My father is a family physician, and I always wanted to follow in his footsteps in the medical field, where I could serve and help people. I attended Brigham Young University for my undergraduate studies, and then went to Las Vegas for dental school. I graduated cum laude from the University of Nevada-Las Vegas School of Dental Medicine. I am a member of the American Dental Association, Utah Dental Association, Weber District Dental Society, and the Academy of LDS Dentists. I served as a missionary in Caracas, Venezuela, and speak Spanish fluently.
My wife and I are both from Brigham City, and we have three boys. I’ve always loved anything outdoors: hiking, skiing, fly-fishing, and camping. I’m an avid reader, and am always looking for a good book.
