Dr. Alkire's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Alkire "Prior to becoming an orthodontist, Dr. Alkire received a Bachelor of Science in Physiology from the University of California, Davis where he was on the High Honor Role. He then attended the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry in San Francisco, CA where he received highest honors and was accepted into the exclusive Omicron Kappa Upsilon (OKU) National Dental Honor Society. Dr. Alkire then attended the Orthodontic Residency at Wilford Hall Medical Center, Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, TX. Dr. Alkire started his dental career in the military after being awarded a full military scholarship to attend a prestigious, private dental school in San Francisco, CA. He was a military officer for over nine years, leaving with an Honorable Discharge in the rank of Major. His first duty station was Fort Bragg, NC where he was a General Dentist in support of the 82nd Airborne.
