I am originally from the town of Alameda in Northern California. I relocated, along with my wife and two sons, to Kitsap County in 1995 and have never regretted the move. We love living in Washington and enjoying all that the Northwest has to offer.
Experience & Education
I graduated from the University of California at Berkeley in 1974 as a pre-law student. I finally came to my senses and ultimately graduated from the University of California at San Francisco School of Dentistry. Upon graduation I assumed my grandfather’s practice in Alameda which he had started in 1926. It was fun to see children, grandchildren and even great grandchildren of his original patients.
In 1995 my wife and I discussed making a change and decided to move north; we have never looked back. Washington has been a great place to raise our two terrific sons. Zack and Logan are graduates of the University of Washington and are gainfully employed and living in Seattle. My daughter Alison is a graduate of the San Francisco School of Fashion and lives in the Bay Area.
I had the great privilege of joining Drs. Phillips and Niemeyer and the staff at the Silverdale Dental Center in June of 2008. I find it to be a rewarding place to practice due to the emphasis on high quality and compassionate patient care. I trust you will find the same to be true.
Besides dentistry, I enjoy time with my family, swimming, cycling and occasionally muddling about in a kayak with my wife. I am a member of the American and Washington State dental societies and am a great believer in continuing education to stay abreast of new procedures, techniques and materials.
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.
