During his first year of dental school he received a scholarship from the US Air Force (USAF) through the Health Professions Scholarship Program. Upon graduating, he completed a 1-year advanced education in general dentistry (AEGD) residency at Sheppard AFB in Wichita Falls, Texas. Following the AEGD, he was stationed in Okinawa, Japan (3 years) and Mountain Home, Idaho (1 year).
