Dentistry is a way for me to improve the lives of others; whether it is through the relief of pain, restoring a wonderful smile, or improving their health, I enjoy making each patient’s day better.
I grew up in Grand Forks and returned after completing dental school. This community has made me the person I am, has been good to me throughout my life, and now I’m able, through my profession, to give back to my neighbors.
It is an honor to work in this practice, with an incredible team that truly cares about our patients as people. Our team members are emotionally present at each visit and are willing and eager to help each person who comes through our door. We focus on staying positive and hope to be a bright spot in our patients’ days, regardless of what brings them to the office.
Beyond the Office
When not caring for patients, I treasure time with my wife Karlie and my family. I do some home brewing as a fun hobby, and like attending University of North Dakota sporting events, as well as traveling to Milwaukee, where I lived during dental school.
I also work at an establishment called Valley Community Health Centers which is an organization that provides dental care to those in need in our community.
My Doctorate of Dental Surgery was awarded by Marquette University School of Dentistry in Milwaukee, WI. Marquette is one of the top-ranked dental schools in the country, with a rigorous curriculum that constantly challenged me and provided an exceptional foundational understanding of the field.
However, dentistry – like all areas of healthcare – is constantly changing. I stay up-to-date on the latest technology and techniques, as well as research, through continuing education courses and participation in the Red River Valley Study Club.
Our patients deserve the most advanced treatment and care options: continuing education ensures we provide it.
