I have been practicing in the specialty field of orthodontics in the Ogden, Utah area since 1997. I am passionate about creating beautiful smiles. It is very satisfying to provide a service that changes people’s lives, health, and self-esteem. I truly appreciate being able to see the transformation of our patients as their confidence grows and they achieve the beautiful smiles they’ve always wanted.
My patients become more than just patients to me; they and their families are friends. I enjoy using my talents to provide my patients with excellent smiles and to improve their quality of life. We provide excellent care and a wonderful experience in a warm, caring, fun, family-oriented atmosphere.
Orthodontics is truly a team effort. My staff is exceptional in every way. They are friendly, well trained, and will make your experience in our office extraordinary. They make me excited to come to work and I feel that they make me a better orthodontist by making the experience in our office wonderful.

I am very excited about continuing education. I feel that to offer the best service to my patients, I need to stay up-to-date on the most advanced technologies and orthodontic techniques.

Outside the Office
I was born in Nevada, lived many years in Idaho, and have been in the Ogden area for more than 32 years. My wife, Laurie, and I have six kids, Oakley, Matthew, Lindsay, Brooke, Kellie, and Malan. We also have two dogs, Kitsel, a German wire-haired pointer, and Tori, an English springer spaniel.
I love spending time with Laurie and we enjoy watching the kids dance and play soccer. I love to fish, hunt, go snowmobiling, and be outdoors. I am also a Scoutmaster for the Boy Scouts of America and am active in my church. I feel it is very important to give back to improve the lives of those around us.
