Meet the Doctors

Dentist in Arlington, WA


I was born and raised right here in Arlington Washington. Our office is located on our family homestead and is the same land my great grandpa used to farm.  I graduated from Arlington High School in 1994.  I was an all league linebacker, running back, and record holder in the Discus for almost a decade. After high school I attended the University of Idaho, and played linebacker for their football team!  After three seasons, I decided to focus on getting into Dental School and transfered to WSU.

In 1998, I graduated Cum Laude from Washington State University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Zoology.  I then attended Dental School at the University of Washington and graduated in 2003.

I truly love serving our community.  My wife, Heidi, and I have three kids Emily, Eric, and Blake. In my spare time, I enjoy participating in my kids activites.  I am the Cubmaster of Pack 29 in Arlington Wa.  I also enjoy watching my kids play sports, participate in dance and cheer leading.  I am an active member of the Rotary Club of Arlington, Paul Harris Fellow, and I will be the Arlington Rotary Club President in 2020-2021.

I love helping people achieve a healthy and beautiful smile. My favorite thing to do is provide dentistry that exceeds a patient’s expectations. It is very rewarding to be able to meet and treat so many different people from my hometown.


To provide my patients with the most advanced treatment and techniques, I continuously attend advanced education courses. I am a member of the Inland Empire Perio Study Club which has given me extensive hands-on training with implants, bone grafting, and soft tissue procedures. I am a candidate for my mastership in Academy of General Dentistry, and have completed their requirement of over 1500 hours of continuing education.  I am a proud member of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, and American Dental Association.  I have completed the Spear advanced dental curriculum which has provided advanced training in complex cases and some excellent courses in cosmetic dental procedures and techniques.


I find it really rewarding to help people achieve optimal dental health and help them achieve a smile they always wanted. Our team takes a preventative approach and enjoys helping our patients achieve optimal dental health. Each patient is very special to us. I love meeting new people and hearing about everyone’s different life experiences.

We want to provide our patients with a truly relaxing dental experience. Outside of our operatory windows, we have a wetland with bird feeders. It is relaxing and fun to see the different birds and animals that decide to come and visit. Our team also likes to do things for our community both inside and outside our office. Our practice has several team members that volunteer their time to charitable dental care.  Our dental team also selects one charitable organization each month and donates 20% of every new patient exam towards helping the Arlington, Wa community.
