He can’t wait to welcome you into his dental practice, but first, you can learn a little more about him below.
Why Did You Decide to Become a Dentist?
While playing football in middle school, Dr. Moulton received a scary blow to the face that knocked his two central incisors loose. His dentist helped him keep the teeth instead of removing them, and he was very grateful and impressed with the entire treatment experience. From that point on, he knew he wanted to join the dental field one day too as his career – and all these years later, he’s never regretted that decision for a second.
Where Did You Study Dentistry?
After completing his undergraduate degree at Emory University, Dr. Moulton was awarded his Doctor of Dental Medicine by the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Dentistry. He then completed a one-year residency program with the Veterans Administration Hospital. He is a firm believer that oral healthcare is a discipline where a commitment to lifelong learning is required, which is why he continues to stay abreast of the latest technological developments and treatment methodologies in the field through continuing education. This includes an active membership in the American Dental Association as well as taking several courses through the renowned Spear Institute.
Outside of the Dental Office, What Do You Like to Do?
Dr. Moulton has been married to his wife, Debra, for over 40 years, and they have a daughter named Christina (who is in dental school!) and a son named Patrick. Whenever he has spare time outside of the dental office, his favorite hobbies include playing chess, gardening, reading, and traveling.
