I was born and raised in Fairbanks. I attended the University of Arizona and then the University of Louisville School of Dentistry and graduated in 2004.
After moving back to Fairbanks in 2007, I joined my father’s practice. I became owner of my dad’s practice and have worked alongside him since. In 2019, I became a partner in Spruce Roots Family Dentistry. As a dentist, I love being able to help people make decisions about their health care and customize treatment that works with their wants and needs. Out of the office I enjoys hunting, fishing, hiking, snow-machining, skiing – basically anything that takes me to the great outdoors. I am a member of the American Dental Association, the International College of Dentists, the Pierre-Fuachard Academy and various local and national study clubs. I have volunteered for the Alaska Mission of Mercy and the Dental Lifeline Network. My passions are restorative, reconstructive and cosmetic dentistry. Helping someone achieve and maintain their desired level of health, comfort, function and esthetics gives me the greatest satisfaction.
