Dr. Andrew Fletcher has been practicing dentistry since his graduation from the University of the Pacific, School of Dentistry in 1995. He began his career in this same office as an associate dentist at Dentistry for Children. In 1998, Dr. Fletcher purchased this practice with a partner and they continued to limit their general dentistry practice to children, until 2001 when Dr. Fletcher converted the practice to a full family practice and began practicing solo.
“Since I began my career, I have been blessed with two things: a great staff and a ton of great patients…throughout the years I have maintained one constant philosophy at my office: treat your patients very very well, and that is what I have tried to do for the past decade.”
Although he began his career working with little mouths, Dr. Fletcher now treats the entire family. “I really enjoy working on different generations of the same family…it is easy to see dental trends throughout a family, but it is also a ton of fun to meet grandparents, parents and children.”
In the last few years, the majority of Dr. Fletcher’s continuing education has come from studying dental implants and the challenge of giving teeth, smiles and functioning bites back to patients that are missing or have lost teeth. Each month he travels to Southern California to meet with several general dentists and specialists from around the United States to treatment plan and discuss different techniques for dental restoration and rehabilitation.
