Brian Green, D.M.D
Dr. Green grew up in Phoenix, Arizona, but moved out to California where he attend college at Claremont Mckenna College. He often refers to himself as a "big nerd," which is why he worked in research and development for 3M Unitek and ESPE, which are both dental division of 3M. He worked there for a total of 5 years during undergraduate school and while attending Dental school at Tufts University of Dental Medicine. During that period, he lectured on bonding and adhesive and went on to be published in the American Academy of Orthodontics and Dental Facial Orthopedics. It was because of this, he was awarded the Quintessence Award for Student Publishing, which is a national award, while in dental school. He graduated in the clinical top 6% of his class. To continue to stay current with the changes in medicine, Dr. Green does 100+ hours of continuing education every year.
After Dental school, he and his wife Jen moved to the Newport area and became integrated into the community. Dr. Green's community involvement currently has him sitting on the Board with the Newport Beach Chamber of Commerce, he was elected to become one of the civic leaders of the Commodore Club, and is a member of the philanthropic group the Elite OC young professionals society. His affiliation with these organizations has allowed him to help put on the Newport Beach Scholarship Awards Dinner, the Sand Castle Contest, and the Christmas Boat Parade. He also gives back to the East Bluff Elementary School, Our Lady Queen of Angels, Sage High school, and The Pegasus Elementary school.
For fun, Dr. Green is an avid tennis player. He has two little girls which keep him busy during his free time and of course his favorite thing to do is relax with his wife.
