Dentistry has been a major source of pride in my life, secondary only to my family. I have developed many friendships with patients and have been blessed to be able to help them achieve optimal dental health by restoring esthetics and function. I look forward to working with my son, Matthew, and sharing my passion for dentistry with him.

Outside the Office
I was born in Oakland, CA but have lived in Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, and Arizona before settling in Santa Rosa in 1977. My wife of nearly 40 years, Marci, and I have three children, Kevin, Lindsay, and Matthew, and four grandchildren. I am passionate about living a full life. When time allows I love to travel, play golf, ride my bike, and read.
