Meet Our Team
My name is Dr. Brian Adams and I am excited to meet each of you and continuing to provide exceptional dental care to you, your friends, and family. After many conversations with Dr. Schade, I know of the love and respect he has for each of you and how much he will miss interacting with you all daily. I know that you have experienced a lot of change over the past two years but Dr. Schade and I want to make this transition as seamless as possible.
I grew up in northern Arizona and upon graduating high school, attended ASU. Although I am Sun Devil, please don’t hold that against me! There is always room for growth. While attending ASU, I met my incredible wife and we were married. We are currently a family of 5 with two daughters, Gwen and Paige, and a pup named Milo.
I attended dental school in Glendale Arizona at Midwestern University. After graduation, we decided that we would try a new adventure so we moved to Reno, Nevada. While we have had a great time over the years in Reno, we have decided that it is time to move back closer to family.
I am a member of the American Dental Association and pride myself in providing my patients the best care possible. I have continued to learn through continuing education courses and plan on doing so throughout the rest of my career. I am excited to meet each of you and take and care of all your dental needs at Foothills Family Dentistry.
