Nicholas G. Mooberry, DDS
I love dentistry because it gives me the opportunity to make positive changes in people's lives and their overall health. Whether that means relieving their pain or enabling them to feel happy with their smile, I find my profession to be very rewarding. I love the opportunity to develop relationships with my patients and to learn from them through their stories and life experiences. Working with so many different people allows me to learn about different cultures and ways of life, and to see what is really important in life.
Education and Continuing Education
I completed my undergraduate work at Northern Arizona University, graduating summa cum laude in 2002. I then attended the University of the Pacific from 2003 to 2006 to pursue my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree, walking as a Salutatorian.
It is extremely important to me to learn about new materials, techniques, and research regarding the human body and the oral environment. This new knowledge is crucial to maintaining a high level of quality dentistry and comfortable care. Every year, I attend several study groups and conferences to further develop my knowledge and skills.
- American Dental Association
- Arizona State Dental Association
- Pima Dental Study Club
- Western Society of Periodontology
- Southern Arizona Dental Society
Life at Home
I am a Tucson native, and have spent all of my life here, except for my time in college. I come from a family of dentists and it makes me proud to serve the same community my grandfather served for 52 years, and my father for 25 years. I am very involved in many local organizations and charities, including St. Elizabeth's, Hope Fest, and Therapeutic Riding of Tucson (TROT). In my spare time, I like working on cars and trucks. I also like to stay active with hiking, working out, sand-duning, and especially surfing.
