Our motto at Parkview Dental is “building smiles and relationships”. It’s always rewarding to change someone’s life through their smile or relieving their pain or their fear. I would like to think that my patients see me as someone that genuinely cares for them as a person. I know the relationships that I have built at Parkview Dental are what motivate me to be my best every day.
I was born in Springfield, IL, but I spent the majority of my childhood in Marion where my parents still reside. After graduating from Marion High School, I attended the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana. Anyone who gets to know me knows that I bleed orange and blue! I continued on to Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine in Alton for my Doctorate of Dental Medicine and worked in Belleville for four years before opening Parkview Dental.
I believe it is important to stay current on the newest advancements in materials, instrumentation, and technology. Very recently, I upgraded my office with CEREC® technology that can fabricate crowns and restorations in minutes! The innovations I have learned about since completing my formal education have vastly improved the quality of care I am able to provide to my patients, and it’s what they deserve.
My wife, Amy, and I currently live in Swansea with our two children, Lauren and Evan, and our new puppy, Macy. When I am not working I am usually spending time with my kids and their activities but when I get a chance I love to play golf and cheer for the University of Illinois sports teams. I am also involved in sports programs in Swansea and Columbia, on both the coaching and sponsorship level. It’s important for me to make a difference in people’s lives, both in and out of the office.
