Meet Dr. Snell

We have been excited to have Dr. Heath Snell join our practice. Not only is he incredibly good at what he does, he is an incredible person as well. We hope you get to meet him soon! Here is a little more about him:

Dr. Heath Snell completed his undergraduate studies, graduating Summa Cum Laude, from Arizona State University. He then went on to pursue his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Colorado School of Dentistry. While in dental school Dr. Snell received several honors and awards and was nominated in to the prestigious Omicron Kappa Upsilon dental honors society.

Following dental school, Dr. Snell completed a one-year course of study in Advanced Education in General Dentistry where he gained the needed training to perform such complex dental procedures as placement of dental implants and extraction of wisdom teeth. Because of this extra training, he is also certified to perform “sleep dentistry” using either oral or IV sedation.

Dr. Snell is a member of the American Dental Association, the Arizona Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry, and the American Dental Society of Dental Anesthesiology.

When he is not working, Dr. Snell really enjoys spending time with his wife, Chelsea, and their three kids, Brooklyn, Caden and Brynlie. He also enjoys athletics, photography, and is very active in his church and community.
