Dr. Swisher's dental career unofficially began in Kenya with his father in 1996. During this time period, he took several trips with his father doing volunteer dental work in places such as Kenya, Borneo, Jamaica, Mexico, Guatemala, Belize, Nicaragua, and South Africa. His career officially began upon graduating from Loma Linda University School of Dentistry in 2004. After several years of working in Southern California, he decided to further his training by entering a residency in Pediatric Dentistry at St. Barnabas Hospital, in the Bronx, NY. Here he spent much of his time working with special needs children and adults at the Rose F. Kennedy Dental Center for Mental Retardation at the Einstein School of Medicine. Following residency, Dr. Swisher took on traveling jobs working at Community Health clinics in Hawaii, then back to New
York to work in private practice. In 2012, he found himself on another traveling job, but this time in Hood River, where his father grew up. He worked for two and a half years at A Kidz Dental Zone, before starting his own practice.
Currently, he holds an affiliate faculty position at the University of Washington, Dept. of Pediatric Dentistry. He is the local ABCD (Access to Baby and Child Dentistry) representative for the state of Washington. And in 2011, he became a diplomat of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. When he's not in the office, you'll likely find him somewhere outdoors enjoying life.
I'm from Hood River. Outside of work, you will find me enjoying time with family and friends. For the last 10 years I've been working in both the medical field, for the school district, and interpreting, and I've enjoyed every minute of it. I'm happy to take on a new position that allows me to continue working within the community.
I grew up locally and graduated high school from Hood River. Since then, I've worked in several different settings, the last three years being the dental field and I love what I do. When I’m not in the office you can find me fly fishing, snowboarding, hiking, and wakeboarding
A native of Hood River, you will find me enjoying hiking, rock climbing, photography, art, music, or spending time with my niece. I've spent several of the last few years working in the dental department at One Community Health. I appreciate the world and what it offers and conveying that happiness and creativity to patients.
