as a clinician… However, I'd be a liar if I said I didn't get a strange sense of satisfaction out of answering research questions that occur in my everyday practice of periodontics. I'm pretty sure I've always been a little twisted this way. In October of 2012 I received the 2012 Student Research Grant Award (from the American Academy of Implant Dentistry Research Foundation) to support an inflammatory cytokine study around different implant abutment designs. At the time we were super interested in the ability for specific surface topography of abutments to promote gingival fibroblast attachment. During my residency I tackled 3 research projects related to bone grafting after extractions, cement remnants around implant crowns, and the effects of extraction and ridge preservation on the sinus floor topography. In fact, in February of 2016 I was awarded the John F. Prichard Graduate Periodontal Research Award for my sinus pneumatization study. The funny part is, I just did this study to find a way to reduce additional post-extraction augmentation procedures needed to place an implant! Teaching | Private Practice I currently live in Florida but I make a monthly commute back to Colorado to hang out with the Grad Perio Residents, my previous director Dr. Chuck Powell and the incredible staff of instructors who put up with my shenanigans for a solid four years. I was given such an incredible education I feel obligated to harass them even more! As a bonus they let me tag along in literature discussions so that I keep my noggin sharp! Perio Love | Skill-set I love perio. I live and breathe this stuff. This really allows me to offer a wide range of surgical capabilities to my patients. These include dental implants, guided dental implant surgery, advanced bone grafting (vertical and horizontal), soft tissue grafting for function and cosmetics, 3rd molar extractions, IV sedation and a boat load of cheesy dental humor. All crummy jokes aside, I am set on providing only the most incredible and reliable results to my patients. Life | Stuff I'm married… to someone WAY cooler than me. I don't know how I fooled her into this relationship but she has stuck it out with me this far! Jenni and I moved to St. Augustine Florida back in January of 2016. It's a cool place to live I'll tell you that! The people have treated us well and the rich history combined with a laid back beach vibe have kept us entertained. I'm currently starting to snag some waves and dodge some sharks!

Medical malpractice is issued when negligence by a doctor causes injury to a patient. For example, a doctor may improperly diagnose, treat or medicate outside the standard of medical care. The three types of malpractice are: a settlement, an arbitration award, or a judgment.
If my doctor has malpractice history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If your doctor has a malpractice claim, evaluate the information and determine if the action could potentially impact the quality of care you receive. Claim settlements and arbitration awards may occur for a variety of reasons, which should not necessarily reflect negatively on the doctor's professional competence or conduct. You may want to use this information to start a discussion with the doctor about his or her history and specific ability to provide healthcare for you.
How far back does Healthgrades malpractice history go?
Healthgrades reports details of a doctor’s malpractice history when the doctor has at least one closed medical malpractice claim within the last five years, even if he or she no longer practices in that state.
For which states does Healthgrades collect malpractice history?
Healthgrades collects malpractice information from California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, and West Virginia. If your doctor has a malpractice claim, evaluate the information and determine if the action could potentially impact your quality of care. Sometimes multiple states report the same claim. If a provider practices in a state where data is unavailable, please reach out to your local state legislature to help make this data publicly available.
No sanctions history found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
What is a sanction or disciplinary action?
A sanction, also known as a disciplinary action, is an action taken to punish or restrict a doctor who has demonstrated professional misconduct. Sanctions may be imposed by a state medical board, professional medical licensing organization, or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
If my doctor has sanction history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a sanction, it does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor-quality doctor. Some sanctions are not related to medical care, and involve a doctor’s finances or administrative activities. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, we recommend that you evaluate the doctor’s sanction information and determine how severe or relevant you think the sanction cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades sanction history go?
Healthgrades reports state and federal sanctions from the previous five years, except when a doctor's license has been revoked or surrendered. Healthgrades displays all actions for doctors whose licenses have been revoked or surrendered.
For which states does Healthgrades collect sanction history?
Healthgrades collects sanction history from all 50 U.S. states. Physicians with a disciplinary action in one state may move to another state where they have a clean record. Since Healthgrades painstakingly compiles disciplinary action information from all 50 states, Healthgrades website will show if a physician has a disciplinary action in more than one state.
0 Board Actions
No board actions found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
What are board actions?
Board actions are non-disciplinary actions imposed upon a doctor based on a complaint investigation. A patient or medical colleague may file a complaint with that state medical board or professional licensing organization, which then investigates the complaint. Board actions are intended to ensure that a doctor is able to perform safe medical and health care tasks.
Types of non-disciplinary actions include an advisory letter, a corrective action agreement, a limitation or restriction on the medical or healthcare tasks a doctor can perform, or a voluntary agreement by the doctor not to practice. A board action can also include a termination of a corrective action agreement or voluntary agreement, which allows the doctor to return to full practice.
If my doctor has a board action, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a board action, it means he or she has had a non-disciplinary action imposed upon him or her. It does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor quality doctor. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, evaluate the doctor's board action information and determine how severe or relevant you think the cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades non-disciplinary board action history go?
Healthgrades reports non-disciplinary board action history from for the previous five years, except when a doctor's license has been revoked or surrendered. Healthgrades displays all actions for doctors whose licenses have been revoked or surrendered.
