Meet Chris Herman of Dr. Chris Herman DDS in Oceanside

Today we’d like to introduce you to Chris Herman.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
While growing up in Southern California, I had an uncle that I looked up to who was a dentist. He demonstrated an enjoyment for his job, he was a skilled professional, he had great work ethics, and was able to make dramatic differences in people’s lives.

I met my wife in first grade and we now live in North San Diego County with our 3 kids. I earned a Bachelor of Science in Biology and Biomedical Sciences from CSU San Bernardino and then pursued a Masters Degree in Public Health in Health Administration from Loma Linda University. I received my Doctor of Dental Surgery in 2006 from the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry in San Francisco, CA. After working in various dental offices for over 5 years, I decided to purchase my own dental practice where I could treat my patients with the type of care I would want my family to receive.

I am an active member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the American Dental Association, California Dental Association, San Diego Dental Society. To stay on top of the latest advancements, I regularly attend continuing education courses learning the latest techniques in restorative and cosmetic dentistry. Chris Herman Dental Office has been voted Union Tribune’s San Diego’s Best Dentist for 2 years in a row. Also listed in San Diego magazine as a top dentist.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
It wasn’t a smooth road.

After graduating from UOP Dental School in San Francisco we moved our family to San Diego. After arriving in San Diego I had a hard time finding a practice to work at that had the high-quality standards and high quality of dental care that I wanted to provide.

I worked at multiple dental practices trying to find the perfect fit for my style of dental care from 2006-2008. After two years of working in high volume practices where patient care wasn’t the practice top priority, I was able to purchase a practice of my own. After purchasing my practice of my own, I was in full control of my patient’s high-quality care.
