I am passionate about providing outstanding dental care to my patients. I value the positive interactions I have with a wide variety of people from my community. I view my patients as more than just patients, but as friends and even family. I have watched many of my patients grow from small children to adulthood, and now they bring their own children to see me!
Providing the best possible, most comprehensive treatment while meeting the individual needs of each patient drives me always to be the best I can be. I love having the ability to affect my patients’ lives by giving them a beautiful new smile, relieving their pain, or assisting in attaining optimal oral health. I look forward to doing the same for you and your family.
Education and Continuing Education
- Walla Walla University – Bachelor’s degree in chemistry
- Loma Linda University – Doctorate of Dental Surgery
I graduated with my dental degree in 1985 and practiced in Southern California for ten years while my wife finished medical school and residency. We moved to Mill Creek in 1995 and I have practiced here ever since!
I feel it is important to learn the newest and best technology and treatment modalities in order provide the best possible care. Dentistry is a field that requires constant and never-ending learning in a variety of topics. In my 30 years of practice, I have continued my education in cosmetics, Invisalign®, implant dentistry, technology, and treatment advances, just to name a few.
I am proud to have been recognized by my patients and peers as one of Seattle Met magazine’s Top Dentists for three years in a row! It is an honor to be entrusted with the quality care of our community, and a recognition I will continue to strive to earn.

Outside the Office
I was born in Denver, Colorado and grew up in both Colorado and Montana. I currently reside in Everett with my wife of 31 years. She is an OB/GYN at Evergreen Health. We share two beautiful daughters and one loveable golden retriever. I have always loved the outdoors, so my favorite activities aside from being with my family include playing golf and skiing.
