The father-daughter team at Simpson Dental is pleased to offer beautiful smiles to our neighbors in Phoenix and the surrounding communities.
Lauren P. Salvatore, DDS, was born and raised in Phoenix, AZ. Growing up, she spent much of her spare time watching her dad practice dentistry. She completed both her pre-doctoral and doctoral studies at Creighton University in Omaha, NE. While there, she earned a B.A. in psychology with a minor in business administration, followed by her Doctor of Dental Surgery. Dr. Salvatore enjoys all aspects of dentistry and strives to give every patient the best experience possible - and the healthiest smile possible. She is a member of the American Dental Association, Arizona State Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, and American Dental Society of Anesthesiology. While away from the office, Dr. Salvatore enjoys spending time with her husband, Christopher, and their beautiful daughter Claire. They also enjoy endlessly spoiling their two dogs, Peach and Scotch.
Scott Simpson, DDS, earned his undergraduate and Doctor of Dental Surgery degrees from Creighton University. He completed a mini residency in parenteral (IV) sedation at the Oregon Health and Sciences University School of Dentistry and achieved Mastership in the American Dental Society of Anesthesiology's College of Sedation. He also has a current permit (#13021412) from the State of Arizona allowing him to perform IV conscious sedation. He enjoys helping people improve their dental health and appearance and is confident that with modern medications and careful technique, dentistry can be provided in a comfortable and stress-free manner. Dr. Simpson is very proud to have his daughter as his partner and strongly feels she has brought renewed life and energy to him and the practice. He and his wife Megan have four children and four grandchildren and have resided in Phoenix for over 30 years. In his spare time, he enjoys reading, exercising, and spending time with his children, their spouses, and of course his four grandchildren.
Joseph Santoro, DDS, a graduate of Colorado School of Dentistry, completed an internship in oral and maxillofacial surgery and a fellowship in oral implantology at the University of Miami Jackson Memorial Hospital. His training there included implant placement, bone grafting, sinus elevation, and soft tissue techniques as well as all types of implant-based restorations. Furthermore, Dr. Santoro studied sedation and anesthesia at St. Joseph’s Medical Center in Patterson, New Jersey. As one of just a handful of fellowship-trained implant surgeons in the country, Dr. Santoro has dedicated his career to the pursuit of excellence in implant surgery and bone regeneration. He is a regional and national designated lecturer for MIS Implants. He holds professional memberships in the American Dental Society of Anesthesiology and the Academy of Osseointegration and is an active volunteer at the CASS dental clinic.
