Dr. Dave as his patients call him was born and raised in Cardston. He will tell you he always knew he wanted to be an eye doctor ever since he had his eyes checked by his father as a little boy. After studying a few years at Brigham Young University Idaho, Dr. Dave spent his final years of undergraduate studies at Pacific University in Oregon, where he received his Bachelor of Science in Vision Science. He also attended Optometry School at Pacific University graduating with distinction in 2017. During his final year of training, Dr. Dave was able to spend time working in a variety of eye care settings, including hospitals, diagnosing and treating ocular disease, as well as in private practice working with binocular vision specialists, where he was able to apply some of his training in vision therapy.
When he is not at the office, you will find him spending time with his wife Breanne who is also originally from Cardston, and his 2 year old daughter Olivia (Livy). He also enjoys playing hockey, softball, golfing and most recently curling. He spends some of his time volunteering with the local Lions Club supporting their mission to eradicate preventable blindness. He looks forward to putting down permanent roots in the wonderful community where he was raised.
