After receiving my Doctorate in Dental Surgery, I came to Covington to work with Dr. Russell, my uncle. In August of 2010, I married the love of my life, Kelly. Together, we enjoy hiking, playing soccer, and travelling. Currently, I am a member of the Seattle-King County Dental Society, Washington State Dental Association, American Dental Association, and the Southshore branch of the Seattle Study Club. By staying up-to-date with the latest research and technology, and combining that with tried-and-true methods, I strive to achieve the highest level of quality the dental profession has to offer. I believe the key to that quality is communication. Working with patients on an individual basis to develop a treatment plan that suits their specific needs and desires is the approach that I believe will best serve the people of Covington and the surrounding area. Together, you and I can achieve and sustain a healthy, beautiful smile.
