Meet Dr. Dexter
"I think, at a child's birth, if a mother could ask a fairy godmother to endow it with the most useful gift, that gift would be curiosity." Eleanor Roosevelt
Although he was focused on his dental career, Dr. Dexter studied history in college to broaden his understanding of the present through the prism of the past. His curiosity also motivated him to study abroad in college, learning the languages and cultures of Germany and Spain. Through dental school, Dr. Dexter's curiosity drove him to excel, earning the dean's gold award for academic excellence. His curiosity further motivated him to seek advanced training in general dentistry through a residency at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Beverly Hills. In his daily practice, Dr. Dexter's curiosity drives him to understand the individual behind each tooth and to embrace modern technology in the treatment of each tooth.

Dr. Dexter spent a year of his life serving in Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic. After communism fell in 1989, there were three generations of Czechs who had not had access to western language training. Dr. Dexter served the Czech people by teaching English as a second language to adults and children.
Dr. Dexter decided to attend Loma Linda University School of Dentistry, a school that has service as one of its main charters, operating clinics locally and internationally. While in school, Dr. Dexter took the time to serve the dental needs of the Coachella Valley locally and abroad in Loreto, Mexico. Now Dr. Dexter serves his community every day through his practice. Dr. Dexter is also involved one or two weekends per month in serving underprivileged populations through the On-site dental foundation.
