Paul R. Snow, DMD
The mouth is where it all begins, which sets up the health of the body. For the past 37 years, I’ve approached dentistry from a whole body perspective. I love the challenge of teaching my patients what is actually happening in their mouths when problems occur, and why it is important to look at the whole mouth rather than just a tooth.
I find the most passion in my work as I am able to help patients understand the connection between their teeth, mouth, jaw function, and the rest of their body. When I see the positive changes that occur in the lives of my patients because of the knowledge and care they’ve received at our office, I know I’ve done my job well.
Education and Continuing Education
I completed my undergraduate studies at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, after which I attended and graduated from the University of Oregon Dental School in 1976. However, my thirst for knowledge did not stop there.
Over the past 25 years I have actively pursued continuing education in order to be in a position to better treat and serve my patients. Included in this education are six years studying at the L. D. Pankey Institute, four years studying with Peter Dawson, and four years studying with Oragnathic Bioesthetic International (OBI). The principals I have gleaned from these years of study are invaluable in helping me diagnose and treat patients with TMJ problems, headaches, and wear of the teeth. A huge bonus to the patient is the fabulous cosmetic result.

Outside the Office
A native of Portland, OR, I have called the northeast Mesa area my home for 37 years. My wife of 42 years and I have been blessed with six children and 23 grandchildren. Our youngest son is currently in dental school and will be joining the practice when he graduates. We all truly look forward to that experience.
When I’m not helping to improve the lives of my patients in the office or spending time with my family, I can most often be found on the golf course, even if it’s 115 degrees! Faith is also an important part of my life, and as I strive to always be in tune with God, my wife and I also teach a parenting class to couples who are interested in teaching their children honorable principles.
