Meet Dr. Reid

Alan D. Reid, DMD


​ I was born in Escondido California, but moved around a lot because of my fathers work in the explosives  industry. In the early 90’s my family moved to Yuba City where I ended up graduating from high school.  

 My wife, Jerusha and I met each other in high school, but we didn’t start dating until after I had served a  2 year mission for my church in Mexico City, Mexico and both of us had gone to a year or so of college.  After  Jerusha served a mission in Brazil we were married in 2002 and over the last 11yrs we’ve had an  amazing  time raising our 3 girls and 1 boy.

 When I returned to college after my mission I realized that I wanted to go into healthcare and switched  majors from art to biology. I decided on dentistry because I felt it would fulfill my desire to be directly  involved in patient care and utilize the hand-eye coordination I had developed over years of drawing.

 

 In 2006 I graduated with B.S. in Biology from BYU-Idaho and spent the next 4 years in Boston attending Tufts Dental School. During dental school I applied for and received the Health Professions Scholarship through the US Army.  After graduating I served my 3 year commitment to the military as a Captain in the Army Dental Corps at Fort Bliss in El Paso, TX.

 

 I am extremely excited to be working alongside Dr. Reading as he was one of the doctors that inspired me to become a dentist. His kind and professional staff and years of experience are exactly what I was hoping to find as I made the transition from military to civilian practice.
