We believe that having an attractive smile improves your quality of life. In fact, we have seen a dramatic change in the personality of some of our patients after a smile makeover.

Beautiful smiles build confidence. Healthy teeth and gums improve your overall health. It is our goal to be your partner in achieving both!

Seek first to understand. We will spend a great deal of time just listening to you. We prefer to act as a consultant on your behalf while assisting you in developing a life plan for your dental care. We recognize that we are treating a person not just a set of teeth.

All of our patients have unique dental problems and may well need very different solutions. Isn’t it great that you are in charge of determining the solution that is best suited for you?

I am proud to have served patients in our community. Through continuing education and state-of-the-art equipment, we are able to offer you and your family the high level of care you’re looking for. Our team at Knoxville Smile Center and I will give you a warm welcome and our ongoing commitment to your dental health.

Outside the Office

I was born in Miami, where I was an avid swimmer and enjoyed fishing and camping. I played recreational tennis with my friends and often went on boating adventures, navigating the flood control canals in the Miami area.

Growing up, my family and I would often come to Tennessee to the Great Smoky Mountains during summer vacation. We would stay at Elkmont Campground, which is still one of my favorite pastimes. I was a bag boy for Publix Market, which is where I met my wife Caren, who was a cashier. She worked with me for many years as a dental hygienist and is now retired.

Caren and I have two daughters: the youngest is also a dental hygienist and has two children, and the oldest is a physical therapist who works in inpatient rehab.

When I’m not working, I am most likely playing doubles tennis or sailing. I own a 16-foot Hobie Cat that I love to sail.
