First and foremost, I am not what most would call your 'average dentist.' When I was born in Denison, TX, my parents lived in a single wide mobile home on the family farm and worked a dairy farm for a living. Though they were forced out of the dairy business when I was only three, I had already begun to appreciate the value of hard work and my humble beginnings. After a short couple of years in Arlington, we moved to Burleson, TX where I grew up. I worked with my father in a fish market during the summers starting when I was only 10. I learned to run the cash register, handle customers, and clean fish. When I was 13 my father opened a cabinet business near our home, which to me meant that I could now work after school as well. By the time I was 16 I was working 30 hours per week during the school year and 50 during summers making cabinets, doors, countertops, and installing them across Texas, Oklahoma, and Louisiana. Even after I started college I didn't stop working. During summers, I worked on the family farm baling hay, repairing tractors, and working my grandparents' beef cattle. My work ethic also spilled over into the classroom. I loved learning, and I always strived to be the best. I maintained a 4.0 GPA throughout high school, enrolled in the Honors Program at Baylor University in Waco and graduated in 2013 Magna Cum Laude with a major in chemistry and a minor in mathematics. I attended Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas, was inducted into the dental honor society, and graduated #4 out of my class of 103. I then attended an advanced training program at the Olin E. Teague VA Hospital here in Temple where I learned advanced surgical and restorative techniques, implants, and sedation. Even now I average 40 hours of continuing education each year so that I can ensure I provide the best treatment possible for all my patients. If you are looking for a dentist that values hard work, has real-world life experiences, and has both the training and skills to provide top-quality dentistry, then you have come to the right place.
I realize that no two patients are exactly alike, and thus no two treatment plans should be exactly alike. I personally sit down and visit with each patient at their new patient interview. I want to get to know my patients, what they value, and what they want to achieve. If you want the 'Hollywood smile,' we can offer that. However, some patients just want to take out a single bothersome tooth, others want to straighten crooked teeth, and others only want to be able to go out in public without being ashamed. I am very up-front and honest about what I see, what I recommend, and what is possible.
In our office we have informational videos playing in the lobby covering all facets of dentistry, from gum disease to extractions, fillings to Invisalign. We have state-of-the-art radiographs and panoramic x-ray machines that reduce the overall radiation exposure to miniscule levels. We put patient health and safety first, and we do all that we can to ensure a positive experience while you are here.
We offer both oral and IV sedation so that even those who are fearful of dental work can get the treatment that they deserve. I believe in patient-centered care and doing as much of the treatment plan as possible in-house, thus eliminating when possible the need for multiple referrals to specialists for procedures that can be safely completed by your primary dentist.
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.
