Dentistry seemed to click into place as a career option out of the blue – and decades later, he hasn’t looked back!
Where Did You Study Dentistry?

He’s also extensively trained in sedation dentistry and proudly completed all 9 levels of postgraduate education at the prestigious Kois Center for Dental Excellence in Seattle.
