Dentistry is definitely a part of who I am. It is my chosen career path, my livelihood, and my passion. People come to me with an issue such as pain or embarrassment or difficulty eating, and I get to partner with them to find and implement a solution. There’s nothing quite like handing someone a mirror after working so hard to recreate their smile and see the excitement and confidence wash over them.

Every patient is unique and every treatment plan is different. The variety keeps the job fresh and exciting, and seeing each patient smile makes all the hard work worthwhile.

Education and Experience

I was born in Gainesville, Florida, and moved to Statesboro when I was only five years old. I graduated from Statesboro High School in 2005. I attended the University of Georgia and graduated in 2009 with a Bachelor of Science in chemistry. Later, I was accepted to the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Dentistry, where I graduated in 2013 with my Doctorate of Dental Medicine.

I hold licenses in both Georgia and South Carolina and have been practicing dentistry for more than a decade. Prior to joining Southern Family Dental Group, I worked at a practice in Myrtle Beach.

After being away from the place that I call home for several years, I was very excited to join Southern Family Dental Group. To be able to serve the Statesboro community is definitely a high point in my career. The practice has always provided quality care to their patients, and I am very excited to be back.

Continuing Education

I really like helping patients be more confident in their teeth. That could be just helping them maintain a healthy smile or even replacing teeth with implants, bridges, or removable prosthetics. I take several continuing education courses throughout the year focused on removable prosthodontics like dentures and partials to help patients be more comfortable and function better.

Family Life

Family is a big part of my life outside of work. I like spending time with my wife Marissa and our dog Ember. We like to travel and see new places, as well as trying new foods and finding new restaurants around town. Cooking, fishing, and working in the yard are also things I enjoy.
