Dr. Porter

Dr. Porter

Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry

Dr. Porter is an old timer in Dentistry with more than 25 years experience. He has taken the time to learn Orthodontics and Implants to achieve optimum patient care. Few dentists can make this claim. Before becoming a dentist he was an Engineer in the Semiconductor field working in Southern California.

He holds a Master’s Degree in Physics and one in Electrical Engineering. However he finds its more fun to work with people (most of the time).

He went to Dental School in Portland, Oregon; where it rains most of the year. His first practice was in Lake Havasu, and he has been working in Fountain Hills for the past 12 years.
