Making a Difference, Once Person at a Time
Being a dentist gives me the opportunity to meet new people every day, helping each to improve their oral health and quality of life. It brings me great personal and professional satisfaction, knowing that I am making a difference in my patients lives. Whether I’m providing them with a new level of confidence by improving their smile, giving them pain relief, or restoring their ability to properly and comfortably chew, it is important to me knowing that my patients leave our office feeling better.
At heart, I am a people-person and I love getting to know my patients, caring for and providing each of them with individualized care. I make every effort to be here for my patients, and I hope each of them always feels welcome and comfortable, and trusts I will give them the best dental care possible.
Education and Continuing Education
- Bachelor of Arts in Economics and Business, minor in Psychology, Indiana University

I have been practicing dentistry in Greenville since 1997. Dentistry, as with all fields of healthcare, is constantly changing. I have participated in extensive post graduate continuing education, bringing the most current knowledge in cosmetic and restorative dentistry and dental technology. Advancements in techniques, materials, and technology all mean better care and results for my patients and it’s my responsibility to remain current on developments.
In 2013, I started the Carolina Headache Center and obtained my certification in TruDenta® Neurophysiology for the treatment of TMJ dysfunction and migraines. I am also a member of the American Academy of Facial Esthetics and have been trained and certified in administering Botox.
I am proud to serve as the official team dentist for the Greenville Swamp Rabbits professional hockey team. I am also an active member of the SCDA, ADA, AGD, Greenville County Dental Society, American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, Oral Cancer Foundation, AAFE, and the BBB.
Beyond the Office
I grew up in Evansville, IN and remain a Hoosier at heart! Greenville has been my home since 1997. My wife Andreina and I, welcomed our first daughter, Anna Valentina, in February 2015. We also have a Labrador retriever, Stella.
When not caring for patients, I love spending time with my wife and my daughter, travelling whenever we have the opportunity. I also enjoy sports, working out, snow skiing, and playing golf. I am very passionate about my faith, my family, and building trusting relationships with my patients .
