I feel very blessed to have been given gifts that allow me to serve people in my community every day. My profession allows me to give back to a community that has given so much to me. It feels good to be able to do things for patients that they never dreamed possible. It is exciting and rewarding to take a patient that is anxious about a dental visit and actually makes them look forward to coming into the office! To be able to change the way people feel about themselves, and make some people smile for the first time, is really what dentistry is all about.

OUTSIDE THE OFFICE
I am a proud native of Paducah, and so happy to have spent my life and career in such a wonderful community. My wife and practice partner, Kathy, have been married for over 30 years. We have two daughters, Kristen and Paige, a son-in-law named Kip, and a grandson named Maddox. Our dogs, Annie and Nemo, keep our hands full at home.
My free time is spent playing lots of golf, traveling, cycling, and training for a half marathon with Kathy. I am also a huge UK basketball & St. Louis Cardinals baseball fan! Kathy and I are members of First Baptist Church in Paducah. Through the church, I’ve been on foreign mission trips, during which I’ve had the privilege of serving in Central and South America as a dentist.
