I am so excited and honored to join this wonderful practice and bring my experience and passion to treating the people of Kalamazoo. I was drawn to a career in dentistry because it blends science, health and art, but the personal connections it allows between doctor and patient is one of its most rewarding aspects. I look forward to building strong positive relationships with my patients and helping them achieve their oral health goals.

Education & Experience

I graduated with my B.S. from University of California Santa Cruz (Go Banana Slugs!), my M.S. in Biomedical Sciences from UMDNJ – Newark, and finally my DDS from University of Michigan.  I am passionate about bringing evidence-based dentistry to my daily practice, and love keeping up with new research and techniques through continuing education.

Outside the Office

My education has taken me all over the country, but Michigan became my home when I met my wife Amy while donating blood in Ann Arbor. We had our first child, Calvin, in 2018. When we aren’t chasing him around the house, Amy and I love to travel, hike, visit farmer’s markets, mountain bike, try to make the things we see on baking shows, and visit all the different craft breweries in Michigan. We have only lived in West Michigan for 3 years, but we have found so many wonderful places to explore and look forward to many more years of adventure here!
