When I graduated from the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry, I knew I wanted to make my home in Alaska. I feel very fortunate to have been practicing here for over 20 years. I have always strived to provide the highest quality of dentistry and I will continue to do so for as long as I am practicing. I am dedicated to providing the best clinical and personal standard My career has taken me from serving in the United States Public Health Service to an associate dentist with Dr. Jim Libby which led me to my current position as co- owner of Alaska Premier Dental Group and Gentle Care Dental Center. I am a qualified lifetime member of the Crown Council, Smiles for Life, The American Dental Society and the Alaska Dental Society. I have a passion for helping those in need by providing dental care to those who wouldnÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t otherwise have access to it. I have participated in and organized dental mission trips traveling to Fiji, Peru, The Dominican Republic, Kenya and Songea, Tanzania. Closer to home, along with my team at APDG, I have teamed up with Romig Middle School by screening students and providing them with care at no cost. On a personal level, I love being a dad and a husband. I am an avid outdoor enthusiast and I enjoy running, hiking, rafting, camping, fishing as well as being passionate about healthy eating and daily workouts. I compete in numerous 5k and mountain races and love it when my three daughters and wife compete with me. During the long Alaskan winters I spend my free time on the slopes on Mt. Alyeska; snowboarding and skiing with my family and friends.
