Meet Our Dentist
After many years of working out of the San Luis Valley, I’m so happy to return to my hometown of Alamosa. I have always wanted to provide high quality and compassionate care here in the valley. I would like to take a few minutes to introduce myself. I grew up in Manassa but as a youth my family moved to Alamosa where I attended Sangre de Cristo High School. I then continued my education where I received a BS in Biology from Adams State. After completing my degree I lived in Barcelona Spain for 2 years as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Upon returning from Spain I was accepted and later graduated from University of Colorado- School of Dental Medicine
with a Doctorate in Dental Surgery with an emphasis in rural healthcare.
I have been a practicing dentist since 2012. I worked at a Pueblo Community Health Center in Pueblo Colorado for a short time and then moved to the western slope where I worked for Smiles 4 kids dentistry. I left Smiles 4 kids in order to move closer to home and become a partner at Family and Kids dental in Pueblo, CO. In 2017 the opportunity to purchase a building on main street and open Valley Smiles presented itself, and with the support of family and friends we have made this long time dream a reality. Here at Valley Smiles we look forward to serving the Valley community.
My wife Janna and I have been married for over 10 years and we have 4 children, Konner, Hunter, Tayler, and Oliver. We are enjoying the Mountains and all that the Valley has to offer.
I look forward to getting to know you and serving your family for years to come!
