About Dr. Dickinson
Dr. Dickinson's passion and love of dentistry began as a dental laboratory technician. The artistic challenge and satisfaction in helping patients improve their dental health prompted Dr. Dickinson to return to school to complete his undergraduate and dental education.

In 1992, he earned a graduate Certificate in Prosthodontics from Emory University and a Certificate in Maxillofacial Prosthetics from the Naval Postgraduate Dental School.
He was extensively involved in graduate dental education at the National Naval Medical Center, Bethesda, Maryland, and at the Naval Medical Center, San Diego. He retired from the Naval Medical Center, San Diego, in 2000 with the rank of Commander.
Dr. Dickinson fulfilled requirements for Board Certification in the specialty of Prosthodontics in 1997 prior to entering private practice.
