“I believe the key to being a good dentist is having a quality education. The skills I have learned at dental school, combined with the knowledge from additional training courses, help me be a dentist you can rely on.”
After graduating from Bethel High School, I started my education at Washington State University where I achieved my B.S. in Zoology. I finished my schooling at the University of Washington where I received my Doctorate of Dental Surgery. With the help of my wife, Jamie, we started this practice from the ground up.For the past 33 years, we have proudly continued to maintain and modify our practice to fit the needs of my patients with the most up-to-date, state-of-the-art equipment and technology.
My wife and I have three wonderful children together: Danielle, Drew, and Lindsey. In my spare time, I enjoy competing in marathons, and am an active member of the Washington State Cougar Alumni. I just completed a half marathon in Kona, Hawaii and am continuing to train for future runs. My wife and I attend as many football games as our schedule allows.
I am a member of the American Dental Association, Washington State Dental Association, Washington Dental Service, Pierce County Dental Society, and the Better Business Bureau.
“I believe being a great dentist requires a good education and skills that can be utilized based on what the patient needs. I feel that doctor-patient communication is “key” to properly managing each individual’s needs.”
The skills I have learned at the University of Washington’s Dental School, combined with the knowledge from additional training courses, help me be a dentist you can rely on. I enjoy the challenge of treating a wide range of patients that are looking for a nicer smile whether that requires dental implants to replace missing teeth or invisalign to straighten teeth. I have completed hours of continuing education, including the study of advanced cosmetic dentistry, implantology, dental emergencies, and invisalign orthodontics.
I have been married to my best-friend, Bill, for 10 years and together for 21. We have four children; Peyton is nine, Dane is 7,and our twins Piper and Jaxon are five. I enjoy being physically active outdoors with activities such as: running, skiing, hiking, cycling, gardening, etc .
I have professional memberships including the American Dental Association, Washington State Dental Association, and Pierce County Dental Society which allow me to stay current on the latest technologies and treatments.
I started my dental career as a dental assistant but found that after being cross-trained at the front desk, I enjoyed the administrative side of dentistry more. I’ve been with Meridian South Family Dentistry since 2000, and have enjoyed working with such a close-knit family practice. Outside of work I love spending time with my family, especially doing things in the outdoors!

I’ve been working with Meridian South Family Dentistry for 11 years and I’ve been in dentistry for 18. What I enjoy most about being an assistant is working hand in hand with Dr. Ladowski and our cosmetic cases, it brings the artist out in me.
