I am a graduate of the inaugural class at the University of New England where I was trained in comprehensive oral health care. My life before becoming a dentist was anything but typical.
Most of my Army service was as an Apache attack helicopter pilot where I served in many capacities. Soon after I departed the service I became an Air Interdiction Agent for the federal government. My time in the service and as a federal law enforcement agent provided life lessons that would be difficult to obtain elsewhere. I learned how to actively listen to people and assist them with their goals.
Continuing education is of the utmost importance for me to stay at the cutting edge of providing the best clinical care in the most humanistic manner. My clinical care is strongly influenced by Evidence Based Dentistry that has been thoroughly researched. My professional affiliations include the American Dental Association, Maine Dental Society, Academy of General Dentistry, and the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine.
My professional areas of interest are esthetics, dental implants, periodontal (gum) surgery, and restoring function. Whether it is a single toothache or full mouth rehabilitation, I enjoy the attention to detail required for each person’s concern.
Additionally, I understand that some people have a great deal of anxiety when visiting the dentist and I am so happy when I can relieve their stress and have that same person laughing and looking forward to their next appointment by the time they leave. The wonderful team at Mountain View Dentistry prides themselves by making that and every appointment a relaxing visit.
