I am originally from Hazen, North Dakota. After receiving a Bachelor of Science in Biology degree from the University of Mary in Bismarck, I attended the Doctor of Dental Surgery program at the University of Colorado, Denver Health Sciences Center. Following the completion of the program, I returned home to North Dakota to join Dental Care Associates. Here I began providing general dentistry to the long time patients and friends of the practice.
My enjoyment of clinical dentistry coupled with a lifelong desire to work with my hands makes dentistry a natural fit for me. I strive each day to provide the best possible care for my patients.
As hobbies, I enjoy around-the-house projects and spending summer weekends on Lake Sakakawea. I am also a through-and-through car guy. I love to work on my car projects and attend car shows.
I have completed continuing education studies in a range of dental treatments. An area of particular interest to me has been fabrication of complete and partial dentures, helping people to regain function and esthetics.
