"The best part of my job as a dentist is interacting with all the Woodbury patients, from the very young to the young at heart."
EDUCATION AND CONTINUING EDUCATION
In order to become a cosmetic and restorative dentist, I attained the following certificates:
For the past 34 years, I have taken many continuing education courses every year to stay up to date on the latest innovations. These emerging techniques positively affect people's dental health and how it relates to overall health. Everything I bring back from an educational experience helps to make things easier and more comfortable for our patients' dental visits, and also helps our patients live healthier lives.
"These people are my extended family. I never dread coming to work, but instead am having the time of my life!"
IN THE OFFICE
Our team is serious about taking care of people's health, but we also have a lot of fun! We spend a lot of time in our office, and it would be sad if we had to be stiff and all business. We love to have a good time and interact with the people we treat. If we are having a good time at work, it also helps our patients feel relaxed!
My team loves to interact with each unique patient. We love to joke around to put our patients at ease while they are here. Our long-term patients make my job especially rewarding. It's great to see kids grow up and explore the world, hear about trips that people take, and learn about what their kids or grandkids are doing, whether it is involvement in sports, weddings or new careers!
FAMILY AND COMMUNITY
I am a native of Monticello, Minnesota, and have lived in Woodbury for the past 24 years. My wife of 35 years, Dawn, and I have two children: a daughter named Emily and a son, Erik. In my spare time, I enjoy walking, reading, cooking, dining out, and travel. I am also a certified sci-fi geek, and love Star Wars and Star Trek!
My community is important to me. I am involved with my church's long-range planning committee, and I sing in both the men's choir and full choir. For the last 9 years, my wife and I have sponsored a child through Friends of Africa.
If you ever have any dental questions or concerns, please contact the office to set up an appointment. I look forward to meeting you and helping you attain a beautiful smile!
"I love dentistry! Patients bring variety to the day, and the technical aspect can be very challenging and rewarding at the same time."
EDUCATION AND CONTINUING EDUCATION
In order to become a dentist, I acquired the following certificates:
My profession changes at a constant rate as new technologies evolve. I know it is essential that I take continuing education courses to stay current with the latest products and techniques. I use this new knowledge to help enhance the oral and overall health of our patients. It is exciting to see the advancements taking place in dentistry and how they can improve the services we provide every day!
"I also appreciate the artistic side of dentistry, and take pride in providing my Woodbury patients with beautiful, high quality care."
IN THE OFFICE
As dentists, we are able to build relationships with patients as we provide their dental treatment. These relationships are the reason we are here. Every patient has their own unique story, and I love hearing what makes each patient special.
