As an orthodontist, I feel blessed to have a career where I see people smile every day. I am always excited to see the transformation that takes place in our patient’s teeth. Not only do straight teeth improve functionality, longevity, and ease of cleaning; but we also see an improvement in our patient’s self-esteem and self-confidence as their treatment progresses. This makes my job very rewarding.
I enjoy working with patients of all ages. The AAO recommends that patients come in for their first orthodontic evaluation at 7 years old. Most of the time no treatment is necessary, however it does provide us a chance to evaluate his/her development and to discuss when treatment might be appropriate in the future. Adult orthodontics have become increasingly popular too. Whatever the age, I really enjoy getting to know each patient and delivering excellent results.

Outside the Office
I grew up in Longview, TX, and lived in Houston for 14 years prior to moving to Brenham. While my family and I are new to the Brenham area, we are excited to put down our roots and become part of the community. I am a member of the Washington County Chamber of Commerce and look forward to becoming more involved with community activities and organizations.
I have a beautiful wife named Kirby. We have a daughter named Olivia who is our pride and joy. We also have two West Highland terriers named Hoover and Bess who provide us with lots of entertainment.
My family is my greatest passion. When I’m not working, we enjoy spending time together travelling, watching our favorite TV shows, cooking, going for walks, attending sporting events, and just getting out in nature. I also enjoy playing tennis and golf and like watching all kinds of sports.
