I was born in Provo, Utah where both my parents attended Brigham Young University. Shortly after my birth, my family moved to San Francisco where my father went to dental school at the University of the Pacific. My family then relocated to Modesto, California where I spent my formative years. Growing up, I developed an appreciation for dentistry while working part time at my father’s office.
Following high school, I served a two year mission for my church in Brazil. I then attended college at Brigham Young University – Idaho in Rexburg, Idaho graduating with a B.S. in Biology in 2004. While at BYU-Idaho I met my beautiful wife, Kyle. We were married in 2003 and we currently have four wonderful daughters.
In 2006 I moved to Boston where I attended dental school at Tufts University. While in Dental School I took advantage of the Health Professional Scholarship Program offered by the United States military. I joined the Army and spent the next five years as a military dentist. I was stationed first at Ft. Bliss in El Paso, Texas, and then in Grafenwoehr, Germany.
I then spent a year practicing dentistry in a private practice in Arizona when I was contacted by Dr. Reid and offered the opportunity to join the dental team of Doctors Reading and Reid. I am very excited to work side-by-side with these two great dentists in such a beautiful quality practice with the best staff in dentistry.
Outside of dentistry, I enjoy playing music, both piano and guitar, reading, and spending time with my family.
