I believe that orthodontics cannot only be a great service to health, but also a life-changing cosmetic procedure. The goals of ideal treatment are similar for people of all ages: properly positioned jaw joints and beautifully aligned teeth that fit in harmony and promote healthy gum and bone tissues, appropriate airways, efficient chewing, and good lip support and facial balance.
Every patient is unique and has a special set of problems. Therefore, a personalized diagnosis and treatment plan is crucial. Proper planning can yield shortened treatment times, better results, and greater post-treatment stability. Long-term oral health is our primary goal, and we stop at nothing to achieve this for each of our patients.
Education, Continuing Education & Experience
I began my undergraduate career attending Weber State University in Ogden, Utah with a Chemistry degree and a minor in Spanish in three years. Afterword, I attended dental school at Virginia Commonwealth University and became part of the Gator Nation while attending University of Florida for orthodontic residency and a master’s degree. Annually I attend 30 to 40 hours of continuing education to stay abreast of new research and innovation. I am a select few that has had formal continuing education in Dental Forensics studying at University of Tennessee.
Most of my time as a practitioner of orthodontics since 2009 has been in the beautiful state of Wisconsin (Go Packers!).
I am a member of the following organizations
Outside the Office
I hail from a small rural farming town, Willard, Utah (hour north of Salt Lake City), I have two siblings living in Colorado, and I look forward to calling Fort Collins home.
My wife, Dana, and I have four beautiful, intelligent and funny children (our daughters Grace, Sadie, Hayden, and our son Samuel) and multiple pets (cat , dog, hamsters and fish). My wife and I met while I was living in Richmond, Va.
My interests are reading books, following politics, and taking in the great outdoors through backpacking and hiking both mountains and canyons, biking around town and skiing.
I volunteer with a division of the FBI to help missing and unidentified people. I also enjoy genealogy, specifically indexing of vital records to help others link their generations on their family tree. I look forward to getting to know and serve the people of Fort Collins, Windsor, Cheyenne, and Laramie and the surrounding areas.
