Creating Life-Changing Smiles

I love watching the changes in my patients as treatment progresses. Their appearance changes as does their self-esteem and confidence. At the end, when we show them their finished smile for the first time, they’re filled with happiness and can’t stop smiling and laughing.

Orthodontics gives me the ability to help others achieve a beautiful, confident smile that will last a lifetime. Working with so many unique, remarkable people gives my life a real sense of balance and provides me with challenges to meet the needs of each individual. I love sharing smiles and laughter with my patients and making those smiles come easier and more freely every day.

Every patient is unique. Yes, we care for their teeth, but over the course of treatment I find it even more rewarding to get to know our patients for the individuals they are and share in their lives. I hope we touch their lives in a meaningful way; I know each of them has a meaningful impact on ours.

I’m a dedicated life-long learner. Our patients trust us to deliver the best care and continuing education allows us to exceed their expectations. I attended national, regional, and local orthodontic meetings, taking courses that focus on efficient and proven treatment approaches. Orthodontics is a continually evolving specialty and I am committed to remaining current on the changes.

Personal Life

I grew up locally, in Redlands. For the past ten years I’ve lived in Beaumont with my wife, best friend, and the love of my life. Lucky for me, Dr. Gabriela Garcia is also my orthodontic practice partner. We have two boys who keep our lives full of joy and adventure.

When I’m not working, I enjoy cycling and spending time with my family. I like playing with the boys and cooking wonderful family meals with my wife.

I also volunteer my time mentoring and coaching a local high school mountain bike team.
