Training and Passion:

I trained at the University of Tennessee in Memphis and the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, and in keeping with the traditions of these institutions, I developed a very strong training in dental alveolar surgery, implant reconstruction, office anesthesia and maxillofacial trauma. I carry these traditions forward every day in my practice, and I pride myself on being an oral surgeon steeped in the “old school” traditions. I utilize new technologies and innovative techniques and constantly grow professionally; however, I have never lost sight of the fact that I stand on the shoulders of giants in our specialty who treated battlefield casualties. I have a passion for providing the highest quality care for my patients and strive to develop a genuine empathy and connection with every patient in my chair.
