Practicing comprehensive dentistry means I strive to provide everything within my scope of expertise, to practice well above the standard of care, and most of all, to do my very best to provide comfort and understanding. In doing so, over the years, we have developed a family-friendly atmosphere. Our team has been together for over a decade and we regard each other as family. We may have one or two new faces occasionally, but we have seen our children grow up together and witnessed our young patients going off to college, or setting out on careers of their own.

Born and raised in California, Dr.Guerin grew up in the San Francisco Bay Areas eastern Tri-Valley. He attended Las Positas College, followed by UC Davis and UCSF School of Dentistry. Before attending dental school, Dr.Guerin conducted research for 5 years at the UC Davis Nutrition Department, collaborating on obesity, aging, and diabetes studies. Dr.Guerin has a diverse background, which is reflected in the assortment of jobs that he has held over the years. This includes various construction jobs, working the salmon fisheries in Alaska, landscaping, animal technician, automotive repair shop owner, dentist, clinical professor, dental administrator, and now a small business owner.

Dr. Guerin has lived in Redding for two decades, first serving as the Associate Dental Director for Shasta Community Health Center and more recently, the owner of Redding Dental Group. During his 6 year tenure at SCHC, Dr.Guerin was instrumental in the development of their marquee dental programs and extending the scope of services offered at the health center. Such programs include hospital-based dentistry for pediatrics and special needs, pediatric oral conscious sedation, mobile dentistry, and Give Kids a Smile, to name a few.

Early in his career, Dr. Guerin dedicated three years serving on the board of directors of the Northern California Dental Society. He was recently calledback to office within the Society, and is now serving another three years on the executive board. Having just finished his role as secretary/treasurer, he is the incoming president for 2021. He is also the past president of the Western Clinicians Network (WCN), an organization that promotes best practice models for health centers, peer to peer networking within the five westernmoststates (region IX of HHS), and offers ample continuing education for providers. Having not only rotated through the executive board within the WCN, Dr. Guerin personally crafted and led many continuing education courses for hundreds of non-profit dental providers. His leadership has had a profound effect on both local and regional platforms. 'Gratitude through action' is a personal tenet of Dr. Guerin, and he will continue to give back to the community and the profession throughout his career.

When not in the office caring for his patients, he enjoys recreating with his son, Rylan, at any one of the area's natural amenities. Among them would be skiing, mountain biking, motocross riding, or simply walking one of the many local trails.
