Outside the Office

One thing many people may not know about Dr. Davies is that he is a fourth-generation dentist. His great-grandfather, grandmother, and father were all dentists before him. He also has two sisters, a brother, a sister-in-law, and a wife who are all currently dentists. Dentistry runs in Dr. Davies' family; maybe that is where he got his passion for orthodontics!
