Dr. Phillips graduated from Sahuaro High School in Tucson in 1988, and he went on to attend the University of Arizona, graduating with a B.S. in Microbiology in 1992. He then continued his education at Oregon Health Sciences University and received his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree in 1997. After graduating from dental school, he practiced general dentistry for five years in Tucson.
During this time, he discovered that there was an unmet need for in-office sedation services. He decided to further his education in anesthesia by attending The Ohio State University dental anesthesia program, where he eventually received his Masters’ degree in Dental Anesthesiology in 2004. He then returned to Tucson and began providing in-office anesthesia services for children, adults, and special needs patients. He eventually moved to the Columbus area in December 2012.
Dr. Phillips enjoys spending time with his wife, Tonya, and their four boys, Alec, Jacob, Brayden, and Gavin. In his spare time, he likes to play lacrosse, cycle, read, and play guitar in a praise and worship band at his church. He and his family currently reside in Westerville.
