I grew up in Wayzata, Minnesota and stayed for my dental training at the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry. Minneapolis was a great city but I wanted to move to the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I chose the vibrant Portland, Oregon area and feel fortunate to call it home. I completed a general practice residency at the Oregon Health and Science University and was trained to manage patients with special needs and medical complexities in ambulatory and hospital setting.
I am thrilled to have settled in Portland with my wife and our dog (Chase). We enjoy exploring the beautiful Northwest on hikes, camping trips, and visits to the Oregon Coast.
I am dedicated to providing evidence-based dental care, as well as educating my patients on ways to prevent future dental problems. I believe prevention is key to a healthy smile and body.
