I am a firm believer that a pediatric dentist's job is to help children achieve the best dental health possible through treatment free of pain and tears. There is no reason that any dental treatment should be a fearful or scary experience. Before we even touch a tooth, my number one goal is always to provide a positive dental experience. By doing this we find that even our most reluctant patients are soon the ones that cannot wait to come back.
Educated and Committed to Your Comfort
I received my Bachelor's degree in Microbiology at the University of Georgia and have been a Big Dawg fan ever since. I then attended the Medical College of Georgia's dental school, which is also where I served my pediatric dental residency. Throughout my entire education, I learned to value the comfort of my patients and their families. I am especially sensitive to my patients with special needs, and I am involved with patients and community organizations that focus on people with conditions such as autism and childhood cancers.
A Fear-Free Zone
I love the energy children bring with them and their creative views on the world. I am constantly amazed by how smart they are and how brave they can be. One of my goals in each treatment is helping build a patients' confidence.
In my office, every effort is made to make this a positive experience. We provide a relaxed environment, and the team, who has been with me from day one, is dedicated to making your time with us comfortable. The greatest joy I can experience is getting an anxious patient through a procedure that they themselves didn't believe could be so easy. The surprise and joy on their faces gives the entire office a great deal of satisfaction.
Happy in Georgia
As a native of Marietta GA, I have always enjoyed living here. My wife, Ashley, is a general dentist in Suwanee and we have three young boys, ages seven, four and two. I also enjoy spending time with family, running, traveling, and watching Georgia football.
