I am passionate about dentistry for children and helping them reap the benefits of healthy teeth and a great-looking smile for life! If there’s one thing I hope to accomplish in my career, it’s helping all of my young patients learn to love visiting the dentist. There’s absolutely no reason a dental appointment should be intimidating. When children realize that seeing the dentist can be relaxing and enjoyable, they pay closer attention to their teeth and gums between visits. It’s my job to help children learn and understand the real benefits of excellent oral health.
When I’m not in the office, I enjoy staying active with my wife and son. We appreciate living so close to St. Louis and exploring all the city has to offer. We are avid Cardinals fans and cheer on the team at every possible chance! The top of my list of favorite things includes: everything having to do with Marvel Universe, traveling, spending time with friends and family, and seeing my patients and their families around town.
