Dr. Jim received both his undergraduate (2002) and Dental degree (2006) from The Ohio State University. After spending a couple of years in private practice he decided his future focus should be on children.
He received pediatric specialty training at The Women's & Children's Hospital in Buffalo, New York. The Women's & Children's Hospital is affiliated with the University of Buffalo. He served as Chief Resident and has been awarded the prestigious honor of Board Certification in Pediatric Dentistry. Dr. Jim is a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.
In addition to holding credentials at local hospitals, Dr. Jim has a Level 2 Moderate Enteral Conscious Sedation Permit which allows treatment of apprehensive children that need more help than traditional techniques. He also maintains his certification in Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS).
As a member of the Ohio State Men's Crew Dr. Jim competed in college athletics. Dr. Jim continues to enjoy rowing and once had the opportunity to row with the La Société Nautique de Monaco rowing club on the Mediterranean Sea.
Dr. Jim is no stranger to great experiences and travel. At 18 Dr. Jim spent one month backpacking across Europe seeing the beautiful cities of London, Paris, Nice, Monaco, Florence, Munich, Vienna, and Geneva. He has since been back to Europe several times as well as many other countries in the exciting world we live in.
In his spare time Dr. Jim enjoys our local countryside exploring with the likes of Dora & Diego. You just might see him hiking along the Colorado or biking the state park.
