Dr. Lane’s passion to pursue dentistry was strongly influenced his father and grandfather, both dentists. He received his Bachelor’s degree from Northern Arizona University and Doctorate of Dental Surgery with Honors in Esthetic Dentistry from Loma Linda University in Loma Linda, California. He loves the outdoors and when not practicing dentistry, he enjoys hiking, fishing, hunting, and spending time with his wife and their dogs.
