My goal is to treat each patient with excellence and in an environment filled with care, integrity, and laughter. I feel truly blessed to be able to serve my patients by providing gentle, caring dentistry. It is a privilege to be involved in improving their oral health, and I look forward to transforming smiles and seeing how that transformation can empower and have a positive impact in their lives.
My purpose for living is to impact in a positive way as many people as the Lord places in my path, enabling them to trust God completely for their health and salvation.
Education and Continuing Education
Born and raised in Columbus, NE, I received my Bachelors of Science degree from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and then attended the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Dentistry for my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree. I continued my dental studies by completing a General Practice Residency at Methodist Hospital and Madison General Hospital in Madison, WI. I have practiced at our current location in Lincoln since 1992.
I believe the constant involvement in continuing education is crucial in the ever-changing field of dentistry. Participating in continuing education enables me to pursue comprehensive care for each patient while using the best materials and the latest techniques. I strive to be the best at providing optimal dental health for all my patients, and continuing education plays a key role in meeting that goal.

Outside the Office
When I’m not at the practice, I enjoy spending time with my wife, Linda, and our seven children: Zach, Nataleigh, Seth, Caleb, Allyson, Abigail, and Margy. Because our children range in age from college to elementary school, we are heavily involved in their social, sporting, and church activities. In my spare time, I enjoy running and working out.
Linda and I have seven adopted children, so we are heavily involved with organizations such as Nebraska Children’s Home, Lincoln Crisis Pregnancy Center, and Tiny Hands International. Our hope is that every child will have a stable home environment, whether in an orphanage setting or with wonderful loving parents. We also work tirelessly to try and end child trafficking. Our family has been involved in Project Serve, where churches come together to unite in Community Service Projects. I feel being involved in my community is a great opportunity to show the love of Christ to people in need of a little caring and encouragement.
