Dr. Petersen's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Petersen "As a California native, I was thrilled to be able to practice in Southern California. My family and I have lived in the Inland Empire for over 13 years. I attended and received a Bachelors Degree in Zoology from California State University, Long Beach in 1983. Then I traveled to Boston, Massachusetts to study Dentistry at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. I received a Doctorate of Dental Medicine in 1987. In 2006, I received the Fellowship of the Academy of General Dentistry Award. In 1997, I began practicing in Hemet. The valley area has been constantly growing and changing since then. I welcome the growth but also enjoy the small town feel of the valley. As the city, and our practice, have grown, we have always worked at keeping a personal relationship with our patients."
