Confidence Starts With a Smile
All of my life I have had a passion for making beautiful things. This is what drew me into the art of orthodontics. There is something deeply satisfying about creating a beautiful smile. Watching my patient’s confidence and self-worth increase over the course of their treatment is very rewarding for me. Very few people get to change people’s lives for a living. I consider myself lucky to be able to say that, and am equally lucky to love what I do. I feel extremely blessed to be a part of the orthodontic community and am excited to be a part of such a wonderful orthodontic team.

One of the best things about orthodontics is that it is an ever-evolving field. In order to stay up-to-date on the latest technologies and techniques, I attend conferences and classes to keep both my knowledge and skills current. This allows me to provide the most cutting edge services and treatments possible for my patients.

I was born and raised in Provo, Utah. After completing college at Brigham Young University, my wife Rebecca and I moved to Houston, Texas where I completed both dental school and my orthodontic residency. Rebecca and I recently welcomed our first son, Atticus, into our family.
When I’m not working, or spending time with my family or three cats (Ruben, Oliver and Stella), you’ll likely find me enjoying one of my many hobbies: woodworking, insect collecting, coin collecting, book making, paper marbling, armature astronomy, or exploring nature.
