WHY HE WAS NOMINATED:

His tireless devotion to his community in Wisconsin’s capital, in which he, his wife and their three children live within walking distance of his office in a quaint part of town. His commitment extends to participating in community events such as Madison’s annual art show, Gallery Night, when his practice showcases locals’ artwork. He’s also a board member and volunteer dentist for the Madison Dental Initiative, a Salvation Army–affiliated clinic that serves homeless and low-income populations.

PHILOSOPHY:

“ ‘Would I Do It on Myself,’ or WIDIOM, is a good one to live by. When we look for the best, most conservative options, we treat patients honestly and fairly.”

EXCITING NEW TREND:

“The digital revolution can be both exciting and stressful. Each new development offers new possibilities for how we provide care and how we communicate with patients.”

SAGE ADVICE:

“Keep learning, and know your limits.”
