The First.Dentist Team
Founder and CEO
Michael co-founded River Bridge Design, Inc. in 2007. The company was started and began to take off in Michael’s kitchen in Alabama and today is headquartered in beautiful South Florida. Forming an Internet company was a natural path. Michael has a Bachelor’s Degree in Information Technology and has worked in the Internet and computing field since 1996. He spent a good part of his career working in IT as a government contractor, then as a Systems Analyst. As the son of a dentist, with other family members in dentistry, choosing to build his own company around the dental profession was a natural choice!
Michael likes to keep his hands in all aspects of the business. He’s very involved with Sales, Program Management, SEO, and maintaining our partner and client relationships. He is the heart of the company and it is his heart, which makes everyone that’s part of the business feel like family.
In his “down time”, he enjoys spending time with family and getting outside hiking, biking, golfing, fishing…and trying to learn guitar.
