After completing my undergraduate work at Trinity, I was accepted at all three Texas dental schools. I chose The University of Texas Heath Science Center Dental School, San Antonio. This dental school has been consistently ranked the number one dental education center in the United States. My four years flew by and my love affair with dentistry flourished.
Following graduation from dental school in 1997, Dr. Tasch and I opened our restorative practice here in Austin. Quality, not quantity has always been our goal.
In 2006, I married Sherri. I met her within a few weeks of moving to Austin in 1997 and she had been my full time honey since that time. We have been living with our dogs in NW Austin since then and love our canine children more than anything!
I recently completed the requirements for Fellowship with the Academy of General Dentistry and received the award in Philadelphia. Attaining Fellowship is a rigorous process that requires five years of membership in the AGD, over 500 hours of continuing education, and passing a certification exam.
Outside dentistry, I enjoy a wide variety of interests. I still fabricate wood projects in my shop, and I spend several days each week training my Labrador Retrievers, Zoe and Boo, and and their new tiny brother, Kirby (Teacup Yorkie) provides endless hours of comic relief. Sherri and I are into scuba diving and underwater photography which fill our vacations with fun and adventure.
Dentistry has always been the goal. I invite you to come and share my enthusiasm about all the great techniques at our disposal to reconstruct a healthy, drop dead gorgeous smile!
