I enjoy dentistry for many reasons. Meeting new patients and helping them stay healthy is very rewarding. The technical aspects of repairing and restoring teeth and smiles are fun and challenging. I grew up in Fort Wayne and graduated from Northrop High School. I then attended Indiana University and the Indiana University School of Dentistry. I have been practicing in Fort Wayne since 1990. I have volunteered at Matthew 25 Dental Clinic since 1984. My wife, Tracy, and I have been married for 30 years and have three children, Tom, Jessica and Jennifer.
