He happily settled into the world of Dentistry after working for Clinical Research Associates in their Dental Research division while attending Brigham Young University.

After graduation from Case Western Reserve School of Dental Medicine in 2000, he was accepted into the U.S. Air Force’s Advanced Education in General Dentistry Residency, where he trained with specialists from all aspects of dentistry. From there he and his little family moved to Beale Air Force Base in Northern California.

In 2010 he joined the Oregon Air National Guard and loves continuing to serve his country.

He is always seeking out new knowledge in the dental field and is rapidly becoming known in the area for his expertise is treating patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea, helping them regain the quality sleep that we all need. His passion is found in helping his patients recover their zest for life and improved relationships after years of poor sleep, loud snoring, and even separate sleeping arrangements. Some say he has rescued more marriages than Dr. Phil!
Blake spends time outside of work with his wife Sarah, and their 5 children, going from sporting events, to dance recitals, to piano lessons, and everything else that comes with a busy family. He loves the outdoors and can be found volunteering either at church with the youth programs, or his local Scout troop, mentoring the next generation. He has yet to find an activity outside he doesn’t enjoy and looks forward to the new adventures each day brings.
