I was raised in Oroville, a small town in northern California and attended Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego, where I earned a degree in Biology.
At PLNU I met my wife, Winter Mitchell, who was born and raised in Bremerton. She introduced me to the wonderful state of Washington, and we were married here in Kitsap County on a beautiful July afternoon.
My interest in biology, my love for fixing things with my hands, and a desire to help people all led me to a career in dentistry, which I studied at Loma Linda University School of Dentistry in southern California.
I am dedicated to continuing my dental education and staying up to date with all the latest technologies. I am a preferred Invisalign provider and have completed extensive training in orthodontics. It is a joy to help patients straighten their smiles, whether it is with clear or traditional braces. I am an active member in the American Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, as well as the Kitsap County Dental Society. I have spent hundreds of hours honing my skills and training in the areas of implant dentistry, Invisalign®, cosmetic dentistry, and orthodontics.
In my spare time I enjoy staying active. I am an avid golfer, and also enjoy snowboarding, wakeboarding, hiking, running, and racquetball. During time off Winter and I love to read and enjoy cooking together and experimenting with new recipes. We also have a passion for traveling to new places, especially short day trips around the Northwest. Our two Vizslas, Maeby and Rebel, have been keeping us very busy as well.
I am proud to be a part of the outstanding team at Silverdale Dental Center, and look forward to providing you with the dental care you deserve.
As of May 19th we are open for full-service, non-urgent dental treatment.
Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.
Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.
Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued.
You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff. For example:
You will be notified via text, email or a phone call in regard to your upcoming visit and our new check-in procedures.
Our office will communicate with you to ask some screening questions. You’ll be asked those same questions again when you are in the office. We will also take your forehead temperature when you arrive at our office.
We ask that you please wear a mask covering your nose and mouth when you arrive.
We want to minimize the number of patients in our waiting room and operatories, so unless necessary, please have accompanying people wait in the car during your appointment.
We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed.
You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, children’s toys and so forth, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect.
Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.
We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time.
We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice. To make an appointment, please call our office at (360)692-9560.
Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.
