“Dr H” is a graduate of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. He completed his Doctor of Medical Dentistry degree at the UNLV School of Dental Medicine in 2009. He understands the anxiety and fear associated with dental appointments and works hard to make the dental experience at Val Vista Smiles as pleasant painless as possible.

Dr. H is married and has three kids. When not at the office he is usually with his wife watching kids at soccer, volleyball, or basketball. He loves being involved with the school activities, being outdoors and working on anything that has an engine with his 16yr old son. 

Dr. H has a passion for detail and loves when patients are as involved with their care as he is. He has an incredible bedside manner and believes all patients deserve the best in time, quality and artistic outcomes. He truly loves being a dentist and it shows in his everyday commitment to the craft and to his patients.

Spending time on my uncle’s farm driving a tractor along with my cousins and four siblings in Richland, Washington, I was raised with small town, good solid values. I am the oldest of the children in our family, and this meant to me lots of responsibility that I had to learn quickly. Part of those responsibilities has included learning how to make people feel comfortable no matter what situation they are in.

My wife was my high school sweetheart. She has been a hair stylist in North Scottsdale for the last 3 years. We love to binge watch shows, eat out at great restaurants around the valley and constantly search for new food adventures. I still play video games but wake surfing in the summer and snowboarding in the winter gives me a lot of pleasure. I stay in shape by hiking.

Helping my patients reach a level of comfort is one of my big goals. Eliminating the anxiety they feel at the dentist’s office and having a calm experience is what I hope to bring to every patient. Because of the strong connection between oral health and systemic health, I always seek to inform my patients about this so they can use it to their advantage to reach their goals of overall health and happiness. The ability to boost someone’s confidence with that perfect smile is another satisfying aspect of dentistry that I love to provide.

Owner Orthodontist

Hello! A little bit about myself: I grew up in Washington state (the land of coffee and rain). After earning a B.A. in Biology from Covenant College, I attended the University of Alabama Dental School, where I received my doctorate degree in Dental Medicine (D.M.D). I stayed in Alabama for three more years and earned a master’s degree (M.S.) in Oral Biology and a Certificate of Specialty in Orthodontics.I have been practicing orthodontics in the PNW for the past 11 years where I had two office locations, incredible staff, and many wonderful patients.

My wife, Dolly, and I have been married for 20 years. Together, we have two daughters, two sons, two dogs…and also a thing for symmetry (LOL). As a family, we love to go to concerts, play cards, wake surf, snow ski, and cook together. I also have a passion for BBQ. In another life, I think I would run my own Texas-style BBQ restaurant.

In order to provide the best care for my patients, I strive to stay at the forefront of the latest research, treatment, and technologies. I am passionate about pursuing my faith through outreach in my church and the local community. I will carry this commitment over into the culture of my office. My biggest goal is to impact not only my patient’s smiles but also their lives. I look forward to the honor of meeting you all.
