Education and Experience: B.A. in Romance Languages with an emphasis in Spanish Literature from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University of North Carolina School of Dentistry. He completed his residency at the Washington D.C. Veteran’s Affairs Medical Center where he received extensive training in all forms of restorative dentistry including endodontics (root canals), fixed and removable prosthetics (crowns, bridges and dentures). Dr. White received training in implantology, conscious sedation, oral surgery, sleep apnea and orofacial pain management and is currently receiving extensive education in orthodontics. He currently works in private practice in Washington D.C.
Dr. White does not just teach about the connection between mouth and body, he also emphasizes the importance between the mouth and mind. He understands the way you feel about your smile is directly correlated to the way that you feel about yourself and is a huge advocate in the preservation of his patient’s mental health. Through an interdisciplinary approach, he works strategically to improve the esthetics and function of his patient’s smile.
Dr. White’s passion is educating his patients on the importance of their oral health and how it has a major influence on the rest of their body. He understands that many people only see a dentist once or twice a year, thus he strives to equip his patients with the tools and information they need to practice effective preventative care everyday between their appointments.
