On Being an Orthodontist
I went to school for many years because I loved the idea of working in a field where I can help people every day. Witnessing the joy on a patient’s face when they get their braces off and see their new beautiful smile is what being an orthodontist is all about. Every day I get to meet new people and help them obtain the most incredible smile they can.
I love the frequent interaction I have with my patients, which allows me to get to know them on a personal level, and be a part of their lives. I look forward to their visits, the news they can’t wait to tell me, and the conversations we share.
Creating amazing smiles, and watching each person evolve from being self-conscious about their teeth to showing off their smile at the end of treatment, is the most rewarding aspect of my career. The fact that I am transforming the life of someone I care about makes my work even more wonderful.

As an orthodontist, it’s essential I stay at the forefront of developments in the field, from emerging technologies to revolutionary materials and new treatment processes. My patients depend on me to provide them with the highest level of care and care options, and it is incumbent on me to ensure they receive it. Through active participation in local study clubs, and attendance at meetings and lectures for the American Association of Orthodontists and the American Dental Association, I am able to constantly learn and then apply that knowledge to the care I deliver.
I’m a native of Fairfield, having moved back here in 2014. My wife Loren and I were married in 2010; we have a lovely daughter, Josephine, and two dogs, Woody and Wendy. While being with my family is always my first choice when I’m not caring for patients, I also enjoy golfing, boating, bonfires, grilling, and hanging out with friends.
