Some of Dr. Adam Garfinkle’s earliest memories involve spending time at the dentist. Having both a father and uncle in the profession, Dr. Adam was exposed to dentistry from the time he could walk. Growing up, he saw not only the joy it brought his dad to work as a dentist, but the joy it brought his patients as they achieved their goals and maintained a beautiful smile.
After studying Industrial and Operational Engineering at the University of Michigan, Dr. Adam continued on to receive his Doctorate of Dental Surgery (DDS). While a student, Dr. Adam discovered a love for more complex and surgical procedures. To gain more knowledge in treating these specific types of cases, he continued on in his studies and completed a hospital residency at St. Joseph Mercy in suburban Detroit.
As a Michigan transplant, Dr. Adam is loving his new home with his growing family in sunny Southern California. In his spare time, Dr. Adam loves anything that allows him to spend time outdoors – running, hiking, golfing, or just taking his dog Meeka on long walks. On Sundays, you can find Dr. Adam rooting on his hometown Lions!
