Dr. Brian graduated Magna Cum Laude from Carson Newman College, a small Christian college in the heart of the Smokey Mountains, in 2001. Dr. Brian served as the Senior Class President and partook passionately in many charitable organizations which helped care for those less fortunate in the Appalachian area.

Dr. Brian graduated Suma Cum Laude from the University of Tennessee College of Dentistry in Memphis TN in 2005. It was in Memphis that Dr. Brian grew to love and appreciate Elvis, but he and Megan also longed to be closer to family. So after graduation from dental school, they immediately moved back north to Mount Airy, MD.

Dr. Brian established himself in Mount Airy in 2005 and started serving as a Dentist in Carroll County in 2006. Since then, he has worked in dental offices in Mt. Airy, Westminster, and Eldersburg.

Dr. Brian enjoys playing soccer, off roading in his Toyota FJ, but dreams of getting back into a Jeep again one day. He also enjoys going to concerts, as he and Megan never miss an opportunity to see Third Day, there favorite band, whenever the group comes through the area. Dr. Brian loves going to movies, and also enjoys going hiking with his three kids: Chase, Brady, and Eden.

Dr. Brian is excited to finally open up his brand new and very own private practice, this past January of 2012, here in Mount Airy, located between Burger King and Five Guys.

He invites YOU, and your family, to come take a tour of his new office, and see what Dentistry has available to better serve you and your needs in this advancing technological age.
