Dr. Rowan's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Rowan "Dr. Chad is a native of the Central Valley and glad to be home among friends and family . Coming from a family of dentists, he grew up seeing his father, grandfather, and uncles improve the smiles and lives of those they treated and now he happily does the same for his own patients. Dr. Chad says that his favorite part of being an orthodontist is getting to know his patients, becoming their friend, and watching their transformation as their new smiles develop. Dr. Chad is an active member of his church and works with its youth group. Having achieved Eagle Scout distinction in his younger years, he is still involved in the Boy Scout program and acts as a Cub Scout Master overseeing the activities of more than 30 Cub Scouts on a weekly basis. He believes education is a key to opportunity and has worked closely with many local educators to give presentations in schools on learning important life skills as well as on proper oral health care. Dr. Chad and his wife, Christy, have been married for ten years and they have five energetic boys. They love taking trips and exploring different parts of the country, especially those with historical significance. Another favorite family activity he and his boys share is wrestling, and Dr. Chad thinks one of life's greatest mysteries that he still hasn't figured a way to beat them. A Merced native, Dr. Chad attended both Merced and Golden Valley High Schools, graduating from the latter school's inaugural class. He attendedBrigham Young University where he majored in American Studies and graduated with honors after publishing a thesis on The American Dream Among Mexican Immigrants. Fluent in Spanish, Dr. Chad loves to travel and has spent considerable time in Mexico, Honduras, and other Latin American Countries. Dr. Chad received his dental and orthodontic training at some of the finest universities in the United States. UCLA School of Dentistry's scores and performance consistently ranks among the top three in the country. In addition to its excellent clinical reputation, the school's research funding from the National Institute of Health is unparalleled. Saint Louis University's Center for Advanced Dental Education is a recognized leader in orthodontic training. It has produced more orthodontic graduates and orthodontic research awards than any other program in the world. The residency training program uses the latest technology and methods to train the residents in treating patients. Because of its renowned reputation, dozens of the most recognized orthodontic experts in the world come to lecture or are on faculty at the university. Dr. Chad has served as a member of New Dentist Committee for the California Dental Association and participated in regular meetings in Sacramento to improve the understanding and transition of new dentists into the profession. He has also served in other leadership roles in the American Dental Association. In addition, Dr. Chad is a member of the American Association of Orthodontics, the Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontics, and the Yosemite Dental Society."
