Professional Collaboration

I believe involvement in the following select professional organizations helps me provide the best care possible:

Outside the Office

I believe that life is a gift we share in service to others. My office provides charitable dentistry to men in Wheeler Mission’s faith-based Alcohol and Drug Rehab Program. My staff selects a number of patients each year who cannot afford the treatments they need and provide them a nominal fee or free of charge. I am a member of Greenwood Toastmasters, an international organization dedicated to developing leadership and public speaking skills.

I reside in Center Grove with my wife, Shelley, and two of our six children. We have a lovely granddaughter named Kyla and a Maltese named Chloe. I am devoted to my family and spend my fair weather free time enjoying and improving our back yard getaway.

I enjoy moderate regular exercise, reading, nutrition, photography, landscaping, deck construction, and venturing to the island of St. Martin, which my wife and I visit each year to relax and renew with our island friends.

As you open your heart and expand your experience through the relentless search for truth you become conscious of life, self, and God.

I have been in the dental field for more than 35 years and have worked at Gillum Dentistry for the last 18 years. I have experience in front office and Expanded Dental Assisting. I am very good at explaining your dental appointment and answering any questions you may have regarding your dental procedure. I have an extensive background in orthodontics and am also well-trained in the field of dental sleep medicine. Helping to treat snoring and sleep apnea patients. We work with Dedicated Sleep to help facilitate the process from pre-authorization to payment so our patients can focus on their treatment and not worry about the process. My favorite part of assisting and treating sleep patients is providing care that can help people regain their confidence and improve their smiles and lead healthier lives. Outside of the office I enjoy spending my free time with my husband, Davant, my granddaughter, Ava and grandson Max.
