I grew up in the West Kootenays of BC. Studied at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario before coming back to complete both my Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree and eventually my endodontic residency, at the University of British Columbia.
In between my UBC dental and specialty programs I worked in general practice in the Kootenays and on Vancouver Island, before joining the Canadian Forces and serving 15 years as part of 1 Dental Unit in BC, Quebec, Ontario and Afghanistan.
I hold an endodontic specialty license with the College of Dental Surgeons of BC, am a fellow of the Royal College of Dentists of Canada, a member of the Canadian Academy of Endodontics, and a member of the American Association of Endodontics.
I enjoy skiing and snowboarding in the winter, as often as possible with my three children Julian, Bronwyn and Elijah, and either running or biking around our beautiful city and province in the summer.
I am an annual attendee of the endodontics conferences held by both the Canadian Academy and American association of endodontics where I meet with colleagues and attend lectures on new techniques and materials in endodontics, to continue to provide current, state of the art endodontic treatment.
