Upon graduating from Wagoner High School in 1978, I attended Oral Roberts University until 1982 and was accepted after into the University of Oklahoma College of Dentistry. The degree of Doctor of Dental Surgery was conferred in 1986.
I began my Tulsa practice in 1988, taking the reigns from Dr. Earl Edwards upon his retirement and have been involved in the dental community since that time. In addition I have served on numerous committees, as president of Eastern Oklahoma Donated Dental Services for eight years up until now, and currently as the District Two Member on the Oklahoma Board of Dentistry.
My medical career was paralleled by a delightful family life. My wife Charlene, to whom I have been very happily married for 23 years, is a registered hygienist who works along side with me from time to time at the practice and spends the rest of her time being a great mom to our two daughters.
