Why Orthodontics?

Orthodontics provides an outlet for me to express my skills and my passion. For me, no career could be as fulfilling as orthodontics. My work is an intersection between art and science.

I love working with my patients, staff, and colleagues every day to provide outstanding orthodontic care.

Outside of the Office

I am incredibly proud of my three sons and three grandchildren. In my free time, I love to spend time with my family and my dog, Otis. I might be found in the sky pursuing my passion for flying. My plane of choice is a Piper Cub. When I’m not in the air, I enjoy traveling and playing fingerstyle guitar.

Giving back to our local community is important to me. I provide orthodontic treatment to underprivileged patients through programs such as Give Kids a Smile, the Florida Dental Association’s Project Dentists Care, and the Traviss Dental Program at the Lakeland Volunteers in Medicine dental clinic..
