About Dr. Phillips

Dr. Phillips was born in Livermore, California, part of the suburban San Francisco Bay Area. His family moved to Arizona in 1985 and has been here since. Dr. Phillips’ life experiences have allowed him the opportunity to see unique parts of the world and to be able to relate to a lot of different types of people. The part of his life he is proudest of is his family. He and his wife, Karyn (who is a hygienist), have been married for 17 years, and have 3 daughters.

Dr. Phillips has significant experience in all areas of oral surgery but has an intense interest in dental implants, grafting, treatment of facial infections, and sinus lifts (sinus augmentations). He also enjoys being a “Jack of all trades”, and can do most of your work without referring it out to specialists, when appropriate. He cares deeply about his patients, is a team player with co-workers and tries to keep things light through humor and camaraderie.

Outside of the office, Dr. Phillips enjoys playing tennis, snowboarding, traveling and reading.
