Dear Patients Current and Future,
I understand that going to the dentist is not most peoples favorite thing. Many people are anxious about the noise, the discomfort and the cost of going to the dentist. Unfortunately, I can not totally get rid of any of those things, but as the owner of San Tan Valley Smiles my job is to ensure you have the most pleasant visit possible.
I look forward to getting to know you and your families over the years and I want to take a minute so you can get to know me.
I earned my Bachelors of Science degree in biology at Brigham Young University. I then earned my Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University Of Maryland School Of Dentistry. After graduation, my family and I moved to the Dallas area where I ran a new start up practice. We later moved to Arizona to be closer to family. I have seen many areas of the state working in Yuma, Globe, and Apache Junction. I enjoy all aspects of dentistry, but most of all I enjoy getting to know people and helping them feel better about themselves.
My wife Liesel and I met at BYU and we were married after graduation in Mesa. We have a five year old daughter named Maybree, a three year old son named Tate, and one year old daughter Ruby. They keep us busy and entertained with reading books, going to the park, playing dress up, and wrestling with Daddy. You can often find me hiking around in the San Tan Mountain Regional Park with one of them strapped into my hiking backpack.
When I have free time, I enjoy playing almost any sport from basketball and football, to tennis and volleyball. I also enjoy running, biking and hiking. In the last few years I have taken up photography, but I mostly enjoy taking pictures of my kids when I can get them to hold still. I am also a leader in the Boy Scouts of America and enjoy the opportunity to camp, fish and try to keep the boys alive.
