My roots are here in northern California. I was born in Oakland and later moved to the Lincoln area in 1966. I went to Lincoln High school where I met my lovely wife, Charlene, in 1970. We have been together ever since and have been happily married since 1979. We have two daughters, Megan and Stephanie. They both live in Irvine, CA and are beginning their careers in education and medical sales respectively. They are the center of our lives and we try to see them often. Our dog, Bear, completes our little family, and wherever we go he usually travels with us. I feel very blessed to have this wonderful family and enjoy them immensely.
After graduating from UC Davis and UCSF Dental School I always knew I would return to this area. We live in Rocklin and still get together with some of our childhood friends that we have known for almost fifty years. We consider their friendships very special and love to get together and share a meal and some laughter whenever we can.
I have been with Orchard Dental Group since 1991. I have surrounded myself with very talented and caring ladies who have helped to make my career in dentistry both successful and enjoyable. Together, we strive to make our patients feel safe and well cared for. It is our hope to make all of our patients feel special and to do everything we can to make their dental visits enjoyable and fulfill their dental needs.
