My greatest passion in dentistry is building great relationships with my patients and the conversations we share. I enjoy helping people achieve optimal oral health, all while learning about their lives and interests. I want to provide the best experience to each person I meet. I chose the oral healthcare field to make a difference in peoples' lives, but it is the difference in my own life that I find to be most rewarding. Being a dentist means I get to use my many years of experience and knowledge, combined with state-of-the-art practices, equipment and technologies. I enjoy providing an extensive range of restorative, preventive and cosmetic services, working with a fun, dedicated and highly experienced Team.
My goal is to provide exceptional dental care to my patients by combining a caring and understanding approach with the most up-to-date advances in dental technology and to continue my strong commitment to continuing education for myself and my team. We take extra care to insure your comfort, confidence, trust and satisfaction with our dental services.
We care deeply about our community and are extremely proud of our reputation. Our practice is built on patient referrals. Patients have chosen to trust us year after year to care for their oral care needs. Building a foundation of trust by treating our patients as special individuals has been vital to our success.
My Education and Commitment to Continuing Education
- Doctorate of Dental Surgery, University of Oslo, Norway
- Residency in Advanced Education in General Dentistry, Eastman Dental Center, Rochester, NY
- Master of Science degree, University of Rochester
I was an appointed Associate Professor in Dentistry, teaching postgraduate dental residents, as well as maintaining a faculty dental practice and doing dental research at the University of Rochester for 15 years. I opened my practice in Naples in 1991.
Every year I attend numerous dental and oral healthcare meetings, lectures, and hands-on workshops in order to remain current in the latest treatments, materials, and technologies. Doing so ensures I am able to always deliver the best and latest care available to my patients.

I am a native of Moss, Norway, and now call Naples my home, having moved here in 1990 from Rochester, New York. My wife Phyllis and I have been married for 24 years and have three children and nine grandchildren. I love playing guitar in my band, writing short stories and memoirs, and I am an avid traveler. Bird watching has been another passion of mine for many years.
