Born in the maritimes, I was raised from a young age on a mixed farm in the badlands, north of Drumheller.
I attended the University of Alberta, graduating from the Faculty of Dentistry. I have had a career long commitment to professional development and continuing education. I have also had the privilege of working as a clinical instructor at the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry, training dental students in restorative techniques. I enjoy the challenges and student interaction of teaching. I am passionate about encouraging and supporting the next generation of dentists.
My wife, Shelley and I have lived in southwest Edmonton for over two decades raising our three children. Outside of dentistry, I enjoy family time, cycling, photography, and I am an avid reader.
Over a decade ago, I was diagnosed with a sleep disordered breathing condition. At that time CPAP was the only treatment option presented to me. After several years of exploring alternative treatments, research revealed promising results with an innovative dental solution. Oral Appliance Therapy is an effective treatment that is covered by many health plans. I now help others with snoring and obstructive sleep apnea problems. As a member of the Alberta Dental Sleep Medicine Study Club, and The American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, I stay current on recent research, educational resources and contemporary treatments.
I look forward to helping you to identify any sleep disordered breathing problems and working with you to optimize your healthy and restorative sleep. We all want to enjoy improved health, longevity, and quality of life.
