Having the desire to learn even more and master the artistry of full mouth reconstruction and dental implants, Dr Rua-Perez then completed a full-time 3-year residency in Advanced Prosthodontics at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center, an specialty accredited by the American Dental Association. Simultaneously he earned his Master of Science in Dentistry Degree involved in research pertaining dental biomaterials.

He served as Chief Resident his final year and taught part-time at the dental school clinic, supervising removable denture and crown procedures.

Dr. Rua-Perez first became interested in dentistry when he was young after spending a lot of time around dentists. He knocked some of his front teeth out on an accident when he was 10 years old. Soon after years of treatment with the best dental specialists he recovered the smile again. This experience set a glowing fire in David to make dentistry as his career goal. Dr Rua-Perez states that his goal is to create a space where people can be treated with dignity and kindness, but at the same time provide a high-quality dental care. He sees and treats patients as if there were family, building life-long relationships with them. Dr Rua-Perez looks forward to helping the people of the southwest region in any way he can with their complex dental needs.
