After many years in the dental field, I still enjoy seeing all the smiles on my patients’ faces when they finally achieve an ideal state of oral health. I consider it an honor that patients come to me for their care, and feel blessed to have the opportunity to send so many wonderful, healthy smiles out into the world.
My practice philosophy has always been to maintain healthy teeth and gums with the most effective and conservative treatments. I have treated many cases, and helped all my patients to achieve their dental goals and keep their natural teeth for a lifetime.
I feel that I bring a unique energy to my work. As a lieutenant commander in the Navy during the years of Desert Shield and Desert Storm, I received the Navy Achievement Medal and an Expert Pistol Medal, and earned the nickname of “The Beast.” I am a “straight shooter”: I aim at the critical issues that my dental patients face.
EDUCATION AND CONTINUING EDUCATIONBy regularly participating in continuing education, I am able to stay current on the latest technology and dental treatments. My patients deserve the best, and continuing education allows me to provide my patients with more options and better results.
My continuing education also benefits the next generation of dental professionals. I have taught microbiology laboratory courses for nursing students at Seattle University, and was a clinical affiliate instructor at the University of Washington School of Dentistry. As an internationally known author and lecturer, and CEO of Miles Global, an international dental training and consulting firm, I lecture and publish on women’s health issues, leadership, and business management.
