He continually attends seminars to help provide his patients with the most up to date techniques and treatment options.

Personal interests

Since dentists spend all day indoors, any time outside of dentistry, Ken spends his time outdoors. He values his time with his friends and family and with his wife Cindy and daughter Erin. Ken enjoys playing soccer hiking. This gives him a chance to enjoy nature and the environment.
