Upon receiving his DDS and then MS in Pediatric Dentistry from the University of Tennessee School of Dentistry, he practiced pediatric dentistry in Johnson City, TN for 38 years.

He was a member and past president of The Rotary Club of Johnson City, where he was a proud recipient of the Paul Harris Fellowship Award.
