Orthodontics is rewarding on so many levels, and I feel truly blessed to know that I am able to have such a big impact on the lives of my patients. I love being an orthodontist because of the patients. When patients come to this practice wanting to improve their smiles, and we are able to meet and exceed their expectations, there's no better feeling than knowing that I am able to help them improve their health and self-confidence. I have been practicing dentistry for over 20 years in The Woodlands, and I can honestly say that, given the chance, I would do it all over again!

Continuing Education

Continuing education is an integral part of my practice. I regularly participate in continuing education in an effort to provide my patients with the most advanced and efficient treatment options available. I participate in continuing education courses in the U.S. as well as abroad through the World Federation of Orthodontics.

Outside Of The Practice

I am originally from the Rio Grande Valley, and have lived in The Woodlands for almost 20 years. I have two sons, Chandler and Grant. When I'm not at the practice, I enjoy spending time with my family, and together we like to travel and explore new places. We also enjoy skiing, golfing, fishing, football, and swimming. I am actively involved in the community and for the past six years I have been a volunteer with the Montgomery Community Clinic. I also enjoy supporting our local schools, and sponsoring local youth sports teams.
