Alan D. Reid
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.
