I feel very privileged to have the opportunity to be an orthodontist and have the ability to help my patients create the healthy, beautiful smiles they deserve. I absolutely love what I do, and after 35 years of practicing, I still look forward to going to work every day. You will always be treated as an individual, and my staff and I have fun providing your orthodontic care. We want to make it fun for you as well!
I received my Bachelor of Science degree and graduated with distinction, earned my Doctor of Dental Surgery, finishing fourth in a class of 111, and continued on for my Master of Science in Orthodontics all from the University of Minnesota. I take numerous continuing education courses annually so my patients can take advantage of the newest and most advanced treatment technology available.

Outside the Office
I am a native of Bemidji and currently reside in Winona with my wife, Sandy. We have three children, Brandon, Jason, and Cortney, and two dogs, Gizmo and Maple. When I'm not in the office I enjoy fishing, hunting, and working on cars. I am also an avid long-distance runner and have completed eight marathons. I have been a member of the YMCA and the Chamber of Commerce for 33 years.
