I was born and raised in the small northern town of Burns Lake, B.C. Between 1988 and 1992, I attended the University of British Columbia and completed my undergraduate degree in Medical Laboratory Sciences (B.M.L.Sc.). I then completed my Doctor of Dental Medicine (D.M.D.) degree in 1996. After graduating from dental school, I had the opportunity to go back and practice in my home town of Burns Lake. During my year there, I dealt with some challenging cases which provided me with some valuable knowledge and clinical skills.
I am a member of the Victoria and District Dental Society, the Canadian Dental Association, the College of Dental Surgeons of B.C., and the British Columbia Dental Association. I am quite proud of our new office which incorporates the latest technology to provide our patients with the highest quality dentistry in a relaxed, comfortable and healthy environment. I am committed to continuing education and learning by attending lectures, dental conventions and meetings that keep me informed on the latest products, equipment and techniques.
Most of my free time outside of dentistry is spent with my family. Together with my wife Christine and my 2 teenage sons, we enjoy many outdoor activities including camping, boating, hiking and downhill skiing. We love to travel and have been to Europe, Australia, India, Africa, Central and South America and South-East Asia. I also enjoy badminton and riding my motorcycle.
I have been practicing dentistry for almost 20 years and I still have a true passion for the profession. I enjoy working with the wonderful staff we have, some of whom have been with the practice for over 25 years. I enjoy the personal interaction with my patients and often find I learn just as much from them as they do from me. I appreciate the opportunity to give patients the best possible service for all their dental needs. I do care about your dental health and I promise that every time you see me, I WILL BE SMILING!
