I'm not too far from home - I grew up in Fond du Lac, one of six kids. After graduating from Marquette University School of Dentistry, I joined the Army Dental Corps. I was stationed in the US and overseas including a tour of duty in Iraq, treating US and Iraqi soldiers at Forward Operating Base Diamondback. I achieved the rank of Colonel in the US Army Reserves and have proudly served with Armed Forces men and women in the US, Germany, Panama and Iraq.
The Academy of General Dentistry is one of the professional organizations I am affiliated with. The AGD is dedicated to continuing education after graduation from formal professional training. I am a Fellow of the Academy, which is a title awarded to those who complete many hours of post-graduate education and pass a rigorous exam. I am very aware of the importance of keeping current with the constantly changing materials, techniques, and information, and have completed over 1000 hours of continuing education to date.
