It would be an honor to have you as a patient at East Texas Orthodontics. We hope you visit us sometime! To learn a little about me, here is a part of my story.
After working in a volunteer health clinic in college and coming back to visit my local orthodontist, I decided that I wanted to become an orthodontist myself. 2006 remains one of the biggest years of my life as I graduated Summa Cum Laude with a B.S. in Biochemistry from Oklahoma State University, married my lovely wife Jil, and moved to Dallas to start dental school at Baylor College of Dentistry. I graduated in 2010, ranking 4th in my class. My three-year residency was a time of great growth, both personally and in our family. I worked as a general dentist on Saturdays and weeks off from residency, gaining valuable experience in a non-academic setting. An opportunity did arise for me to head back to my hometown and work in an orthodontic practice, but I found myself once again heading back in Texas after just 18 months when an amazing practice became available.
My family could not be more proud to be members of this world-class community. I am excited to continue to build relationships with local schools, sports teams, and families in the hope that our practice can offer locals the orthodontic services that they need for healthy, straight, and beautiful smiles.
We’re excited to meet you!
