I feel exceedingly honored and excited to join Dr. Spitz, Dr. Winn, Dr. Goettl, Dr. Helms, and the wonderful team at Smiles in Motion. I very much look forward to serving the communities of the Chippewa Valley. Having grown up in a small town, I have always had a strong desire to give back and serve my community.
I grew up in La Porte City, IA and met my wife, Sara, at the University Of Iowa College Of Dentistry. Sara grew up in Cedar Rapids, IA. Her father grew up in Ladysmith, WI, where she is very excited to be practicing general dentistry. We are very excited to be moving to Wisconsin! We love to spend our free time kayaking, skiing, traveling, and relaxing with our cats and dog.
While I was at the University of Northern Iowa, I was a football coach for a local middle school. This experience was very rewarding and ultimately led to my desire to become a pediatric dentist. I find the challenges of treating children to be remarkably rewarding. Helping an anxious or fearful patient through their appointment is especially rewarding. I am so thankful for all of the opportunities and people who helped me during my training to become a great pediatric dentist.
