I earned my Associate's Degree at Murray State College, a Bachelor's n Biology/Chemistry from Southeastern Oklahoma State University, and my Doctor of Dental Surgery from The University of Oklahoma, College of Dentistry in 2002.

Dentistry is changing every day and I take pride in pursuing the very best Continuing Education courses each year.  I strive to take care of every single patient that I encounter and treat them like they are a part of my own family. I am one of the few dentists in Oklahoma that is licensed in IV Sedation and Implant Surgery.  I want our patients to experience the very best dental treatment.  Since 2002, I have served patients with the very best comprehensive, restorative, implant placement, sedation dentistry and cosmetic dentistry in my private practice. 

Away from the office I love spending time with my wife, Stephanie and our two boys, Jace and Landry.  We enjoy spending time on Lake Texoma and attending Dallas Cowboys and Oklahoma State Football Games.  I am an avid hunter and fisherman.  I also own a herd of registered black angus cattle, the boys love helping their dad on the weekends.

Thank You for instilling your trust in me.  I look forward to meeting you!

I earned a Bachelor's of Biotechnology Degree at Southeastern Oklahoma State University , and Doctor of Dental Surgery from The University of Oklahoma College of Dentistry in 2013.  Upon graduation, I completed a one-year residency in advanced general dentistry, with a focus on implants and cosmetic dentistry.  I enjoy spending time with my wife Heather, I am an avid sports fan, and love being outdoors.

I am excited to get to know all of our patients at Westside Family Dentistry. I love practicing general dentistry and can treat most dental conditions.  Taking care of patients with a comprehensive approach to their dental situation, and feeling like they're a member of our own family, really captures the essence of Westside Family Dentistry.

I look forward to meeting you!

I am a native of Southern Oklahoma, absolutely loved going to the dentist growing up in
Healdton, and first started my career in dentistry in 2004. First I earned an Associate’s Degree
at Murray State College in pre-dentistry, then a Bachelor’s Degree in Dental Hygiene at
University of Oklahoma College of Dentistry, a Bachelor’s Degree in Biological Health Sciences
at Southeastern Oklahoma State University, and a Doctorate in Dental Surgery from University
of Oklahoma College of Dentistry.

While I am completely nerdy about learning and growth experiences, I believe that people
matter most and strive every day to live by that principle. Achieving dental health is a different
journey for each individual. I believe in listening to your thoughts and concerns and so I can help
achieve your individual goals in a custom and comfortable way, no matter the extent of your
needs. I have a strong sense of community and appreciate all of the folks who helped me come
this far in life and look forward to giving back in a manner that will help others in a profound way.
In my personal life I enjoy putting my feet in the sand and enjoying the Lake Texoma sunshine
with my wonderful friends, family, neighbors, and puppy dogs. On the weekends I might be
found thrift shopping, road tripping, camping and fishing, working on ‘do it yourself’ house
projects, or getting lost in a good story of the sci fi/fantasy sort.

If you ever need me, just come on down and see me! It’ll be a pleasure getting to know you!

After graduating from Oklahoma State University with a bachelor's degree, I earned by Doctor of Dental Surgery at The University of Missouri at Kansas City.  I opened my private dental practice in 1971 in Durant, Oklahoma.  With the help of Dr. Brandon Beaver, Dr. Taylor Marcum, and our entire team at Westside Family Dentistry we have surpassed my initial dream of what an ideal dental practice should be.  I thouroughly enjoy interacting with our patients every day and working with our team.  We strive to maintain a warm and friendly atmosphere in our office.  We want you to feel like you are a part of our family.

Away from the office I enjoy spending time with my wife Joanne.  We have three children, Carroll III, Heather and Raquel - and two grandchildren, Addi and Cameron.  I love golfing, fishing and hunting when I am not working.

I would like to say Thank You for your trust in me over the years.  I look forward to seeing you soon!
