Dr. Western is an Arizona native, born and raised in the Phoenix valley. He received a baseball scholarship to Grand Canyon University and graduated with a degree in biology with honors, Summa Cum Laude. Following graduation he was one of the few honored with a scholarship from the state of Arizona to attend dental school at University of the Pacific in San Francisco, the only accelerated dental school program in the U.S.
After completing dental school, he returned to Arizona to practice in the Phoenix valley. Although he learned a great deal at the Phoenix practice, he felt it was time for a change. He jumped at the opportunity to purchase a practice that is geared toward offering exceptional dental care that solely focuses on the patient.
He strives to provide a personable dental experience and he’s constantly learning the latest dental technology and techniques to make sure every patient receives superior care. Dr. Western is excited for the future of Our Family Dentist and is thrilled to be part of such a wonderful team.
Although he prides himself on offering quality patient care, his most treasured moments are spent with his wife and two young children. They love exploring the Prescott area and often partake in the wide array of outdoor recreational activities offered in town.
Dr. Western is also a huge sports fan and roots for all the Arizona teams. In his spare time he enjoys traveling, landscape photography and working on perfecting his golf game.
