Dr. Buhler was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. He graduated from Westminster College with a degree in Biology. He moved to Richmond for dental school where he graduated from MCV/VCU School of Dentistry. Dr. Buhler is a member of the American Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry, and the Virginia Dental Association. He had the opportunity to participate in the Jamaica Project, a volunteer dental mission trip, in his final year of dental school. He has had the opportunity to work in three different offices within the practice and settled into the Atlee office in 2007 where he loves his staff and his patients.
Dr. Buhler believes good oral health is essential physically and emotionally. Good home oral hygiene and regular dental office visits are habits that are critical for anyone to obtain and maintain healthy teeth and gums. Whether your teeth are perfectly white and straight or have color and character, healthy gums and teeth improve everyone’s smile and attitude. Dr. Buhler spends time to educate his patients on the process of gum and tooth disease so the methods of prevention and restoration make sense and motivate them to improve hygiene habits, diet, and overall health. He comfortably treats all aspects of dentistry including anterior bonding, crowns, root canals, dental implants, and extractions. He knows that anxiety and fear of dentistry is a major hurdle for many patients to overcome in their pursuit for better oral health and esthetics. He uses nitrous oxide, as well as, oral and IV sedation medications to comfortably treat his more anxious patients.
During dental school he met his wife in gross anatomy class prior to her attending medical school. He and Catherine were married while they both were in school the following year. In 2006 their first son Jackson was born, and in early 2010 twin boys Sam and Alex joined their busy household. He spends his free time with his family, hiking, and playing golf. He also enjoys skiing, scuba diving, and traveling.
