I grew up in South Jordan, Utah where I studied Public Health with a minor in Chemistry at Utah State University and worked as a Safety and Health Advisor at Kennecott Utah Copper. After a couple of years in the health and safety industry I attended and graduated from the University Of Michigan, School Of Dentistry. I served for two years in Southern Brazil on a mission for the LDS Church, and I speak fluent Portuguese and even some Spanish!
I enjoy camping, snowboarding and working on cars (even if they’re not always mine!). I love being outdoors and spending time with my wife Elise, our two daughters (Makaylee and Peyton) and our sons (Jackson and Caleb). We are honored to call Selah home and to be a part of this truly awesome community.
Dentistry is quickly changing and as technology improves I strive to deliver the most up-to-date and safest dental care I can. I’ve taken many courses, averaging over 100 hrs of continuing education annually over the last decade to keep up to date on all the latest dental technology, including: individual and full-arch implant placement, endodontics (root canals), same-day ceramic crowns with Cerec (white, no-metal crowns and fillings), digital radiography, oral surgery and even sedation dentistry!
I insist on making patients feel comfortable and do my very best to ensure that your visit is as pleasant as possible. It is my priority to make sure you understand your dental needs and deliver the best possible dental care. I love to treat patients of all ages and I look forward to meeting you and your family! Call today for an appointment, you won’t regret it.
Office Manager, Treatment Coordinator & Insurance Specialist
I was born and raised in the Yakima Valley. I have been working in dentistry since high school and have been here at Selah Family Dentistry since 2004.
I worked my first eight years in this practice as a dental assistant and used that knowledge to help people plan and get the dental care that they need. Part of my job is to assist patients with insurance questions and help them understand their treatment plans. I love to help patients achieve their dental goals!
When I am not at work, I enjoy hanging-out with my family & friends.
