I grew up in the western suburbs of Chicago, and I am graduate of Iowa State University and the Loyola University School of Dentistry. In 1988, I received a Master of Science degree and a Specialty Certificate in Orthodontics from the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry. In a profession like orthodontics, you never stop learning, and that’s important. There are things we do the same that we did 25 years ago because biology doesn’t change. But there are many things we do differently because technology has advanced so much. We even learn differently! Now, we have an Internet-based study club, which is a great way to learn from colleagues and collaborate with other dental professionals. Everything we learn more about can only benefit our patients.

OUTSIDE THE OFFICE
My wife, Carol, and I live near Fall Creek, Wisconsin. We enjoy spending time with family, exploring Wisconsin and Minnesota, and watching White Sox baseball in the summer. And, of course, we watch Blackhawk hockey in the winter. When I’m not in the office, I enjoy collecting and restoring vintage farm machinery, studying history, and listening to all kinds of music, from album rock to zydeco.
