Dentist - Owen M. Waldman, DMD
Dr. Owen Waldman grew up in Rockland County, NY and attended Arizona State University where he first fell in love with the Valley of the Sun. He graduated from ASU in 1991, but there were no dental schools in Arizona at the time, so he went back East to attend Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston where he received his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree in 1995. He returned to NY to practice and quickly built his office into one of, if not the, premier practice in Orange County, NY, but always wanted to return to the Valley one day.
In 2005, he followed his dreams, sold his practice in NY, and returned to Arizona, the place where he always felt most at home. Dr. Waldman is know for his excellent and meticulous clinical skill in most all phases of dentistry, his efficiency, relaxed chair-side manner, ability to listen to what his patients' concerns are, and treating each case based on the patient's specific wants and needs.
Dr. Waldman is happily married to his wife Cori, who he has been with for over 20 years. They have four beautiful children West, Cali, twins Briggs and Ellie and their dog Sonny, who keep him very busy when he is out of the office. He enjoys being outdoors, hiking, biking, working out and watching, playing with and coaching his children in their chosen sports.

He began utilizing CT guided implant treatment planning and placement in early 2004, and is one of the most prolific users of the technology in Arizona.
In 2006, he became the first periodontist in Phoenix to incorporate LANAP (laser assisted new attachment procedure into his practice, and in 2007, started utilizing cone beam CT scanner to aid in accurate diagnosis and treatment planning of his periodontal and implant patients.
