Kevin joined the Dental Health Center team in 2018. Kevin brings a friendly and compassionate approach to helping each and every patient he sees. Gentle and thorough, Kevin will help you achieve optimal dental health where you will be happy and proud of your smile. In Kevin's spare time he enjoys parcheesi, shoes, and spending time with his family and newborn baby.

"Oral hygiene is so important and patients are often afraid to discuss their dental health concerns. With the gentle and comforting experience I strive to provide patients open up and you can help them walk out healthier and happier than when they walked in. That's what it's all about." - Kevin
