10 things you don’t know about Dr. Blue!

1-Dr. Blue loves the Beatles:
The band had four of the most gifted musicians in history. They could play any style of music they wished to play. They led the British Invasion and infinitely influenced music and society. The band is as popular today as they were in the 70s. Modern musicians use their methods and style in present day music. All four went on to have successful solo careers after the Beatles disbanded. Paul and Ringo continue to write impactful music to this day and sell out wherever they perform.

2-Dr. Blue loves to play guitar:
He started playing guitar 2 1/2 years ago and wishes he had started when he was a young kiddo! He escapes into his own world while playing and loves every second of it (although his playing is a bit rough at this point :)).  He recommends that everyone gets involved in music. He will make sure his kids start while they are young. Music is therapy as far as Dr. Blue is concerned.

3-Dr. Blue is dual trained:
He is also a prosthodontist, and practiced prosthodontics prior to pursuing orthodontic training. Prosthodontics is the dental specialty that deals with teeth replacement, occlusion (bite), and complex restorative treatments. His combination of skills allow him to maximize his patients' esthetics and function. 

4-Dr. Blue loves to go off-roading:
 His favorite place to do so is southwest Colorado around Ouray and Telluride.

5-Where was Dr. Blue born?
Dr. Blue was born in Alexandria, Louisiana and raised in Dallas, TX.

6-Dr. Blue would love to travel to Scotland:
 He would love to explore his ancestral roots in this region.

7-Dr. Blue loves movies:
A few of his favorites are Jaws, Pulp Fiction, Young Frankenstein, and Sideways. 

8-Dr. Blue loves to cook.
In fact, he almost went to culinary school instead of dental school. He is glad that he pursued orthodontics as a career and that cooking remained a hobby. As a professional chef, he would not have been able to enjoy his existing life balance due to extremely long and late hours demanded of chefs.

9-How many years of education does he have?
Dr. Blue has attended 15 years of schooling after high school, including a BBA in Marketing from U. of TX at Arlington, pre-dental sciences at U. of TX at Arlington, DDS from Baylor College of Dentistry, Master of Science and Prosthodontics certificate from Baylor College of Dentistry, and an Orthodontics Specialty certificate from The U. of Nevada.

10-Dr. Blue's favorite restaurant is:

Lots of them! Too many to name. He and his family can often be spotted at Postino, Joyride, Ocean Club (special occasions), and Cheesecake Factory.
