"I was raised with an appreciation for the importance of excellent patient care. I grew up in Southern California where my father was an oral and maxillofacial surgeon and my mother was a registered nurse. As a youth, I worked in my father's office along with my mother and sister. I am happy to continue this tradition of working with my family now, as I work alongside my wife, Dr. Laura Pulver, to improve the smiles and lives of our patients in the Katy and Houston communities."
