Meet Dr. Nail
I knew at an early age I wanted to pursue dentistry as my career when I started wearing braces in 8th grade. I knew getting braces would change my smile, but I had no idea it was about to change my life! After 3 long years of braces and seeing what a difference they made in my appearance, I decided it would be a pretty fun job to be the guy responsible for helping people fix their smiles.
From that moment on I was determined to do whatever it took to become a dentist. I studied hard and graduated salutatorian from Guthrie High School and earned a scholarship to attend Oklahoma State where I graduated Cum Laude.
During my time at OSU I spent as much time as I could shadowing in dental offices and it was here I met Dr. Kelly Brown, the founder of Custom Dental. It didn’t take long hanging out in his office to decide I didn’t want to limit myself to only doing braces. After seeing him place implants, perform root canals, and do braces all in one afternoon I fell in love with the variety and being able to treat all my patients’ needs all under one roof.
After graduating from OSU I packed my bags and moved to Kentucky where I attended the University of Louisville School of Dentistry. After my second year of dental school I married my college sweetheart Whitney. She works as a pharmacist at the AMG hospital in Edmond. We don’t have any kids yet, but last summer we got a westie puppy named Gundy and he keeps us plenty busy.
I am a member of the Oklahoma Dental Association, American Dental Association, and the American Orthodontic Association. I have completed extensive post-doctoral studies in dental implants, orthodontics, and comprehensive dental rehabilitation. When I’m not practicing dentistry I enjoy going to the lake, wakeboarding, playing golf, and watching football.
Life is great. The only thing missing is meeting you. Come on by the office and give me a chance.
