Dr. States

Dr. States grew up in Chesapeake, Virginia. After graduating from Hampden-Sydney College with a degree in Chemistry in 1986, he earned his dental degree from Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry in 1990.

Upon graduation, Dr. States moved to Charlottesville and has been practicing dentistry ever since. Influenced by the mentorship of Dr. Stephen Clarke and Dr. James Farmer, Dr. States believes that everyone, regardless or socioeconomic class or life circumstances, deserves the opportunity to experience optimal oral health. His philosophy is that the doctor and patient are a team that together comes up with a plan of treatment that is appropriate.

Dr. States is a member of the American Dental Association, the Virginia Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry, the Virginia Academy of General Dentistry and the Academy of Osseointegration, as well as several local study clubs.

In 1992, Dr. States married the love of his life Sheri. When they are not working, they enjoy serving in their church, experiencing all the beauty that Central Virginia has to offer and when time permits, a little fishing.
