Homegrown in southern California, Dr. Rex graduated from UCLA with a degree in Psychobiology. He pursued his dental career in New York City and earned his Doctorate of Dental Surgery from Columbia University. Dr. Rex went on to further his education, completing a General Practice Residency at St. Barnabas Hospital, a level 1 trauma center in the Bronx.
After 5 incredible years in the city that never sleeps, Dr. Rex returned home to California to serve his community as a general dentist for several years. It was during this that he discovered his true passion for creating smiles in children.
With a new mission in mind, Dr. Rex returned to the Big Apple for a second stint, completing a two-year specialty program at New York University and earning his certificate in Pediatric Dentistry. He was awarded "Outstanding Presentation by a Resident in Pediatric Dentistry" for NYU's Annual Research Day, a distinction given to only one resident in the pediatric dental department. Dr Rex even participated in several global outreach programs, going to places such as Nepal and rural Maine, where he provided free dental services to school children facing barriers to oral healthcare.
Dr. Rex continues to take courses in pediatric dentistry and stays current on all topics and techniques. He is a licensed pediatric dentist in New York and California and an active member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, California Society of Pediatric Dentistry, California Dental Association, and American Dental Association.
During his free time, Dr. Rex enjoys the great outdoors (biking, tennis, running, swimming, hiking) and the not-so-great indoors (video games, video games, and kicking butt in more video games).
