Meet Dr. Savant
A native Nevadan, Dr. Savant was born in Reno and raised across the state in White Pine county. After completing his undergraduate studies at UNR, Dr. Savant attended dental school at the University of Colorado where he graduated with honors in 1996. He then completed a one-year residency in General Dentistry at the VA Medical Center in Denver. In 2001, he completed a four-year residency in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center.
Dr. Savant has been in private practice since 2001 in Reno and Elko, as well as Southwest Oklahoma. He acquired his current practice location in Sparks from the late Dr. William McCalla in April of 2012. “We have a community of great dentists in Northern Nevada and it is a pleasure to work with them in providing specialty care to their patients in the Reno-Sparks area and outlying communities."
Dr. Savant prides himself on providing quality patient care. He also finds the performing oral surgery procedures to be rewarding, "While procedures such as wisdom teeth removal and jaw surgery are essential, others such as dental implants, help people to function and look better, as well as giving them more confidence."
Dr. Savant's wife, Alyson, also grew up in Ely and they were married while both attending UNR. They have three beautiful children who are "a constant reminder about what is most important in life and the need to keep a good balance between work and family time." Outside of the office, Dr. Savant enjoys boating with his family, RC planes, fishing, and shooting, as well as serving in his church.
