I truly believe that becoming an orthodontist is one of the best things I’ve ever done. Being able to improve smiles, faces, and oral function for my patients is very fulfilling. I look forward to coming to our office each morning to see the progress we are making in our patients’ smiles and hear about their lives. I’m especially proud of their before and after photos and being able to guide them in their pursuit of a better smile!
My patients are some of the most interesting people I’ve had the pleasure to meet. They each have unique personalities and dreams for the future. I’m glad to have the opportunity to have such a positive impact on their lives and, in turn, have the chance to see them grow up into amazing individuals.

A lot has changed in the orthodontic field in the past 25 years, and my commitment to continuing education ensures that my patients will receive the newest and best care available. I frequently participate in courses and lectures through the Align Institute and regional seminars for Invisalign®. I am also an active member of several professional organizations, including the:
- American Association of Orthodontists
- American Dental Association
- Greater Cincinnati Dental Society
- Cincinnati Dental Society
- Omicron Kappa Upsilon National Dental Honor Society
In the Office
I’m blessed with a wonderful, caring staff that values our patients’ time and needs as much as I do. My team is incredibly committed to working as a partner with every patient to maximize their orthodontic experience. Each one of them consistently goes above and beyond for each patient we see.
I am involved in supporting the La Salle High School alumni association, my church’s annual festival, and many local youth groups. My team and I also volunteer our services to provide custom mouthguards for our local high school football and hockey teams. I donate my skills as an orthodontist locally by providing free orthodontic treatment via Dental Options and Smiles Change Lives.
Outside the Office
I am a Cincinnati native and currently live here with my wife Susan. We have four children — Connie, Jeremy, Kyle, and Emily — as well as a family dog named Bella. In my younger years, I played the guitar and sang in several local bands, and even produced a CD with a Christian music group. These days I can be found enjoying a multitude of outdoor interests, including SCUBA diving, hiking, hunting, fishing, sports cars, and boating.
