For the last twenty years plus, he has taken a special interest in the treatment of Sleep Disordered Breathing and has the distinction of being board certified by the prestigious American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine.

He also served as the president of that Board. He presently is in full time practice and until recently served part time on the clinical faculty at the University of Washington Dental School in Restorative Dentistry (he taught for nearly twenty years). He currently serves on the Pierce County Dental Society Board of Directors.

  • The only dentist/office in the South Puget Sound who has both Diplomat status with the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine and is accredited by the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine which is a nonprofit organization.
