I was born in Iowa, but spent most of my life in Colorado with stops in Virginia and Louisiana. While living in Charlottesville, Virginia, I attended Lane High School, and graduated from Arapahoe High School in Littleton, Colorado. My Bachelor of Science degree from Colorado State University was in Biological Science and I attended graduate school at Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana. I decided that job prospects in biology were limited, so I switched my career path to dentistry. I graduated from Louisiana State University School of Dentistry in 1979, and have practiced in Monument, Colorado ever since.

 

My wife Jan and I were married in 1971. We have two children who are both artists (see an example). We choose Monument because of its small town atmosphere, and proximity to a variety of outdoor activities.

 

Interests of mine include running, bicycling, and sculpture. I also work in Guatemala with Faith in Practice, providing dental care to the poor.

In addition, I volunteer at the KIND clinic in Colorado Springs. Over the years I have volunteered in many capacities in the community. In 2000, I received the Monument Hill Sertomas Club Service to Mankind award, and was privileged to be the Grand Marshall of the 4th of July Parade.

 

I attended LSU School of Dentistry from 1975 till my graduation in 1979. I began private practice in Monument immediately. Office space was limited so my first office was next to 7-11. In 1984, I built our office building at 1860 Woodmoor Drive. In 2000, the practice moved to our new location, which I built, at 18925 Base Camp Rd. I have always strived to provide my patients with a state of the art facility, and I feel our new location will do this for years to come.

 

I have been active in professional dentistry, and I am a member of the Colorado Springs Dental Society, Colorado Dental Association, and the American Dental Association. I served on the Colorado Springs Dental Society board for several years and was President in 1999 – 2000. I have been a delegate to the CDA General Assembly many times, as well as serving on several committees.

 

In 2000, I proposed adding a Dental Hygiene School at UCCS. A committee was formed by the Dean of the School of Nursing and I presently serve on this committee. It looks promising that this degree will become a reality in the near future.

 

I love practicing dentistry. It certainly beats having a real job. Every hour someone new comes in to entertain the staff and myself. Working in a small town environment has been a joy, and not having to be a commuter has hopefully added years to my life.

 

Being a part of the community has been rewarding, not just in the dental sense, but being able to participate in a wide range of activities. Getting to know patients as friends, watching kids grow up, and having an old fashioned 4th of July are just a few of the elements that have made practicing here a great experience.

 

I enjoy outdoor activities, and Monument is an ideal place for this. Until recently, I have been a competitive runner, but I am still able to fill up my spare time; mountain biking, road biking, snow boarding, cross country skiing etc. I also enjoy sculpture, music, backpacking, and bird watching.
