I love being an orthodontist. The change that I see in patients from the time they enter our office to when they leave makes every day a great day. Having patients walk away with beautiful smiles and confidence makes me love what I do.
I consider myself privileged to get to see our patients’ confidence grow as they achieve the smile of their dreams. I also really love seeing a patient’s excitement about the movement of their teeth as their bite improves.
Our staff in Sacramento, Modesto, Roseville, and Placerville feels like a family and we are able to work together as one team. We all like meeting new people. When patients walk in the door, they become a member of our family. We love to laugh and hope to always leave a patient with a big smile on their face.

Family and Free Time
My wife, Megan, and I have been married for over ten years and she is truly the love of my life. We live in Sacramento with our four children, one daughter and three sons. They keep us on our toes and enjoying life every day. Our family loves to explore the beautiful area that we live in by camping, hiking, and enjoying the outdoors. We spend a lot of time together as a family and are always looking for an adventure. When I have a few extra minutes, my sons and I can always be found fishing.
Personally, I am passionate about changing people's lives. If I have the opportunity to volunteer in the community or help those in need, I take it as a privilege to be able to share a little bit of joy. There is so much good in the world today, and I want to help others see that and make a difference in the lives of others.
Sacramento is really a great place to live and we consider ourselves fortunate to be a part of this community. My involvement in our church and the Boy Scouts means a great deal to me.
