MEET THE TEAM
Dr. Skinner was raised in North Little Rock. He attended college at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, where he earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. Following graduation he received his D.D.S. degree from the University of Tennessee College of Dentistry in Memphis. He eagerly returned to the place he calls home, North Little Rock, to practice dentistry and raise his family.
Dr. Skinner's practice philosophy is simple. He intends to provide his patients with the latest, most advanced general and cosmetic dentistry available today. As an added benefit to our more timid or time restricted patients, we offer oral conscious sedation. With this, we are able to provide dental treatment with substantially fewer appointments with very little or no memory of your dental visit.
In Dr. Skinner's spare time he enjoys Razorback Football and spending time on the lake with his wife, Laura and their three children, Emily, Luke and Sam.
