Cosmetic dentistry is all about helping you achieve a smile you feel proud to share. It includes treatments and procedures that enhance the appearance of your teeth, making them look whiter, straighter, and more aligned. Whether it's fixing chips, stains, or gaps, cosmetic dentistry focuses on giving you the confident smile you've always wanted.

  • Teeth Whitening
  • Porcelain Veneers
  • Clear Aligners

Preventive dentistry focuses on keeping your teeth healthy and strong by stopping problems before they start. It involves regular check-ups, cleanings, and learning how to take care of your teeth properly at home. By staying proactive with preventive dentistry, you can maintain a bright, healthy smile for years to come.

  • Professional Teeth Cleaning
  • Oral Cancer Screenings
  • Gum Disease Therapy

Restorative dentistry is about fixing and restoring your teeth if they're damaged or missing due to decay, accidents, or other reasons. Dentists use different treatments to repair your teeth and make them strong and healthy again, so you can eat and smile with confidence. It's all about getting your teeth back in shape and helping you maintain a beautiful, functional smile.

    On Being a Dentist

    Dentistry is more than a job. I believe oral healthcare providers have a mission to alleviate pain and help build beautiful smiles, one person at a time. In doing so, we improve the health of our communities and the lives of our friends and neighbors. As a dentist, I am honored to make real, positive changes in peoples’ lives, whether I’m helping them reach better oral health or making them more comfortable with the appearance of their smile, their lives are better because of the care I am able to provide.

    Our practice is focused on building long-term relationships with our patients and their families. Getting to know each person, sharing stories, and hearing about their experiences, their interests, and their passions, allows me to become part of their life and they become friends. I am constantly honored by the trust our patients place in our practice, by referring us to friends and bringing their family members to see us. It is humbling, and we strive to exceed their expectations.

    Education and Commitment to Continuing Education

    I attended college at the University of Missouri, Oral Roberts University, and Southwest Missouri State University, and was awarded my Doctorate of Dental Surgery with honors from the University of Missouri Kansas City School of Dentistry.

    Each year I complete in excess of 60 hours of continuing education courses in order to stay up to date with the latest developments in dentistry and oral healthcare. This ensures I am able to deliver the highest quality of care consistently, and the newest proven treatments to my patients.

    Personal Life

    I was raised in Missouri and moved to Pittsburg, KS more than 35 years ago, when I finished dental school. Now I share my life with my lovely wife, Jeannette. Three children, Brandon, Joshua, and Danielle, as well as five grandchildren and assorted horses, dogs, and the occasional buffalo round out the family. I love spending time with the family and chasing the grandchildren. I also enjoy horseback riding, fishing, and operating heavy equipment: I have a passion for climbing on a bulldozer or excavator and removing something other than decay.

    I believe in giving back to and supporting our community. I am active in politics to ensure that everyone receives excellent medical, dental, and mental health care, and founded the first Community Health Dental Clinic in Southeast Kansas in 2003. Additionally, 30% of our practice is dedicated to caring for the underserved in our community, to make sure that children, the mentally challenged, and those who are frail or elderly are able to receive gentle, professional dental care.

They even called us to say they were running ahead, I know right, and if we wanted to come in ahead of our appointment time they could get us right in.
