Hi, I’m Dr. John Buzza and I have a great job! I’ve been making smiles and lives better since 1983. Until 1997, sleep dentistry – where you’re lightly sedated while we do one or more procedures – was unknown in Santa Rosa until I began to offer it to my patients. I’ve also been a dental instructor on cosmetic dentistry at the Pacific Aesthetic Continuum, a unique program that teaches advanced cosmetic and reconstructive dental techniques to enrich the lives of patients and exceed their expectations.
I’ve presented and facilitated Dental Boot Kamps across the United States and been an instructor for Discus Dental’s PAC Live in San Francisco where I focused on wants-based versus needs-based dentistry. I’m a Distinguished Mentor at the Kois Center and I’ve lectured at the Kois Center Annual Symposium on subjects from Marketing to Practice Administration. I also serve the dental profession by helping practitioners transition into their practices, creating the Dental Professional Opportunities Network and MyDentalChannel.com.
When I’m not working, I love to ski and hike with my wife, Martha. I have two amazing children, Meg and Jack. I’m passionate about aviation and physical fitness, and I strive to maintain balance in my life – and help others do the same in theirs!
