Our Story: A Journey from Passion to Practice
Challenge to the Corporate Dental Norm Dr. Richard Dawson and Dr. John Turke, two passionate dental professionals, were both trained at the renowned Midwestern University College of Dental Medicine, located just a mile away from our clinic. Their experiences in the world of corporate dentistry raised concerns. They realized that often, decisions impacting patient care were being made not by seasoned clinicians, but by non-clinical executives. This disconnect between patient needs and business objectives drove them to think differently.
On February 13th, 2023, a vision transformed into reality: Smile Science Dental Spa opened its doors. Distancing from the impersonal nature and one-size-fits-all approach of many corporate dental chains, Smile Science Dental Spa was founded with one core mission: to place patients at the forefront of all decisions.
Reimagining the Dental Experience Beyond just offering dental treatments, Dr. Dawson and Dr. Turke aimed to create a sanctuary. A place where every patient isn’t just another appointment but an individual with unique dental needs and aspirations. Here, patients aren’t mere recipients of care; they are partners in their oral health journey.
This isn’t just a dental practice; it’s a movement to revolutionize the perception and experience of dentistry. It’s an endeavor to integrate clinical expertise with genuine empathy. It’s about making patients feel valued, understood, and genuinely excited about achieving optimal oral health.
In Pursuit of Independence and Excellence The proximity to their alma mater, Midwestern University College of Dental Medicine, serves as a constant reminder of their commitment to excellence and continued learning. By establishing Smile Science Dental Spa in the heart of Glendale, AZ, Dr. Dawson and Dr. Turke have not only brought their expertise closer to the community but have also emphasized the importance of personal touch in the world of dentistry.
Today, at Smile Science Dental Spa, we proudly champion a patient-centric approach. We invite you to join us on this journey, where your oral health dreams meet our unwavering passion and dedication.
We're Artists, Scientists, and Awkward Dancers
At the intersection of precision and passion, Dr. Dawson and Dr. Turke come together, embodying both the meticulousness of a scientist and the flair of an artist. But that’s not where their personalities end; they’re also known to indulge in the occasional awkward dance-off.
Their journey began at the esteemed Midwestern University School of Dental Medicine in Glendale, AZ. A sense of camaraderie and a shared vision of exceptional patient care blossomed during their time there. This bond was solidified further when they trained at the Implant Pathway, honing their skills in cutting-edge dental implant procedures. From providing traditional braces to Invisalign®, they are able to provide comprehensive orthodontic services for most adults.
Before establishing Smile Science Dental Spa, both Dr. Dawson and Dr. Turke gained invaluable experience working in high-volume corporate practices that catered predominantly to Medicaid patients. This environment honed their skills in handling a myriad of dental emergencies, from root canals and tooth extractions to more intricate cases, fortifying their reputation as proficient and compassionate dental professionals.
While both bring a wealth of expertise to the table, Dr. Dawson furthered his commitment to excellence by immersing himself in a multitude of specialized training. He completed the Comprehensive Straight Wire Orthodontics courses under the tutelage of Dr. Bradford R. Williams at the American Orthodontic Society. Additionally, he has had the privilege to train under Bill Strupp, a global authority in restorative and cosmetic dentistry, via the Simplifying Complex Seminar. This rigorous training repertoire extends to obtaining a 1303 Oral Conscious Sedation permit from the State of Arizona, allowing him to offer patients the comfort of moderate conscious sedation safely within the office environment. His relentless pursuit of knowledge also led him to the Spear Institute, where he delved deep into lecture series covering cosmetic, implant, and restorative dentistry.
Yet, it’s not just about the qualifications. Their deep roots in the Glendale community give them an unmatched understanding of local needs and aspirations. Together, Dr. Dawson and Dr. Turke have not only built a dental practice but have also nurtured a community haven. At Smile Science Dental Spa, they seamlessly blend their individual strengths to craft smiles, foster trust, and ensure that every patient feels at home, whether they’re coming in for a routine check-up or a transformative dental procedure.
Their commitment to Glendale, their passion for dentistry, and yes, even their awkward dance moves, make them a duo that’s both relatable and revered. At Smile Science Dental Spa, you’re not just another patient; you’re a valued member of a community where science meets art, and where dentistry is danced to a different beat.
