After completing my undergraduate degree at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, I graduated from the University of Tennessee College of Dentistry and have been practicing dentistry in Chattanooga for over thirty years. The practice of dentistry has been a wonderful career for me as I have been able to improve the lives of many people. I enjoy being on the cutting edge of dentistry and am constantly learning and implementing many new procedures and techniques. I have been married for over thirty years and enjoy playing trumpet in two bands, boating, and spending time with my family and friends.
Continuing education is very important in the ever changing field of dentistry. Over the years I have continued to advance my learning in order to improve my personal skill set, and to give patients the best options in current dental care. I have earned fellowships from The Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation and from The Las Vegas Institute. I have also completed a residency in implant placement from The Alabama Implant Education program at the Foundry. I have completed IV sedation training at Montefiore Hospital in The Bronx, New York. Additionally, I coach other dentists in improving their practices through Sunrise Dental Solutions, and have received several awards from this organization including the Most Outstanding Practice.
