John K. Sullivan, DDS
A lifetime resident of Tulare, Dr. Sullivan attended Tulare Western High School, College of the Sequoias and Fresno State University before graduating from University of the Pacific School of Dentistry in 1984. He returned to his hometown and created a practice to make a difference in his community and profession. He is proud to be recognized as both a teacher and a leader in Cosmetic Dentistry. As an international lecturer on the latest advances in cosmetic dentistry and practice enhancement, he has spoken to dental organizations throughout the United States, Canada and Asia.
Many weekends find him helping other dentists learn the nuances of what it takes to create a beautiful smile by presenting lectures nationwide on aesthetic dentistry. “It’s great to help other dentists see what cosmetic dentistry can truly be for their patients,” he says, “and it’s even greater to see the change cosmetic dentistry Tulare CA can make in patient’s lives. For me, a beautiful smile is about reflecting the person underneath. While a member since 1998, Dr. Sullivan’s passion for his profession has led him to an even higher level of service; for many years he has served as a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) Board of Directors, and was President of the AACD in 2011-12. “The AACD is an incredible organization that is changing the way cosmetic dentistry is practiced. I’m proud to be a member, and was privileged that the membership allowed me to help shape their future,” Dr. Sullivan said.
