Meet the Dentist

Dr. Howard Shempp
Dentist
I have been practicing dentistry and raising a family in Davis for 38 years. I swam and played water polo at Univeristy of California, Los Angeles and graduated from the Ostrow School of Dentistry at the University of Southern California. I am a member of American Dental Association, California Dental Association, and The Sacramento District Dental Society and Foundation. In addition, I am honored to be an instructor at a university-accredited post-graduate dental education program, The Frontier Dental Institute.

In my free time, I enjoy biking both in the mountains and around the roads near Davis. I am involved with antique cars and motorcycles, and on weekends, I make sure that my collection gets plenty of use.
