Personal Biography

Dr. Mike grew up surfing the beaches of Southern California in the early 1970’s. His love of the ocean has never faded, and he is still “hanging ten” today. His career in dentistry has spanned four decades, and includes hundreds of hours serving in non-profit clinics for children and the elderly. His two kids, Miles and Kristen, have given him four grandchildren, Lyric, Drummer, Finn, and Tessa. Besides surfing, Dr. Mike enjoys playing guitar and ukulele, and serving the animal world by fostering homeless dogs. He is engaged to the love of his life, Kathy, whom he has known since first grade. Kathy and Mike have five furry children, Izze, Ivan, Gus, Noah, and little princess Nina!
