I practice prosthetic dentistry. It’s a privilege to work with so many wonderful patients throughout their lives. I appreciate the opportunity to help them meet some of life’s challenges, and joy once treatment is completed.

It's important to me to engage my patients in their care. Together, we can find health care approaches that best meet their individual needs. I enjoy accomplishing this while also maintaining best practices recommended by evidence-based dentistry.

Working at The Ohio State University allows me to have immediate access to the latest updates, including dental practice and research. The best in primary and specialty care co-management is here.

The OSU College of Dentistry also allows us to maintain a connection with the bright, enthusiastic minds that are the next generation of outstanding health care providers.

When I'm not on the job, I enjoy relaxing with my family and friends, biking and playing music.
