I was first exposed to dentistry during high school, by shadowing my uncle at his practice. I loved the idea of working with my hands while creating relationships with people, and I still looks forward to these aspects of dentistry every day. It gives me gratitude to develop good relationships with patients while providing high quality oral health care.
I grew up in Red Wing, MN, and pursued my education in Minneapolis. I married my wife, Chelsea in 2014 shortly before starting a General Practice Residency at the University of Minnesota. While in my residency, I was active in all aspects of dental care to patients awaiting chemotherapy/radiation treatment for head/neck cancer, solid organ transplant, and bone marrow transplants in addition caring for people with complex medical problems.
My goals as your dentist are to get to know you as a person, to help you through your oral health needs, and to deliver high quality treatment in a comfortable manner. I truly look forward to meeting you!

Outside the Office
When not working with patients, I love to bike, ski, and spend time outdoors with my wife, Chelsea, and our dog, Martha. We are so excited to become part of this wonderful community, and look forward to exploring everything Bend and Central Oregon has to offer.
