I frequently say that I have a job that I love. It’s fun to come to work, and while the biggest part of that fun is to be a part of improving peoples’ lives and health, to help my patients is also totally fulfilling. I appreciate that our patients come to this office because of its constant drive to be the best, and I hope the joy we feel being a positive part of so many peoples’ lives is evident. The never-ending challenge of finding solutions to each individual’s needs provides a sense of achievement that I believe few people experience in their lifetimes.

Because my calling is to be the best that I can be as a dentist, I am constantly pursuing excellence in knowledge, skills, and technology for the ultimate benefit of my patients. I am presently a mentor at the Scottsdale Center for Dentistry, where we are exposed to all phases of dentistry. I am especially involved in using the CEREC® CAD/CAM technology for single-visit crown and bridge creation, as well as 3D X-rays and CT scans.
My training at the Pankey Institute elevated my knowledge and skill levels to enable me to strive for and more frequently achieve excellence in my patient care and relationships. In addition, my involvement with the CEREC doctors and Scottsdale Center for Dentistry has allowed me to associate and improve myself with dentists of a very high caliber. As a consultant with the Arizona State Board of Dental Examiners, I am trained to evaluate patient treatment in response to claims of dental malpractice or lack of standard of care.

Outside the Office
Originally from Casa Grande, I currently reside in Bullhead City with my wife Kelly. I have been blessed with six boys: Mark II, Joseph, Weylin, Hunter, Parker, and Cooper, and our princess, Ella. I am passionate about being the best husband and father I can be.
My free time is most often spent enjoying the outdoors with my family and friends, whether I’m hunting, camping, fishing, and riding off-road vehicles, or coaching my kids’ soccer and other sports teams. I’m also active in my community: I donate much-needed dental care to those without access, raise funds for the children and adults of our community, and serve on various organizations and boards.
