For more than 36 years, it has been fun to see the smiles and amazement in the eyes of patients just after having their braces taken off. Healthy, beautiful smiles are what our practice continually desires to create. Maybe it was the enjoyment I had when I was younger playing team sports that inspires me to have the best orthodontic office team possible. We really love the Poole and Willis team “hoodies” that are given to each patient who join our team.
I am passionate about being a person who is friendly, and am sincerely concerned about those with and for whom I work. Every person deserves my best.
Education and Continuing Education
I was a Brigham Young University Cougar for four years (now a converted Aggie) before leaving for sunny Southern California to attend dental school at University of Southern California — better known as USC (Trojans). Not wanting to leave the sunshine or move my young family, my wife and I decided to attend University of California Los Angeles (UCLA Bruins) for my two-year orthodontic specialty residency program.
The orthodontic specialty is a dynamic profession and its treatment methods and materials are changing constantly. The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) provides me opportunities to learn new and advanced skills which I enjoy using to provide my patients with healthy, beautiful smiles. To stay on the cutting edge and provide my patients with the absolutely best care, I have chosen to attend many orthodontic seminars focused on the specialty of orthodontics. I look forward to being president of the American Association of Orthodontists in 2015. Our association represents more than 15,000 orthodontists.

Outside the Office
As a farm boy in Whitney, Idaho, I dreamed of a job in an air-conditioned office, free of the farm dust and dirt, that would allow me to be home before the sun went down. Two out of three isn’t bad. My wife and seven children agree with me that Cache Valley is a great place to live. I see patients when I attend scouting activities, sporting events, church functions, musical concerts, dance recitals, Aggie games, county fairs, shopping, shopping, and more shopping (six of our children are girls).
