While Dr. Newman has impressive experience in complex restorative cases, his passion lies in helping families achieve excellent dental health, and continuing to help them maintain their strong, beautiful smiles for life. Patients love his easy going, non-judgemental nature and his ability to communicate with them to achieve their desired results. He loves to work with patients to get them healthy. He has a ton of focus on cosmetic and implant dentistry, but some of his favorite patients are the ones that have a large time lapse in care and just want them to get back to healthy functioning. Dr. Newman’s expertise in the field of cosmetic dentistry has also enabled him to deliver stunning changes for people who have long felt self-conscious about their appearance. As much as he enjoys assisting people with dental health matters, he also appreciates that his role as a dentist lets him connect with patients on a personal level, and hear about their lives.
In his free time, Dr. Newman enjoys contributing to his local community by supporting children in scouting, sports, and music. He also helps the community by donating to mission groups, local food banks, and homeless shelters. He worked with Hope Fest providing dentures and appliances to those who have lost their teeth. At home, he enjoys spending time with his wife, Melissa; twins, Jack and Claire; their youngest son, Luke; their cats, Bruce and Sawyer; and their German Shepherd, Annie. Dr. Newman loves to be involved with his kids’ activities including local youth sports and events, and also enjoys cooking, golfing, exercising, and traveling. He loves hiking around various places in Tucson and up on Mt. Lemmon with his German Shepherd, Annie.
