"I grew up in southern California, the son of a busy orthodontist. I have been surrounded with a deep respect for the responsibility involved in patient care on a day to day level. Prior to coming to Bakersfield I was a dentist in San Diego. My wife Amy and I chose Bakersfield as the right place to raise our two boys and develop a family dental practice. We have found the people of Bakersfield to be some of the nicest people we’ve ever met."
