Seeing the joy and confidence on my patients’ faces when they achieve the smiles of their dreams is the best part of being an orthodontist. Over the past eight years, I have met such wonderful people, and they’ve all taught me so much. I think people enjoy being around somebody who truly loves what he or she does, and that excitement becomes infectious. I hope that each and every patient I meet becomes as excited as I am about his or her orthodontic treatment.

Family and Community
I am a native of Prattville, AL, and proud to have been born and raised in such a great community. I live here with my wife, Ashley, and our three dogs. My free time is spent hunting, fishing, playing golf, or really just doing anything outside. I can also be found on my family’s farm.
Being a part of the community where I practice is very important to me. I enjoy watching the children I treat grow up and thrive in the community that I call home. I see so many of my patients out around town at dinner, ballgames, church, and community functions. I believe that a practicing doctor should know his patients as people and not just as a name on a chart. I want my patients to develop a sense of pride and bond with somebody they see as one of their own.
