While living in Milwaukee with my wife and newborn son, I graduated from Marquette University in 1972. I joined the U.S. Air Force and served as a captain in the dental division of Scott Air Force base near St. Louis, Missouri. After serving in the Air Force our family of four, soon to be five, moved to Pierce County where we still reside. Shortly after moving to the area my dental practice gradually evolved from traditional dentistry into a more holistic philosophy. During my first five years of private practice in Ellsworth, WI. I came to believe that there was more to dentistry than what I had been taught.
I began a path of continuing education that has taken me through advanced training in TMJ therapy, orthopedic orthodontics, cranial sacral therapy, bodywork / massage, nutrition, pain management, safe amalgam removal, biological / environmental dentistry, and more. I am still on that path of continuing education and I learn more all the time, spending 200 – 300 hours in class every year. Recently I’ve been publishing original material in article and textbook formats, as well as creating education materials for doctors and patients.
I’m looking forward to our new office, and being able to give our patients even better care. Caring for my patients and helping them reach their health goals is what drives me everyday.
