My intention is to try and treat everyone as I would like to be treated. My time is best spent diagnosing my patients and effectively implementing the care and treatment that the patient truly desires... I honestly wish to do no more and no less dentistry than what the patient wants me to do.
We attempt always to be good listeners, and to distance ourselves from the "cookie cutter" or "mill" approach, which we see in many dental offices today..
Having said that, it is of particular pride and satisfaction (and humbleness) when we can reflect on a patient that has chosen for health and (or) esthetic reasons, to enter into comprehensive restorative care, and make a helpful change, improving the quality of life of the patient...
I am the proud father of one grown daughter who has served as captain/anchor on a State HS championship swimming team. She has an MS and devotes her life to teaching math and english to non english speaking children.. I enjoy singing in church choirs and ensembles, and have played electric guitar in a "Jesus Rock Band." MY hobbies include classical vocal singing and currently working with the Rogue Valley Chorale. Enjoy and play Jazz, Folk, Rock, Blues, and pop as well as Classical, piano, guitar and bass.. Enjoy ocean fishing and Oregon stream and fly fishing, as well as x-country skiing, and boating on the mountain lakes of Oregon with my friends.. Came to Oregon from Chicago beginning of 1981, and have not been disappointed. Enjoy our Ashland plays at OSF and Bomer as well! My undergraduate Biology Degree from the Jesuits in Chicago helped to give me direction through a 4 Year dental program at the University of Iliinois. Have done post grad at SF, Roth Center; and also post grad at OHSU on the hill in Portland, at the dental school . Just last year did several trips to Denver to brush up and become current on latest restorative care/ techniques.
