Nurture with nature

I believe in the power of nature to  promote wellness and peace. I love adorning our dental home with flowers and plants to bring life and joy into our space.

Create a sacred space

I want your spirits to be lifted as you enter this safe space and enjoy the benefits of aromatherapy. We also give you a warm lavender-infused towel at the end of your visit.


I understand that most people don't enjoy going to the dentist, so I created for you a comfy and cozy dental home where you are lovingly cared for.

Family friendly

I want the whole family to feel right at home. We have a Kid's Movie & Playroom with Play Stations and toys so that your kids learn that the dentist is a fun place, not a scary one.

Spark joy

I want you to feel joy when you’re in this space made just for you. I choose and place every piece of art and decor with your peace and happiness in mind.

"My parents say I came into this world wearing a huge smile on my face..."

I grew up in a small town in northern Canada, where it snowed for eight months out of the year. But it was amazing to grow up in such a close community of genuine, good people.

Before every basketball game, my dad would tell me, “Work hard and have fun.” I’ve carried this philosophy with me ever since. I believe in working extremely hard to accomplish your dreams, but to have fun doing it. 

I wake up every day excited to come to work because I absolutely love what I do. I get to make people smile and laugh every day, while transforming their smiles.

My wife calls me Happy Feet because I love to dance. You can find me boogieing down the halls of Thrive to my favorite tunes.

I also enjoy creating entertaining Youtube and Tik Tok videos to answer your dental questions and giving you a behind-the-scenes look into our world.

Dreamer, go-getter; lover of chocolate chip cookies, enthusiast of having great conversion over a good meal with family & friends.
