Dr. Adams is a graduate of the Indiana University School of Dentistry where he taught clinical dentistry for 5 years. In 1997, Dr. Adams was chosen out of thousands of dentists to become a Clinical Instructor at the prestigious Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI). After developing a highly successful esthetic restorative practice for 19 years, he moved to Las Vegas, Nevada in 2002 to become a full-time faculty member as the Clinical Director at LVI.
While there he taught clinical skills and also lectured to dentists from around the world on combining the fine art of esthetic dentistry and neuromuscular rehabilitation, while also maintaining a private practice. His love for private practice prompted him to come back to Indianapolis to focus entirely on patient care. He has published over 20 articles including co-authoring a chapter in the prestigious Dental Clinics of North America. His lecture schedule has taken him around the world teaching dentists the art of fusing form (esthetics) and function (Neuromuscular occlusion), its effect on the TMJ joint, the importance of airway and how to manage and treat these challenging cases. He is a Diplomate in sleep with the ACSDD. He has been voted Indianapolis Top Dentist 8 years in a row.
Dr. Adams’ success has been directly attributed to the support he has been so graciously given by his family. He has been married to Pam for over 34 years. They have three children, Chris, Emily and Nick.
