In the 32 years I have been practicing here, I’ve had the opportunity to care for multiple generations of the same family. It is heartwarming to see mothers who were child patients themselves bring in their own kids, and knowing that my team and I will make the experience positive and special, and starting the person on the right path to excellent, long-term oral health.
Education and Continuing Education
I attended Lamar University for my Bachelor of Science, and received my Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio. It is my life’s pursuit to continue my education and expand my knowledge in the dental field. Technology is constantly evolving to better meet the needs of patients and practitioners, and there are corresponding developments in techniques and processes, as well. Continuing education gives me the opportunity to have the highest level of knowledge and to expand my skills continually to stay current with the field, in order to provide my patients with the best care available.
With more than three decades of dental devotion have created results that improve patients’ lives. It has been fascinating to be part of the history to see dentistry changes in the last ten years, and be able to bring them to the practice and allow patients to benefit from new technologies.

I am a native of Houston, TX, and have called Beaumont my home since 1981. My wife and I have one son, of whom we are very proud. My leisure time is family-focused, but I also enjoy swimming and studying.
Community involvement is important to me, and I am involved in programs such as Boys’ Haven of America, Foster Care Awareness Month, Kid Fest, Fall Fest, Muscular Dystrophy Lock-Up, Chamber of Commerce, and the Better Business Bureau. I also sponsor local high school basketball teams and local middle school volleyball.
