Dr. Dudley

I started dental school with a strong desire to help others. Following an exceptional education at Columbia University School of Dental and Oral Surgery, I returned to my native southern California with the goal to provide my patients excellent dental care in a very friendly, caring environment.

I have remained on the cutting edge of dental care with a career-long pursuit of continuing dental education. In 1978, I became a founding member, and continue to be a current member, of the Laguna Gnathological Research & Study Group, a group of southern California dentists dedicated to excellence in restoring and maintaining normal function of deteriorated dentitions. I studied under individuals such as Dr. Peter Dawson, who has had a profound influence on my treatment skills. I have always focused on helping my patients to have beautiful smiles, and furthered my cosmetic treatment knowledge and skills studying with P.A.C.-Live, the Pacific Aesthetic Continuum.

During my entire career I have been a member of the American Dental Association, the California Dental Association and the Orange County Dental Society. In 1978, I joined the Academy of General Dentistry, a national group that promotes continuing dental education, and have earned my Fellowship in the AGD. I am a former member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and the Newport Harbor Academy of Dentistry.

My wife, Mitzi, and I live in Irvine, Calif. We have a total of five adult children and are just “crazy” about our six grandchildren! In addition to devoting time to my family and my “dental patient family”, Mitzi and I can be found on the golf course (I’ve become a golf “fanatic”) or hiking the trails of Yosemite (to the top of Half Dome!). We have also enjoyed tennis, bicycling (at times in 100, & even 111 mile rides), skiing (Dr. D loves the exhilaration of the speed & challenge, while Mitzi prefers to be more “careful”), in-line skating, the theater and travel.

I extend to you my personal invitation to join my “dental family”. I can promise you that you will be cared for with the highest level of compassion, skill and integrity. It would be my pleasure to get to know you! Please stop in and say hello!
