Dr. Davidson has been practicing in El Dorado County since 1990. He received his Doctor of Dental Surgery (D.D.S.) from University of the Pacific’s School of Dentistry. Since earning his degree, he has devoted thousands of hours to continuing education courses so that he can provide innovative, quality care for his patients. Even outside Above the Gate Dentistry, Dr. Davidson is always working hard and helping others—he seems to find endless projects that need to be done. When he does make time to have some fun, he spends it hiking, boating, snowboarding, motorcycle riding, and going on epic adventures with his wife, five kids, and recently born grandchildren. His team loves his amazing work ethic!
Dr. Tuttle became a partner in the practice in 2004 after receiving his Doctor of Dental Surgery (D.D.S.) from University of the Pacific’s School of Dentistry. As a technology enthusiast, he loves to stay up on everything that's new: from evaluating dental instruments and products to advising and teaching labs and other dentists. Most of his time Dr. Tuttle spends working diligently to keep the teeth of El Dorado County happy and healthy by using predictable techniques and advanced equipment. Outside of the office, he loves finding adventures to share with his friends and family, especially when those adventures include hiking to local waterfalls! His team loves having his thorough and ambitious personality at our office!
Dr. Brock has joined our practice in 2019 after studying with the Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry (same school as above, with a new name). El Dorado County has a special place in his heart, and he is very glad to be back from the big City to serve his hometown. Dr. Brock has recently participated in elite, up-to-date hands-on training of dental techniques and technology, and he is ready to bring his expertise and hard-working attitude here to Above the Gate Dentistry. He is an excellent husband and an eager father of one boy, and one on the way. Please help us welcome Dr. Brock!
