I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself and thank you for welcoming me to Beaufort. My wife Kristy, son Will and I are excited to delve deeper into this wonderful town where we have spent half of our time over the past four years. I am honored that Dr. Short has placed his trust in me and enthusiastic about the opportunity to serve the dental community here.
Dentistry is a passion for me, and, over the last decade, I have come to realize that getting to know patients and treat them like family is my calling. Each year, I participate in hundreds of hours of continuing education over the required limits and am trained in a wide variety of specialty procedures including root canals, Invisalign, implants and oral appliance alternatives to C-PAP machines. I also recently became one of several practitioners in the state to be certified in a new pinhole gum rejuvination technique that provides a much less invasive alternative to traditional gum grafting. I have performed thousands of Cerec restorations and am thrilled to offer crowns in about an hour to better fit patients’ busy schedules.
In my quest to provide the very best and most up-to-date treatment available to fit my patients’ desires and budgets I have studied at the Spear Institute, Garg Implant Institute, the Triangle Dental Institute for Oral Implantology, American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, the Nash Institute and many others.
As the President of the North Carolina Dental Association’s Fifth District and a board member of several hospital and health department boards, I aspire to remain on the cutting edge of whole health, preventive care and strive not just to treat teeth but patients.
Carrying on the legacy of Dr. Short at the helm of one of Carteret County’s longest-running practices is a privilege that I take very seriously. Retaining the values and friendly faces you are used to while continuing to expand the services available in Beaufort and the surrounding Carteret County areas is my top priority. I look forward to getting to know each of you over the next few months.
