From the Bluegrass state of Kentucky, Dr. John Reid was inspired to go into the field of health care by his father, an oral surgeon; his mother, a nurse and dental hygienist; and his sister, an internal medicine doctor. During his hospital training in dental school, Dr. Reid realized that he wanted to do more in terms of medical training and treating surgical emergencies. He met Dr. Beech during his residency and was excited to move to California to go into practice with his colleague and friend.
Dr. Reid helps his patients feel comfortable and listens to their concerns. He finds it rewarding to see a patient happy and healthy following successful surgery and revels in the fact that they offer in-house procedures instead of having patients travel to a surgery center or hospital. Dr. Reid has worked hard to create a compassionate environment that is dynamically skilled and technologically advanced. He takes great pride in what he does and simply loves to help people.
Dr. Reid earned a bachelor’s degree in science from the University of Mississippi in 2004. He attended dental school at the University of Louisville, KY, and graduated in 2008 with a Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree. After a 1-year internship at LSU in New Orleans, he completed a 4-year residency at John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County, which is where he met his wife.
Dr. Reid is board-certified by the American Board of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery. To uphold this honorable status, he must demonstrate superior health care through training, experience, and knowledge. He is an active member of the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, The California Society of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, and The American Dental Association.
One big reason that he and his wife moved to California was to spend time hiking and being outdoors on beautiful beaches and mountains. He enjoys playing golf when he can, but most of his time is spent taking care of his newborn daughter.
