Giving people great, confident smiles has been a passion of mine since I was young. My twin brother and I both followed in our father’s footsteps and became dentists.
I grew up in Fort Deposit, Alabama and graduated from Auburn University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Predentistry before receiving my D.M.D. from the University of Alabama at Birmingham in 1978. I established a private practice in Auburn in 1979 and also spent part time in my father’s dental practice in Fort Deposit. My education and professional development have never slowed down. I have attended The Foundation for Advanced Education, The Nash Institute for Dental Learning, Spear Dental Learning Center, and the Aesthetic Alliance Study Club and numerous continuing education courses.
I am a member of the American Dental Association (ADA) and the Ninth District Dental Society.
My wife, Dana, and I have three children Andrew, Christopher, and Diana. We enjoy a growing family and grab every chance we get to spend time with our five grandchildren. We attend Covenant Presbyterian Church and have been on several mission trips with our church. I enjoy traveling, golfing, hunting, and following college football.
I am passionate about helping our patients have a healthy, gorgeous smile that they can confidently display throughout their life. As someone who has undergone extensive dental treatment, I put great focus on providing comfortable care in a supportive environment to help our patients achieve the oral health and smile they deserve.
I grew up in Asheville, North Carolina and graduated from Auburn University in 2008 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Zoology (Pre-Health) before receiving my D.M.D. from the University of Alabama at Birmingham in 2016. Following dental school, I completed an Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency where I gained extensive training in dental implant placement, bone grafting procedures, IV moderate sedation, as well as other areas of general dentistry.
Professional education is a lifelong process. I am currently a member of the American Dental Association (ADA), Ninth District Dental Society of Alabama, Academy of General Dentistry(AGD), and American Academy of Implant Dentistry(AAID), and am actively working towards fellowships in the AGD and AAID.
Away from the office I enjoy spending time with my wife, Brett, and our daughter, June, as well as the rest of my large family. Additionally, we attend Church of the Highlands and enjoy being active in a variety of ways, reading, traveling, and continuing to be involved in the Auburn community.
