I have worked as a dentist in both private and corporate settings and have seen how poorly patients are treated in some of those offices. I have dreamed of owning a practice where I can foster an environment that is built on trust as THE standard and foundation of care. I hope to grow Gold Standard Family Dental into the practice of choice in Odessa and Midland, and maybe one day all West Texas, without sacrificing that trust or family practice environment. I will do this by continuing to foster the relationships that have been created by previous doctors in the practice and by growing alongside each of your families as my family grows roots in this community.
Dentistry was not my first career, as I served in the artillery and military police branches of the United States Army, but it soon after became my passion through experiences with friends and family. I completed my Bachelors of Biological Sciences and Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry (DMD) degrees at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas (UNLV) in my hometown of Las Vegas, Nevada. My wife of 25 years, Jennifer, and I moved to the Dallas area of Texas in October of 2020 after the last of our three children reached adulthood and moved away from Las Vegas. We are very family oriented and love to go on new adventures together, especially when they involve the chance to be with our children. Jen and I are huge fans of sports, especially hockey, and have already fully embraced our Odessa Jackalopes and Midland Rockhounds. Outside of the office you will often see us wearing some sort of jersey or shirt of our favorite teams, but most often it will be to represent our hometown Vegas Golden Knights. Feel free to come and strike up a conversation and we can talk at great lengths!
I look forward to continuing to meet and care for all the members of our practice’s family. I am excited to learn from each one of you about our area and to teach you all you care to know about your oral health and its relationship to your overall health and well-being.
