Meet the Doctors
It has been an exciting last few years for us! The dream of being a Group Practice is finally coming to fruition. Jon and I are pleased to announce the addition of two new Doctors to our Dental Team!
Dr Greg Gardner and Dr Enos Heinzen joined us in August. Both Doctors graduated from the University of Pacific’s School of Dentistry. They then each went on to complete post graduate training programs in all aspects of general dentistry including advanced pediatric dentistry.
Dr Gardner will be primarily in our Redding office. He grew up in Colorado and is practiced in the state sport of skiing. He met his wife of 6 years, Laura, in her hometown of Irvine, CA. They have a son and are expecting their second child in January. Laura’s family had a history of house-boating on Lake Shasta each summer for the last 25 years, and so the Gardner family is no stranger to the Redding area. Dr. Gardner enjoys the outdoors no matter the season, favors experiencing new cultures through food, and loves traveling with his wife – but sometimes a lazy Saturday morning with the family is just what the doctor ordered. Dr Gardner and his wife look forward to becoming part of the Redding community and raising their family here.
Dr Heinzen will primarily be in our Red Bluff office. He was born and raised in Stockton, California. While growing up, he enjoyed playing the violin in the county youth orchestra, playing little league baseball, still life photography, music concerts and earning his Eagle Scout award. He and his wife Lindsay, of 8 years, have been blessed with 3 amazing children; an imaginative 4.5 yr. old boy, Lucas and 2 spirited girls, 2 year old Elliot and 2 month old Linden. They have been looking for a place like Redding to plant their roots in and grow with the community. In his spare time, Dr Heinzen enjoys cooking and baking, reading, watching movies, listening to music, dabbling in sculpture, being a science nerd, taking part in community outreach programs, and camping. Above all, he loves to just spend time with his wife and kids.
There are so many advantages to having a real group practice! We can offer an even broader range of services so that most all of your dental needs can be met under one roof.
The highest compliment you pay our office is when you refer friends and family to become a part of our patient family. Dr’s Gardner and Heinzen have moved here with their families to make this home. They are planting their ’roots’ here. If you have family or friends who would like to experience great dental care in outstanding facilities with amazing staff and doctors please invite them to come see us!
