After graduating from Dental School, my family and I returned to Waynesboro and acquired the practice of the retiring Dr. Donavan Shockey. I thoroughly enjoy dentistry and still love coming to work each morning. The office has been blessed with wonderful staff, who have been with me for many years and whom I look forward to greeting each day.
The long-term friendships with patients who have been with me for 3 or 4 decades have been heartwarming and I look forward to catching up with their lives at each visit. By the same token, I enjoy meeting new patients and learning what brought them to the Waynesboro area and to our office. Fortunately, throughout my career, I have been blessed with a steady stream of new patients.
I feel so fortunate to be able to relieve pain, restore smiles and transform lives. Dentistry is so rewarding to me that I have spent more time doing volunteer dentistry than taking vacations. This happens both locally and internationally.

I have been blessed by God with certain gifts and talents. I was led in about the 9th grade to consider and pursue dentistry as a career. God opened doors and I walked through them throughout college and dental school, both at the University of Michigan.
I opened my office in Michigan upon graduation, in 1980, and practiced on my own for 25 years. Then, it seemed God would have me consider other work related possibilities. An opportunity in Waynesboro became available. Again doors were opened and Linda, my wife, and I began walking through them. We are enjoying married life together in such a wonderful part of our country. We have met many new friends and are making this area our home for the rest of our lives.
I am thankful I have been allowed to become a dentist. The opportunity to meet people, develop continuing relationships, and directly help people become healthier and stay that way is very rewarding. We hope to incorporate dental mission trips in the near future, sharing the blessings God has bestowed on us with others.
