As an orthodontist, I have the ability to profoundly change someone's appearance and, as a result, how they feel about themselves. As I work with a patient to help them achieve their dreams of a dazzling smile, I get a tremendous amount of satisfaction. I feel that everyone I meet has something to offer. I love my younger patients because they are all unique, have different personalities, keep me informed of new ways of thinking, and they keep me young. I also enjoy treating the adult patients because they are excited and open about new treatment techniques. Every one of my patients is here for the same reason- a beautiful smile, and I love watching them get so excited about how they look.
My education has given me a solid foundation in orthodontics, and provided me with the best training and experience possible.
- Bachelor of Arts in Korean – Brigham Young University
- Doctor of Dental Surgery – Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry
- Advanced Education in General Dentistry – Virginia Commonwealth University
- Master of Science in Orthodontics – Saint Louis University
I choose to participate in many forms of continuing education because it keeps me up to date and allows me to provide supreme care to my patients. I have become proficient in numerous treatment techniques such as laser therapy and temporary anchorage devices.

Outside the Office
I currently live in Prescott Valley with my wife, Angie, and children, Colden, Dylan, Evelynn, and Spencer. I love sports, especially soccer, volleyball, and football, both real and fantasy. I also love running, mountain biking, hiking, fishing, and spending time with my kids. Ask me to say something in Korean- I lived there for two years! I love getting involved with the community as well. I work with a local Boy Scout troop because I feel it is important, now more than ever, to build strong youth to become strong leaders in the future. I also support the community through various sponsorships, donations, and service. I feel that the only way we can make our community stronger is by being actively involved!
