“I came to realize that life lived to help others is the only one that matters and that it is my duty. This is my highest and best use as a human.” – Ben Stein, actor, lawyer, economist
Orthodontics is a wonderful profession, full of rewards. Seeing a child or adolescent smile with confidence makes me feel like I’ve played an integral part in their lives. It’s why I love coming to work every day. Seeing an adult smile when their braces come off makes me feel like a magician. I have so much fun doing what I do and it thrills me to see my patients happy with their results. Creating new smiles for my patients in the most effective and efficient manner is the energy that warms my soul and has made my life truly wonderful. It’s been said that in order to do great work one must love what they do.

Outside the Office
I am a native of Winnipeg, Manitoba, and have lived in Calgary for the last 40 years. I have three grown children: Jared, who holds a master’s in financial risk management and is a financial engineer for a family office; Carly, an accomplished make-up artist now working as a sales and education executive with designer, Tom Ford; and Michael, who is a journeyman plumber. I also have dogs to keep me company at home now that my children are away. When I have free time away from the practice, I enjoy boating, skiing, curling, fine dining, and playing golf.
