Caring for your family’s smiles

dentist Birch in Port Angeles, WA

"Do what you can with what you have with where you are."

Grew up in Kennewick, WA. While earning my undergraduate degree at Eastern Washington University, I met what would become my future wife Lorraine, “Rainy.” Her hometown was Port Angeles, WA, and on many subsequent trips to visit I quickly fell in love with the area. Both my wife and I have degrees in biology, and we were both employed as environmental scientists after undergraduate school.

After graduating from college, our son Michael was born, and then six years later our daughter Genna came along. Both our children have been raised in Port Angeles.

My mentors Steven Matheson and David Roberts both helped steer me toward a dental career.

Steven Matheson was my dentist growing up, and he mentored me into the profession. While J. Martin Anderson, the restorative chair at the University of Washington, inspired me to focus on restorative skills and to be relentless in the pursuit of excellence from diagnosis to delivery to follow up.

I have always liked to build, with lego fascinating me and as a child, I built endlessly with those bricks – dentistry seemed to be a good fit.

Every day doing dentistry, there is a spectrum of life most people do not get to see from the very old to the very young and everything in between. Didn’t know that part of dentistry would be so rewarding.

Outside of the Office

I race with team Silver Sleeves in the 24 hours of LeMans endurance races and like fixing old mini coopers. I also produce the Cooper Stripes blog and am still involved with Scouting (ex-scout master).

Your Hero

Aristotle. He developed critical thinking, taxonomy, and espoused temperance as a virtue.

Best Day of Your Life

My wedding day. We are planning my daughter’s wedding next year and looking back at how well our wedding went and how easy it seemed brought forth wonderful memories.

Ice Cream Flavor

I really like caramel cone – if you haven’t had it, you need to try it. It’s ice cream art just like the best parts are mixed together at our office.


Caring for your family’s smiles

dentist near me in Port Angeles

I moved to Port Angeles and joined Eleven Eleven Dental in the Spring of 2023 with 25 years of experience. Then, I have worked in private practice, public health settings, and as a dental school faculty. Raised in South Louisiana as s Saints fan (Who Dat!) and attended dental school at LSU Health Sciences Center in New Orleans (Geaux Tigers!).

When I am not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my two grown daughters, Adeline & Eleanor, and video chatting with my many long-distance friends. I also enjoy adventuring on the Olympic Peninsula, reading, watching football, and practicing yoga.

I have a passion for patient education and building relationships with my patients, which I believe is an integral part of comprehensive quality dental care, I look forward to serving you!
