During his high school and college days, he found that working in his father’s dental office doing jobs assigned to him by the staff to be a great source of interest, so after college he entered the University of North Carolina School of Dentistry to follow in his great-grandfather’s and father’s footsteps. At his graduation in 1990, he received the Academy of General Dentistry Senior Student Award for his excellent knowledge, interest, and proficiency in the Science of General Dentistry.
