My Role at McMinnville Dentistry for Kids

To provide high quality pediatric dental care in a gentle way that makes it as comfortable and easy as possible for kids and their parents.

My Family

I am married to my wonderful wife Tina. We love and are proud of our five children- three boys and two girls. We are also excited to have just welcomed our first grandchild into the family (a beautiful little girl)!

My Background and Education

I grew up in a very small town near the Utah/Idaho border (population 904!) As a kid I learned how to work hard moving irrigation pipe, hauling hay and milking cows on a dairy farm. For fun, I spent a lot of time riding quads as well as fishing and hiking in the mountains with my brothers and my dad.

After earning a Bachelor of Science in Psychology in 1993 from Brigham Young University I went on to earn a Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree from Creighton University (Omaha, Nebraska) in 1997.

After a few years of practicing as a general dentist, I completed a two-year residency program and earned a post-doctoral specialty certificate in Pediatric Dentistry from Children’s Hospital Medical Center in Cincinnati, Ohio in 2001.

My Favorite Teams to Cheer for are

The Seattle Seahawks and The Nebraska Cornhuskers (and when it’s Civil War time…I always cheer for the Beav’s!)

My Favorite Movie is

Napoleon Dynamite

My Favorite Books Are

Surprised by Joy and The Four Loves…. both are by C.S. Lewis.
Also, all of Louis L’Amour’s westerns (I’m pretty sure I’ve read all 89 of them).

My Dream Vacation Would Be

A full week of camping, fishing and hiking with my family at Lost Lake in the Mount Hood National Forest.
