When I was a kid, I don’t remember braces being this much fun. In all three of our locations in Littleton, Centennial and Aurora, it is all about having a good time while creating smiles for our patients. This is how my staff and I have built such a great reputation with so many wonderful patients… with a little something called customer service.
- I was born and raised right here in Littleton Colorado, attending Littleton High School, followed by Colorado State University.
- After graduating, I attended the University of Colorado Dental School.
- I trained at St. Joseph Hospital in Denver, receiving advanced training in surgical based dentistry and finally moving on to UCLA in 1992 to get my degree in orthodontics.
- Orthodontics is an ever-changing field due to advances in technology. As a result, you will find me out of the office on occasion so that I can stay up-to-date. I receive continuing education every year in Invisalign®, LVI occlusion, and from The Gorman Institute as well as the American Association of Orthodontists.
I have been practicing orthodontics in my hometown of Littleton since I graduated with my specialty degree in orthodontics, where I live with my wife and four beautiful children. Colorado has to be one of the best places to live if you love outdoor activities like my family and I do.
I feel so lucky to practice what I love, therefore it is important to me to give back to those in need. I am currently on one of only three cleft lip and palate teams in the Rocky Mountain region where I treat a lot of kids who really have a need.
I have also traveled to third world countries to perform surgically based dentistry on kids who have nothing. I have been to most parts of the world, including Asia, South, and Central America and just recently Africa.
