Dr. Drew’s Background
Dr. Drew earned his Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree from the State University of New York at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine.
After graduation he spent a year in a highly sought after advanced education residency program. This gave him significant experience and training beyond the standard dental education and accelerated his practice of dentistry. Following his residency he spent four years in a large group medical and dental practice in Wisconsin where he was appointed as the department chairman overseeing 4 dentist and 1 oral surgeon. At the time he relocated his family back west to Idaho he was asked to oversee 6 clinics and 30 dentists as a regional director. Dr. Drew turned down the offer to pursue the relocation of his family and his passion of private practice. In his previous position Dr. Drew received referrals from other dentists in the practice to provide the treatment of more complex and challenging dental cases. Doing so has allowed Dr. Drew to expand his skillset and fine tune his skills that he learned in dental school and during residency.
