Why Did You Decide to Become a Dentist?
Dr. Chris grew up on a farm in Southwest Nebraska, in a very small town where it was generally accepted that everyone born there would grow up, stay, and become a farmer too. However, he had a dream to do something bigger and a little different for his own career. As soon as he was exposed to the world of dentistry, he realized that it was the right fit for his strengths and passions. He’s never regretted that decision for a second!
Where Did You Study Dentistry?
Dr. Chris graduated from the University of Nebraska College of Dentistry in 1992, and he’s been here ever since. He’s also used CEREC since 2001 and loves teaching other dentists and dental students about the merits of this modern technology. He is currently a guest lecturer at the UNMC College of Dentistry and a mentor in the CEREC program at the Scottsdale Center for Dentistry. The best teachers never stop learning, which is why he’s also a student of The Spear Center for Dentistry, and his dedication to excellence – along with his continuing education and experience – gives patients the confidence they need to accept his treatment recommendations.
