It is a pleasure and an honor to help the people in the Cedar Valley community get the smile they deserve. The people in this area are the best, and I love creating beautiful smiles for them and watching them get excited as their appearance and confidence change. Along with my team, we take care of our patients as if they were members of our family.
Education and Experience
- Undergraduate degree, psychology – University of Iowa
- Doctorate of Dental Surgery – University of Iowa College of Dentistry
- Master of Science and orthodontic certificate – Mayo Clinic
Since I am an active member of numerous professional organizations, I have many opportunities to continue my education through courses and seminars on the newest and most effective orthodontic technology. In addition to being board certified by the American Board of Orthodontics, I am also a member of the American Dental Association, the American Association of Orthodontists, the Iowa Society of Orthodontists, and the Black Hawk County Dental Society.
In the Community
I firmly believe it is my calling to help out in our community. I am strongly active in my church, serve on the executive board for the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Cedar Valley, and am a past president of the Iowa Association of Orthodontists. I also participate by sponsoring many local sports and fundraising events that help to improve our area.
Outside the Office
I grew up and graduated from high school in Mason City and currently live in Cedar Falls. My wife Brooke and I have been married almost 20 years. We have two daughters, McKenna and Kate, a son named Cullen, and a dog, Maizy. I love to spend time with my family most of all, but when I have free time, I also enjoy hunting, fishing, playing golf, and watching college sports.
