My name is Aaron Norman and I am thrilled to be joining the practice with my father.  I graduated with my Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and History from the College of Idaho in Caldwell, Idaho in 1999.  After graduation I continued my work with the United States Disabled Alpine Ski Team, which began in 1998, until the Salt Lake City Paralympics in 2002.  In 2006 I married my beautiful wife Annie, and in 2007 we moved to Mexico where I began dental school at Universidad Autonoma de Guadalajara in Guadalajara, Mexico.  While in Mexico we started our family, starting with our first daughter Sascha in 2009, and concluding with our fraternal twins, Nicolas and Atalie, in 2010.  
I graduated summa cum laude and valedictorian of my class in Mexico in 2011 and was awarded the degree of Cirujano Dentista (CD {dental surgeon}), and in 2012 I began the International Dental Program at Loma Linda University School of Dentistry in Loma Linda, California.  This 24-month program finished in 2014 with the awarding of my Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree.  Annie, the kids, and I are thrilled to be back in beautiful Northern California with our families.  We are also excited to enjoy all the outdoors has to offer, such as hiking, biking, swimming, and skiing.   
It is a pleasure to be working my father and his staff, and continuing to provide caring, comprehensive dental care to our patients.
