Why I Love Teeth
I’ve been associated with Dentistry since my last year in high school where I was a tech apprentice in a commercial dental laboratory. There were many intricate phases of the laboratory work, and I loved it. I served in the United States Air Force and was responsible for several dental labs at four different bases.
After I was discharged, I went to school, earned my D.D.S. degree, and have been practicing ever since. That adds up to over 61 years, and I have enjoyed every minute of it!

♦ We take our teeth for granted, but without them we cannot chew, it’s difficult to speak and our overall health is negatively impacted.
♦ Neglect is expensive, in both cost and health. Dentures are not a replacement for your teeth; they reduce your ability to chew by 80%. And implants depend on having good bone.
♦ Be persistent in regular check-ups. This ensures good oral health and stops small issues from becoming big problems.
What Makes Me Smile
♦ I primarily serve as an adviser today. But I love when I hear that the procedure I did on one of my patient’s mouth, is still working 25 years later.
♦ I’ve always enjoyed dentistry and the association with other dentists. I’m very fortunate because my son is a Dentist and that provides a great way to stay involved.
