“I created the 89A team because I insist on providing the best dental care for my patients. Here you will find top-notch dentistry, the highest quality materials and latest dental technology to literally “show” you what’s going on in your mouth so you can have a voice in your own dental care. Two of the many things I love in life are dentistry and classic cars. Mix the two together and you have 89A Dental Care! I love what I do.

My wife, Christina, and I moved to Prescott Valley in 2009 with our oldest son, Isaac, in tow. In 2011, our twin boys, Luke and Jonah, came into our family. We love Prescott Valley and enjoy raising our boys here.”

“I joined the 89A Dental team because of their philosophy to provide excellent dental care of the highest standards. I will strive to ensure integrity, quality, and precision in all of my work. I will also work to empower you, the patient, with the knowledge and information needed to make informed decisions regarding your dental health. I consider all of my patients as family, and will treat you in a caring, understanding, and thorough manner.

My family and I moved to Prescott Valley in 2013 and we have since fallen in love with the area. My wife, Britta, and I have four wonderful children. After having spent time in Utah, New York, and New Mexico, we are excited to put down roots here. We look forward to growing our family, alongside yours, as part of this great community.”
