About Your Dentist
"There is nothing else I would rather do than improve people's lives through excellent dental care. While it is always my goal to offer high-quality dental care, I feel my job is so much more than that. It's about building relationships with people and truly becoming a part of their lives. The unique individuals I have as patients make my job not just rewarding, but also a lot of fun. After 28 years of practicing, I still love dentistry as much as I did when I first started, and I look forward to many more years to come."

Continuing Education / Professional Excellence
"I love learning and challenging myself with new things. I feel my patients deserve only the best care I can offer, and through continuing education, I am able to provide that. I have kept my main focus on improving my clinical skills and those of my team, especially in the area of cosmetic dentistry. Training through the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies has also given me greater insight into the world of state-of-the-art dental procedures. We study to become more efficient and more comfortable with continued improvement in quality and technology."
Outside the Office
"I am originally from Haynesville, Louisiana, and currently reside in Longview, Texas with my wife and five amazing children. When I'm not at work, I am probably spending time with my family. I love my Starbucks coffee, along with the newspaper or a good book. I enjoy traveling, hunting, fishing, and golfing. I have played piano since I was 8 years old and continue to do so at my local church!
My faith in God is the key to my life. I serve at my local church and volunteer my time with the House of Disciples. Both of these places give me a chance to encourage others as well as make a difference in my community. Helping others is why I entered the dental field, but it encompasses the rest of my life as well."
