I was born and raised in St. Paul, MN. I graduated cum laude in 1978 from St. Thomas College with a Biology major and a Chemistry minor. I played football there and now I donate custom mouthguards for the football team and work with the St. Thomas athletic department to treat student athletes that have dental problems. I graduated cum laude in 1982 from U of M Dental School.
I take 25-30 hours of continuing education lectures per year and 10.15 hours online per year. I had a practice in downtown St. Paul for 15 years and a practice in Woodbury for 23 years. I combined with Oakdale Family Dentistry in late March 2020. I want to continue to practice dentistry and I enjoy seeing patients and their families.
My wife Deanne and I have 3 adult children- twin sons, and a daughter. She and her husband are expecting our first grandson mid-July 2020. I enjoy golfing and going to our cabin in Northern Wisconsin to relax, fish, grouse hunt and boat.
Every one of my patients should feel welcome and not hesitate to come to Oakdale Family Dentistry.
