As third-generation dentist, it has been my pleasure to have served the Memphis community for the past 30 years, the same as my father and grandfather before me. I enjoy providing a service that changes lives.
EDUCATION AND EXPERIENCE
I graduated from Memphis University School in 1974 and completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. I earned my Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University of Tennessee in 1981 and my Master of Science in orthodontics at the University of Tennessee in 1983.
I pride myself in staying abreast of the latest advancements in orthodontics to ensure that my patients receive the most up-to-date care. To stay on the cutting edge, I am involved with several professional organizations:
FAMILY AND COMMUNITY
My life outside the office revolves around my family. I have been blessed with a wonderful wife, five children, and eight grandchildren. I also love the outdoors. I often spend time at the lake in the summer, play golf, and love waterfowl hunting in the winter.
Just as passionate as I am about my family, I am also passionate about strengthening my community and participating in mission work. I have been blessed in so many ways, and it is with great satisfaction that I give back.
Professionally, I have been and am still involved in mission trips to provide dental care in other countries for people in extreme need. I will be going to Africa and Honduras this next year. For the past 30 years, I have also provided care for the children at the Tennessee Baptist Children’s Home. On a more personal note, I am involved in leading Bible study at a halfway house for people who have just been released from prison.
