I am very lucky to work in a profession that I love. It is very rewarding to give the gift of a beautiful smile and have a positive influence on patients’ lives. A beautiful smile is one of the first things you notice when meeting someone new, and I am honored to play a major part in the process that can have such a significant effect on a person’s self-image and oral health.

I strive to stay up to date with the latest in orthodontic technology so I can provide the best results in less time, and with improved comfort. Although I rely heavily on an artistic eye and experience, “evidence-based care” is the foundation of our practice. By focusing on the scientific literature and what the research in our field tells us, we get one step closer to great results.

Outside the Office
I am a Fort Wayne native and am pleased to practice orthodontics and raise my family in this wonderful area. I am married to Dr. Laura Parrish and we are very happy for the opportunities offered by the Fort Wayne community. We have two sons, Noah and Ty, and love spending time with them and watching them explore and learn about the world at this young age. They are truly a joy. When I’m not in the office or with my family, I enjoy playing golf, being with friends, and cheering on Indiana sports teams!
