Since we are relaunching our website, I thought this would be the perfect time to introduce myself and explain what I have to offer patients in our practice.
People always ask me why I decided to become a dentist. To be frank, I can't remember a single event that made my decision for me, but ever since I can remember the very first thing I have always noticed about people is their smile. I feel that our teeth and eyes are the two features that reveal the most about a person. This strong interest in smiles naturally led me to a profession where I could help people convey who they truly are with their teeth.
I completed my undergraduate degree in Exercise Science and Kinesiology at Utah State University, the same school where Tami studied, only a few years later. After graduating from Utah State I attended "the" Ohio State University and graduated with a Doctorate of Dental Surgery. During my time in Ohio, I had the opportunity to work very closely with an oral surgeon in advanced surgical cases. I learned to remove complicated third molars, place implants and manage patients during general anesthesia.
While I love Ohio, my wife, Lacey, and I wanted to be closer to our families so we decided to move back west. We landed in Tucson and fell in love! I worked as an associate for a few months here in Tucson and then after meeting Dr. Sailer, had the opportunity to join his practice as a partner. Dr. Sailer has since fully retired to the sandy beaches of Santa Barbara, but continues to be an influence on the type of dentistry we do and the way we treat our patients here at Designer Dental Group.
My promise to you is that you will be treated like family and that our office will meet your highest expectations!
