I grew up around dentists most of my life. Two of my uncles are dentists. Dr. Hugh Charles, who is my Mother’s Brother, encouraged my dental interests as I assisted him in the dental office at various times.

I am the oldest of six, and lived in California most of my life. I have an amazing mother and father who taught me the value of hard work from a young age. They taught me to treat others like I would want to be treated. They encouraged me to always do my best.

The Boy Scouts of America has been a big influence in my life. I love the outdoors and camping is one of my favorite things to do. I earned the rank of Eagle Scout at the age of sixteen.

At the age of nineteen, I served a mission for my church in Asuncion, Paraguay. There I was able to share my faith with others, and do a lot of service. After coming home from my mission I attended Brigham Young University. I continued my dental pursuits by earning a Bachelor’s of Science in Zoology and a minor in Spanish. I was married to my wife, Lisa, my senior year at Brigham Young University. Then, we were off to the University of Iowa for Dental School.

I was fortunate to receive a research scholarship there, where I studied and researched Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (TMD) and Third Molar Extractions (wisdom teeth extractions). While in dental school, two of our children were born.

When I finished my dental degree, DDS, I was accepted to my General Practice Residency Program at the University of Iowa Hospital and Clinics. Here I received extra training in Oral Surgery, Dental Implants, IV Sedation, Orthodontics, and Medicine.

When I finished my residency in 1993, Lisa and I moved to Sacramento, with our two children, to join my uncle Dr. Hugh Charles and my father Blair Moser Sr. as part of the Charles Dental Group.

I have been a part of the Charles Dental Group for almost 24 years now. Two more children have come into our family now, making that a total of four amazing children. We love to be together as a family, and some of our favorite things to do is go boating, camping, and to Santa Cruz.

We are a water loving family, from water skiing, wake boarding, swimming and water polo. I have been involved in the schools here, mostly coaching varsity water polo at El Camino High School. I have also continued my affiliation with the Boy Scouts of America as a Scout Master and District Leader.

Lisa and I have made our home here in Sacramento. We love this area, and all the wonderful amenities it has to offer.

I really enjoy the opportunity I have as a dentist to serve you. I have seen families grow in our Practice and now see their children. I even have a granddaughter of my own, what a wonderful blessing that is.

I also have the privilege of my daughter Bryanne working a as a Dental Hygienist in our Practice. Our Dental Group is truly a family atmosphere. It is a place where you can feel safe, cared for, and loved.

I look forward to caring for you as I do my own family.

My Specialty and Why I Chose It

I am a family practice dentist, which means I provide continuing, comprehensive dental health care for the individual and family. I chose family dentistry because I want to build long lasting relationships with patients while providing comprehensive dental and preventative care.

I find family dentistry exciting in that I can provide definitive care to patients with optimal esthetic and functional results.

My Practice Philosophy

In my practice, I strive to do my very best, every day I will take the time to listen to you and any of your concerns you may have.

My ultimate goal is to treat every individual as if they are a lifelong friend or personal family member.

My Tenure With The Charles Dental Group

I am deeply rooted in the Charles Dental Group practice and I am determined to uphold its excellence.

I began working for the Charles Dental Group at the age of sixteen maintaining its pleasant environment as a landscape/ building maintenance employee.

I worked with the Charles Dental Group for many years while pursuing my career as an oral health care provider. I thoroughly enjoy practicing dentistry utilizing evidence-based medicine, while integrating clinical expertise.

On a Personal Note

I was born and raised in Sacramento, CA. I graduated from California State University, Sacramento with a bachelor’s degree in biology. I then entered University of Nevada, Las Vegas School of Dental Medicine in 2004. I have been married over 13 wonderful years to a very supportive and patient young lady. Together we have four beautiful daughters who keep us busy.

I enjoy many outdoor activities and spending time with family and friends. I personally take interest in surfing, golfing, gardening, scuba diving and of course, dentistry.

With continuous education and training in different areas of dentistry, particularly pediatric dentistry, I am dedicated to providing my patients the most complete and comprehensive treatment options, while ensuring each patient is treated in a comfortable caring environment.

I provide comprehensive dental services, including oral diagnosis, radiology, restorative and cosmetic dentistry, fixed (conventional and Cerec) and partial removable prosthodontics, periodontics, endodontics, pedodontics, oral prophylaxis, emergency care and minor oral maxillofacial surgery. I believe in the importance of educating patients of all ages about good dental habits and making a visit to the dentist a positive experience.

I grew up in southern California with a passion for research and science. After graduating Summa Cum Laude from University of California Los Angeles, I received a Bachelor of Science in Biology with a minor in Near Eastern Languages and Cultures in 2009. While obtaining this degree, I volunteered at community dental clinics and health fairs as well as shadowing a dentist. These opportunities inspired him to pursue a career in dentistry.

To fulfill my aspiration in becoming a dentist, I attended University of California San Francisco School of Dentistry, where I received my Doctor of Dental Surgery in 2013.

Through his efforts with Remote Area Medical (RAM) and UCSF Community Dental Clinic, I provided dental services for patients with limited access to care. Encountering patients suffering from advanced periodontal disease with hopeless dentition sparked my interest to save teeth through different treatment modalities and further my education in periodontics.

Needing some true Italian food in my life, I set out to New York and completed a 36-month specialty advanced training in Periodontics at Stony Brook University School of Dental Medicine.

During my residency, I taught pre-doctoral dental students in clinic and through lectures. In addition, I presented to general dentists at the Suffolk County Dental Society Meeting. Towards the end of my residency, I was chosen to participate in the Straumann National Resident Symposium.

Family, sunny weather, and great opportunities led myself to drive 2,865 miles to Sacramento after graduation. I joined the Charles Dental Group family practice in the summer of 2016. I thrive on providing quality dental care at the highest level of excellence in a comfortable setting.

I provide diagnosis and treatment of the various forms of periodontal diseases, dental extractions, soft and hard tissue grafting, placement of dental implants, and sinus grafting. I believe in providing every patient with comprehensive and individualized care.

I am a member of the American Academy of Periodontology, Western Society of Periodontology, Academy of Microscope Enhanced Dentistry, American Dental Association, California Dental Association, and Sacramento Dental Society.

From the pictures, you can see that I also love a good game of table tennis.
