I love my work as an orthodontist. My greatest joy comes from teaming with patients to create the perfect smile, one that will increase their self-esteem, boost their self-confidence, and transform their lives. I believe in delivering the best orthodontic care possible, and enjoy the one-on-one interaction I have with my patients. I like getting to know them as individuals with fascinating lives. We learn from each other, and that is incredibly rewarding.
I was born in North Miami Beach and moved to Gulf Breeze in 1972. I have lived here for more than 40 years. My wife Christy and I have two children, Jake and Kate. When not caring for my orthodontic patients, I enjoy spending time golfing, fishing, and boating. I am a long-term member of the Gulf Breeze Rotary club and I support many local charity organizations. I belong to Christ Episcopal Church in Pensacola and am an active member of my local community.

Hard to believe I've been a practicing orthodontist for more than 33 years now. During that time, I have had the opportunity to work with many patients, creating smiles that not only improve their appearance, but also enhance their self-confidence and self-esteem. Each patients’ unique orthodontic needs, and their individual personalities, make my professional life rewarding and fulfilling. One of the primary reasons I chose to become an orthodontist is because it is an area of dental care that patients seek out: not just because of necessity, but because they want to change their lives.
I was born and raised in Columbus, Georgia, and moved to Pensacola in 1989. My wife Tara and I have four adult children: three daughters, a son and five grandchildren. When I’m not at work, chances are that I am spending time with my family, playing with my granchildren, exercising, or occasionally driving an old car!
Because I believe in giving back to the community, I currently serve or have served on many boards and committees, such as for the YMCA and the Boy Scouts. Additionally, I am an active member of the First United Methodist Church in Pensacola. I am particularly proud of working with other professionals to start an annual golf tournament that raises money for PSC students that do not qualify for financial aid but still need tuition assistance.
God has blessed me with a wonderful personal and profesional life. I not only have an incredible family, but I have patients who provide me with opportunities to get to know them as we work together to improve their smiles and their lives. For all of this, I am very grateful!
