Dr. Davis relocated to the Northwest with his wife, Sarah, who was serving in the U.S. Navy and currently is an active reservist. They enjoyed the Pacific Northwest so much that they decided to stay. In his free time he enjoys traveling, skiing, fishing and barbecuing.
Dr. Davis loves helping patients get the smile they want and overcoming any fears they may have. Some of the greatest responses have come through the Davis Dental Group's Invisalign treatments and Sedation Dentistry practices. The smile patients have always wanted is achieved faster and easier than expected.
