I was raised in Hollis, OK. While growing up on my family’s small farm, I learned the meaning of early mornings and hard work. I was behind the wheel of a tractor before the age of 11. I still enjoy traveling back to southwest Oklahoma to quail hunt with my dad.
I am a graduate of Oklahoma State University where I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. After graduating from OSU, I worked for the Oklahoma Dental Foundation, where I served on the Mobile Smiles program coordinating care for underserved rural areas of the state. My higher education took me to New York City, where I received my Doctorate of Dental Surgery from New York University College of Dentistry.
I married my high school sweetheart, Lauren, and we have a one-year-old son, Calum, who keeps us on our toes! After completing school in New York and practicing in Texas, my family and I are excited to be back home in Oklahoma.
