Dr. Brown is a native of Southern California, growing up in the Inland Empire high desert area. After high school, he spent four years in the United States Navy as a Hospital Corpsman in San Diego. Once his military duty concluded, he went on to complete his formal education at Loma Linda University. Graduating first with a Bachelor of Science in Human Biology, he then went on to earn his Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree in 1994, where he finished in the top 10% of his class. Caring for his patients and providing them with the best dental treatment is his highest priority. He is continually updating his knowledge through additional courses, study groups and conferences. Dr. Brown also wants to share information with his peers which is what lead him to become an instructor for the Global Dental Implant Academy. His passion and insistence on staying current is clearly represented in the modern, state-of-the-art materials, equipment and techniques that he uses at his StarWhite Dental practice. These new technologies allow him to detect dental problems at early stages and provide dental care with pin-point precision. StarWhite Dental is a multi-specialty office that handles preventative, restorative, orthodontic, implant and cosmetic procedures in house so that Dr. Brown can ensure his patients receive high quality care from start to finish. Dr. Brown’s advice to potential new patients is “Find a dentist you can trust. They should be willing to take the time to listen to you, and in return, give you a detailed explanation of any problem areas found and recommended treatment options.”
