Dating in Dental School - part 1
When Alli was born, Tracy and I eventually came to the conclusion that we both wanted to move back to the Springfield area instead of buying a dental practice in Decatur. My father-in-law was still at his private practice; however, returning to his practice was not ideal. We opened our doors for Modern Dental October 8th, When Tracy and I look back at that moment in our lives, I think we both recall a different set of emotions.
At the time we opened our doors, Tracy was always supportive and never wavering; however, she will admit today of feeling nervous, scared, and perhaps anxious about our decision did I mention she was pregnant with our second child, Gavin? I, on the other hand, never looked back. I always wanted a practice that would be consumer-friendly, have the latest treatment technologies, and be busy and capable of serving many people in Springfield and central Illinois.
I believe that we have established that kind of practice.
I am proud of Modern Dental and everything it has to offer. Tracy and I now have three children, Alli, Gavin, and Teagan.
