Shortly after graduation I started a private practice in the Columbus area. Immersing myself in as much continuing education as possible, I eventually developed a great passion for dental implant surgery. In 2019 after 6 years of building a successful general practice in Ohio, I followed my passion and moved to Scottsdale, Arizona to take a full time position with Implant Pathway.
In my time at Implant Pathway I rose to the positions of Chief Clinical Officer and Lead Instructor. I created and taught the content offered in courses such as Basic Implantology, Sinus Grafting, Full
Arch Overdentures, Implant Complications, 3D Printing Surgical Guides and more. I also helped over 1,000 dentists place over 12,000 implants in my time at Implant Pathway. I managed all follow ups and complications with the team at New Horizon Institute, and was also a lead faculty member for the NYU AEGD at the clinic. One of my proudest professional accomplishments was the fostering of new and seasoned implant dentists through their own pathway with dental implants.
In 2021 I received my Diplomate in the American Board of Oral Implantology. This distinction requires that a surgeon pass a written board exam and defend 10 surgical cases to an oral exam committee, as well as fulfilling over 800 CE hours directly about dental implant therapy. In 2022 I received my Fellow in the American Academy of Implant Dentistry and was asked to present at the
AAID Annual Conference for two different workshops and lectures. I lecture nationally on all topics of dental implants and love to partake in CE from other great educators whenever given the chance.
In late 2022 I decided it was time to re-enter private practice. I now offer my surgical skillset and mentoring mindset to practices and doctors throughout the Greater Phoenix area where I enjoy the variety of procedures and offices I get to visit providing care throughout the valley.
