Meet the Doctor
Being an orthodontist allows me to watch my patients’ amazing transformations when their smiles are improved with orthodontic treatment. The excitement and anticipation that go along with the first visit, all the way to the amazing smiles at the end of treatment, are what make what I do worthwhile.
A native of Peoria, I moved back to my hometown after completing my orthodontic residency at St. Louis University in 1997. I’m a Bergan High School alumnus and a graduate of the University of Louisville Dental School. My wife, Michelle, is also a Central Illinois native and is a graduate of Woodruff High School and Bradley University. We have been married for 18 years and have three daughters. I love spending time with my family and enjoy boating, photography, flying radio-controlled aircraft, model trains, and recreational hockey. I’m a little “old school” when it comes to music, so you may hear some songs from the 80s when you visit our office.
As an orthodontist, I pride myself on providing my patients with state-of-the-art treatment techniques and equipment. I am a member of the American Association of Orthodontists, Illinois Society of Orthodontists, Illinois State Dental Society, Peoria District Dental Society, American Dental Association, and Orthodontic Education and Research Foundation. I also belong to several local dental study clubs and organizations.
I look forward to meeting you and helping you to a better smile!
