Dr. Proulx was inspired to pursue a career in dentistry after his first semester in college. Around this time, he met with a few dentists and learned all about how much they loved their career. He also volunteered in a dental clinic that provided pro bono dental care. When he saw first-hand the positive impact dentistry can have on others, he knew he had found the perfect job for him.

Dr. Proulx’s studies began at Brigham Young University, where he majored in Bioinformatics. Next, he attended the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine, which is where he earned his dental doctorate. Over the last 14 years, he has prioritized continuing education.
