More About David Halls, DMD, DABOI, FAGD
Dr. Halls grew up in the White Mountains and graduated from Blue Ridge High School. He left Pinetop to continue his education at Brigham Young University, where he graduated with his bachelor's degree in science. During his time at BYU, he took two years away from his studies to serve a mission for his church. He served in southern Argentina where he learned to speak fluent Spanish. Following his mission and undergraduate studies, Dr. Halls attended dental school at Case Western Reserve University School of Dentistry in Cleveland, OH. Dr. Halls knew he wanted to move back to the White Mountains and wanted to be able to give his patients a broader scope of care than what he learned in dental school. This led to him serving in the United State Air Force where he received extensive post-graduate training serving under the guidance of board-certified specialists in nearly all dental specialties. He especially enjoyed surgery, working with oral and maxilofacial surgeons and periodontists and as a result, was assigned to work for the next two years at an Air Force base that required a dentist proficient in surgery and IV sedation. This broad base of knowledge enables him to provide a broader scope of treatment reducing the need to refer to outside specialists, thus simplifying your care.
Dr. Halls is known for the gentle care he gives his patients, as well as his attention to detail.
After leaving the USAF in 2005, Dr. Halls opened a private general dentistry office in the White Mountains of Arizona, where he has since offered comprehensive treatment. Dr. Halls continues to expand his scope on knowledge by attending continuing education courses, making it possible to give his patients outstanding care here in our community. He strives to keep up with the latest trends and technology in dentistry. During 2016-2017, Dr. Halls attended The Advanced Dental Implant Institute under world renowned implant and bone grafting pioneer, Dr. Hilt Tatum in San Juan, Puerto Rico. While there, he completed a clinical residency with the American Academy of Implant Dentistry MaxiCourse Program. The course spanned over a 10 month period focusing on all surgical aspects of implant dentistry, from bone augmentation to tissue management and implant placement. Dr. Halls has been placing implants and bone grafts for years, but this course has given him further knowledge and more advanced techniques he can offer his patients. Since this course, Dr. Halls has continued to take courses in bone and tissue grafting techniques and dental implant placement to stay current with the most effective practices possible. This active pursuit in continued study of implant dentistry, followed by rigorous testing led Dr. Halls to become a Diplomate of the American Board of Oral Implantology/Implant Dentistry (ABOI/ID), making Dr. Halls one of the worldwide leading experts in implant care.
Dr. Halls is known for the gentle care he gives his patients, as well as his attention to detail. He loves getting to know his patients and enjoys the lasting relationships that are formed.
Dr. Halls and his wife, Cherilyn are the proud parents of five active children. When Dr. Halls is not at work, he can be found restoring his old Land Cruiser with his daughter, watching his kids play sports, or enjoying the outdoors with them in our beautiful White Mountains.
