David is a Dental Assistant for Dr. Finkler. “I joined CWE with a B.S. in Biology from CNU and a M.S. in Physiology and Biophysics from VCU.  I grew up in Forest VA, the son of a Latin teacher and a dentist. One Sunday afternoon when I was 15, I chipped my best friend’s front teeth while playing lacrosse and had to stand in as the dental assistant for the emergency work. From then on, I decided that I would like to work in dentistry and spent my school breaks working as an assistant in my dad’s practice. I love working with patients and helping them feel comfortable and maintain a healthy smile. My wife, Melissa, and I enjoy camping with our two dogs, traveling as often as we can, and attending music concerts and shows.
