I was born & raised in the Springfield, IL area. After three years of undergraduate studies at SIU-E in Edwardsville, Illinois I eagerly started my four year dental program. I graduated from Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine in June of 1998 where I earned my Dental Medicine Doctorate. I am a member of the Illinois State Dental Society (ISDS) and am Past President of the Decatur District of the ISDS.
I spent the first three years of my dental profession in Springfield, IL. I have enjoyed practicing family and cosmetic dentistry in Decatur since 2001 and am looking forward to many more.
I am passionate about helping those unable to afford dental care independently receive the vital services they need. For the past several years I have participated in the Mission of Mercy and the Give Kids a Smile Program. These programs allow me to give back to our community in a very important way. My beautiful wife Cheryl and I have two wonderful boys Clayton and Caleb. Together we enjoy snow skiing, salt water fishing and traveling. I am very active in the community. I feel like I benefit greatly from my patients, staff and this community. I am strongly rooted here and happily support and sponsor many wonderful charities and events.
A sincere “Thank You” to all of our loyal patients from over the years and “Welcome” to any of you who are considering joining our dental family. I am honored to continue providing ethical, safe, comfortable dentistry with a variety of treatment options.
