Thank you, Tulsa Area, for voting me the #1 Orthodontist!
I love orthodontics and the opportunity it gives me to change people’s lives. Whether people come to us wanting me to give them the smile they have always desired or allow them to chew their food better, I never get tired of seeing the end result.
I grew up in Broken Arrow and after graduating from high school, I attended Harding University in Searcy, Arkansas, on an academic and football scholarship. While at Harding, I was lucky enough to meet my future wife, Amy, during our first semester. In 1996, I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. After teaching high school math and science for two years, I began my dental school training at the University of Mississippi Dental School in Jackson, Mississippi. I graduated with honors, receiving my Doctorate of Medical Dentistry in 2002. After dental school, Amy and I moved to New Orleans where I attended my orthodontic residency at the Louisiana State University School of Dentistry. In 2004, after two years of specialized training, I received my Certificate in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics from LSU.
After graduation, we moved back to Oklahoma where I have had the pleasure of practicing orthodontics since 2004. I enjoy participating in mission trips including time spent in the Ukraine, Belize, Mexico, Honduras, and New Orleans. In Tulsa I am an active participant in many professional organizations including serving as the President of the Oklahoma Orthodontic Society.
In 2012, I opened a midtown location near Utica Square offering Tulsans the opportunity to have Friday appointments. In 2018, we moved into our new state of the art facility in Broken Arrow.
I have been blessed with many things since moving back to Oklahoma, including living near my family, attending a dynamic church, and having four wonderful children. Best of all, Amy still takes good care of me when she is not doing her “other” job as a local pediatrician!
