About Dr. David Potts

Dr. Potts is not your ordinary family dentist
After graduating from dental school, Dr. Potts wasn’t content with confining himself to general family dentistry. He began post-graduate training in several specialized areas, a practice he has continued throughout his career.
Troubled by the discomfort some patients felt getting dental care, he joined the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation. He has received enough training in sedation dentistry to become a Fellow in that organization.
He was also interested in complex restorative dentistry. The most respected institutions for providing that training are the Pankey Institute and the Dawson Academy, where Dr. Potts has taken multiple courses.
He has also pursued extensive training in the placement and restoration of dental implants.
