Meet Your Doctor
Dr. Lyman earned his bachelor’s degree from Arizona State University (but don’t hold that against him…he says he’s about to become U of A’s biggest fan). After he graduated from ASU, Summa Cum Laude (top of his class), he was accepted into A.T. Still University, (Arizona School of Dentistry and Oral Health) where he earned his Certificate of Public Health with a Dental Emphasis and became a Doctor of Dental Medicine.
While attending dental school he was involved in three major research groups, which gave him much experience in dental implants, grafting, endodontic and extractions. He is always interested in continued education, locally and nationally, and committed to knowing the best and most current techniques, treatments and technology available, not only because this is the industry he loves, but because he knows his patients expect unsurpassed care and he expects that of himself too.
Also while attending dental school he was privileged to serve with his classmates in elected positions of several clubs including: community service chairperson, Web development Manager, President/Founder of Dental Anesthesia Club, Executive Board Member of Dental Surgical Specialty (2 years), Class President (3 years) Student Ambassador (4 years). Besides serving with classmates he also enjoyed serving in the community at “Give Kids a Smile”, “AZ Mission of Mercy”, “Day for Special Smiles” and “Latin World Ministries”. If you can’t tell, Dr. Lyman loves people and dentistry!
After graduating from dental school Dr. Lyman took an internship in Galveston, TX to learn the full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery. From there he took a position as an associate dentist in a private practice learning the “ins and outs” of general dentistry with more than 50% of his patients being children, which he REALLY enjoyed.
Dr. Lyman has spent most of his life in Arizona. Before attending college, Dr. Lyman spent 2 years in Mississippi as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints speaking Spanish. When he and his wife (a native Arizonan) learned a dental practice was available in Tucson ARIZONA, they jumped at the opportunity to move their family back home. In their free time, you can usually find the Lyman’s (including their 3 children…soon to be 4) exploring local attractions, attending sporting or cultural events, playing at a park, hiking, swimming or riding bikes.
We are very excited for you to meet Dr. Lyman, we know you are going to love him!
