Periodontist in Palm Desert
Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology
Dr. Driver is a dental specialist with over 13 years of experience serving the periodontal and implant needs of the Coachella Valley dental community. Working in a very busy and technically demanding office has helped him to hone his skills in all areas of Periodontics, with extensive experience in implant, cosmetic, and reconstructive procedures. He believes in thinking outside the box and tailoring customized treatment decisions to meet his patients' dental goals in a comfortable environment.
Dr. Driver is a 2004 graduate of the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Dentistry. He has also received a health professions scholarship from the Navy and, following graduation, completed a General Practice Residency at Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton. He was subsequently attached to the 1st Dental Battalion (United States Marine Corps) and served a seven-month tour of duty with the 1st Medical Battalion in Al Asad, Iraq. While in the country, he has also worked as a triage officer and general dentist at a very busy level II trauma facility serving a population of over 16,000 military personnel, contractors, and Iraqi civilians. It was during this time that he solidified his interest in surgery. Following active duty, he was accepted into the Advanced Periodontics Residency program at the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Dentistry and completed that program in 2010.
He has also received good training and working experience covering all progressive areas of modern Periodontics. Following his residency, he has also successfully challenged the written and oral Board Certification exams. He also holds a Board Certified Diplomate status since 2011 and a California I.V. conscious sedation permit.
When not in the office, Dr. Driver enjoys spending time with his wife, 3-year-old daughter, and two rescue dogs exploring National Parks and going on camping adventures.
