Orthodontics is all about making the teeth fit and function the way they are intended. A fantastic side benefit is a beautiful, healthy smile. I wish to make Sharp Orthodontics a welcoming, positive experience for patients of all ages. I believe in going above and beyond in pursuit of healthy teeth and the confidence they inspire. I have been striving to perfect the city's smiles since 1995. I love my community and I'm happy to dedicate myself to excellence in orthodontic care.
I emerged as a family-focused orthodontist from some of Missouri's finest institutes of higher learning. I did my undergraduate studies at Missouri State University, then attended The University of Missouri-Kansas City Dental School and completed my advanced work at St. Louis University School of Orthodontics.
I'm a strong believer in continuing education, as demonstrated by achieving my certification through the American Board of Orthodontics for excellence in the field in 2008. I make it a point to exceed the State Board's requirements for renewal and to keep up to date on all of the latest research and advances in orthodontic care.
In The Community
Along with my wife Cynthia and our two children, Meredith and John, I am an active member of the Springfield-Branson community. My family and I are members of King's Way United Methodist Church and we engage in volunteer opportunities together. We're the proud owners of two Scottish terriers and we often participate in local pet rescue projects. We are also regular sponsors of Springfield-Branson schools and many club sports teams.
