Dentistry is my passion. My patients come to me with unique concerns and problems. Dentistry allows me to address and treat those issues while building a lasting relationship with each person.
Being a dentist means having the ability to get someone out of dental pain. It’s also the ability to correct how a person’s mouth functions, improving or restoring their bite and ability to comfortably chew. And it’s the ability to make a smile beautiful, transforming how a person feels about themselves, too.
In the years I’ve been practicing, I’ve had the opportunity to meet and care for many remarkable people. Our conversations and the friendships that have grown between us are the most rewarding aspect of dentistry. I spend my days helping my friends improve their lives through the care I provide. What could be better?
My Doctorate of Dental Surgery was awarded by the West Virginia University School of Dentistry. While my formal schooling provided an excellent foundational knowledge of dentistry, dentistry is a constantly changing field. Continuing education is essential if I am to provide patients with the best treatment, using the most current techniques and technology.
I have studied many areas of dentistry, including cosmetic, dental implants, oral surgery, facial pain prevention, and oral health, as well as infection control and sterilization. I prefer hands-on training with the most respected clinicians in these fields.
I grew up in Moundsville, WV and have called Glen Dale home for almost 40 years. I’ve been happily married for 37 years. We have three daughters, five grandsons, and two granddaughters.
