I grew up in the farm country of Southern California and moved to the Seattle area in 1995 after I married my sweetheart, Brooke. I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Washington in Cell and Molecular Biology and Finnish. I also earned my dental degree from the University of Washington School of Dentistry. Upon graduating from dental school, I enlisted in the United States Air Force as a medical officer in the Dental Corps. While in the military, I attended specialty residency training at Keesler Air Force Base Medical Center. This advanced training included; Oral Medicine, Oral Surgery, Endodontics, Prosthodontics, and Pedodontics.
My family and I moved to Bainbridge Island directly from my last military assignment in Turkey. Together with my wife and five children, we are proud and involved members of our community. Additionally, I maintain my service in the Air Force as an active reservist and enjoy serving my country and wear proudly the uniform. I look forward to working with a wonderful staff and meeting with patients at our office.
