My father, aunt, grandfather and uncle were all dentists. Some say dentistry is what we do! I grew up at the family practice and was able to witness the impact of a healthy smile. I knew early on that dentistry was meant for me. Through my dental training at Case Western Reserve University and University Hospitals Rainbow Babies and Children’s, I learned how valuable a healthy smile is to a child and their self-confidence. One of my favorite things about what I do is helping kids feel comfortable in their own unique smiles!
I truly care about the patients and families I work with and making sure your child’s experience is the best it can be. The truth is dentistry is tough for a lot of people-not just kids. I still remember as a kid being uncomfortable in the dental chair while getting an impression and the dentist was my dad! We all have these stories that make us feel vulnerable at the dentist and I pride myself on making your child feel understood and comfortable with me.
When I am not practicing pediatric dentistry, you can find me with my wife Jamie and our baby boy Brady. We love to spend time outdoors and finding new places throughout Columbus to explore. However, most of the time our weekend adventure is back to Target for more diapers!
I feel very lucky to be able to work with children from a young age and see them grow up over the years. A smile is something we wear every day and I look forward to helping your child have confidence in their own!
