I was 12 years old when I decided I wanted to be a dentist. I was blessed to have a mother who was a dental hygienist that quit her own practice of dentistry to be my mom but never lost her love of the profession. I had great friends and examples that encouraged my education and dreams. My college years allowed me to pursue my love and amazement of the human body, the relationships of loving people, and the environment that surrounds us.
I chose to specialize in pediatric dentistry because I get to be involved with children all day long and help them to grow and be healthy.
We invite and encourage parents to be involved in this process and try to teach families a better way of life. Sure, times can be very challenging, but I have resolved that a tender heart, kindness, and compassion help to make friends and better patients as opposed to being a mean or scary authoritarian that forces children to behave because of fear. We get to work with the greatest clientele in the world and even when things get tough, they are willing to give you a fist bump or a hug when we finish our work.
I love the outdoors and participate in many outdoor sporting and recreational activities. I love to run and challenge my mind and body with endurance races. I have completed over 100 marathons or ultra-marathons and this is my guilty pleasure after a hard day of work. I have a long affiliation with Boy Scouting and love to teach youth, for in them is where our future lies.
My greatest job in life is being a dad. I have 4 children and the most wonderful wife, who supports my craziness. I am a very blessed man, and I thank you for considering our practice as you look for a dental professional to take care of your precious children.
Pediatric dentistry is the best job in the whole world. With the specialty of pediatric dentistry, we are able to use new, state-of-the-art and “tried and true” techniques to provide a dental environment that children can thrive in. I love the emphasis that is placed on child growth and development. Each child is special with individual needs. This makes for a vibrant, stimulating, and rewarding environment to practice the art and science of pediatric dental medicine.
I received my bachelor’s degree from Brigham Young University in 1982, my Doctor of Dental Medicine from Medical College of Virginia/Virginia Commonwealth University in 1987, and my pediatric dental specialty training from Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center in 1989.
Outside of dentistry, most of my interests are located out of doors. Utah provides a wealth of incredible recreational activities. Winter brings skiing and snowboarding in the mountains of Utah and Canada. In the spring and fall, I love to explore Utah canyons, both on motorcycles and hiking to remote canyon areas. Summer finds me boating the Utah lakes with my children and grandchildren. I also love tending to my garden and vineyard.
I’m grateful to our patients and staff and want to publicly thank everyone who has made Provo Pediatric Dentistry such a great place for oral care for the parents and the children (yes, even the teenagers!). My talented partner, our very competent staff of pediatric assistants, and I wish you all the best and welcome you to our practice. You are the best!
