Meet The Team

I have been at this location since 1997. I designed my office to overlook water. Being from Hawaii, water always had a calming effect on me. What I love about my job is the long term relationships I have been able to establish. I have a few third generation patients whose parents started with me and now I see their children and grandchildren as well. 

I have been married to my wife Virginia who is also a dentist for 28 years and we have a daughter Amanda who is a former collegiate softball player and is now a Speech Language Pathologist. 

In my spare time I train and teach in the Martial Arts. I enjoy exercising, collecting sports memorabilia, coaching and spending time with my wife and daughter. I am always striving to be a better dentist and a better person. I am blessed to have fantastic team members who help me achieve this. I look forward to working with you.
