As a dentist, I really enjoy the ability to develop relationships and be an advocate for the oral health of my patients. It’s exciting to identify each patient’s needs and then deliver tangible results to restore health, function, and aesthetics at the highest level.
I believe in the professional world of dentistry — most importantly, that of ethics surrounding care. I have a responsibility to work in your best interest and to achieve the greatest level of care. I thrive on caring for your well-being. I am here to provide prudent guidance on the necessity of treatment, and the best ways to deliver these results to you.

As a firm believer that oral healthcare professionals need to stay on the leading edge of developments in the field, I constantly review the latest research and discussion on new and traditional avenues of dental care. I believe even the most traditional methods should progress, but only if it supports better outcomes in the health and treatment of our patients.
As technology evolves, I look for everything that produces the best results for you, whether it’s increased comfort, durability, beauty, or all of the above. While some bells and whistles provide the illusion of care, we choose to focus only on what’s best for you.

I was born and raised in Danville, Illinois, just an hour west of here. I’ve called the West Lafayette community home for most of my adult life and love that my patients are also my friends and neighbors.
I share my life with an amazing wife, five growing kids, and two happy Vizsla dogs. I love spending time with my family, whether it’s outside with the kids or building Legos and creating fun projects with them. The calendar always fills up with sports and camps, so sometimes it’s nice to just be together. Of course, we enjoy Purdue tailgates in the fall, as well as basketball games in Mackey Arena.
When I’m not busy with my family, I like to tackle projects ranging from simple home improvement or woodworking, to tinkering with old vehicles. I also like to support local initiatives. This area is our home, and I am incredibly proud of our community!
