Education: A.T. University Barry University
I came to Arizona from Florida five years ago strictly for dental school but fell in love with everything about the state and decided to stay. I love the weather, everything there is to do, and as a bonus, I met my wife Shannon here. Arizona has been good to me and I don’t plan on leaving anytime soon!
I am extremely proud to be a dentist and have found the field intriguing from an early age. The aspect of my profession I find most rewarding is that I can have a direct impact on someone’s life and health. I especially enjoy working in pediatric dentistry because I often get to make the child’s first experience with the dentist, a positive one! I also strive to empower all of my patients to place a high value on their oral healthcare as it can have a profound influence on their whole body health!
I have known about Mountain Park for several years. I got my foot in the door when I was still in school by meeting with Dr. Relf. I was fortunate enough to get an interview and get hired in August 2016. As a student, I received the National Health Service Course Scholarship, and I love the community feel of working in a Federally Qualified Health Center.
I learned in school that as a dentist, the teeth we treat are connected to a person, who is part of a family, which is part of a community! I love how Mountain Park works together to make our patients and their communities have a better future. I also love how the organization is always growing.
In my free time I enjoy practicing yoga, spinning, and hiking with my Chocolate Lab, Kevin! I am also a huge soccer and football fan- Go Gators!
