Dr. Salinas opened Compassion Dentistry after practicing dental hygiene for over 15 years. During that time, he learned the most important lessons in building a compassionate dental practice: creating a great, comfortable experience for his patients and building long-term dental health from the foundation up. As a result, Dr. Salinas treats each patient as an individual with individual goals and treatment plans, with total dedication to treating and preventing periodontal disease and maintaining the healthy smiles his patients deserve.

Dr. Salinas earned his Bachelor of Science degree from Northern Arizona University and his Doctorate Degree of Dental Medicine from Tufts University in Boston, MA.
