Growing up, my parents, both realtors, worked hard to flip homes for investment, and I pitched in with cleanup and light construction as a teen. Unfortunately, I injured my lower back at 14 while lifting and pulling up carpet, leading to severe pain, numbness, sciatica, and even bladder control issues.


After being told I might need surgery, my mom's friend suggested a chiropractor instead. Despite initial discomfort during the first two weeks of stretching and adjustments, the chiropractic treatments gradually relieved my symptoms and restored my normal, nearly pain-free life. This experience and how I managed my future flare-ups motivated me to become a chiropractor.

Following undergraduate studies at Arizona State University, I earned my chiropractic degree from the Los Angeles College of
Chiropractic in 1988.


With a desire to learn science and wellness, my focus has been on the biomechanical causes of pain and treating the underlying factors that cause and contribute to back and neck pain. In my practice, I emphasize addressing both muscular and bony conditions contributing to discomfort.

"Like car maintenance, I believe in fixing the underlying issue, not just covering the warning light."

Outside the office, I cherish time with family and friends, enjoy staying active at the gym or walking around Lake Hollingsworth, and have a passion for good food and outdoor activities.

             Dr. Dean's Mission Statement:     


 My desire is to improve the health and well-being of my community so that whoever I put my hands on can enjoy a more functional life as free from physical limitations, sickness, and debilitating pain as possible. I do this by educating each patient and working on their spine to improve its function, thereby improving their quality of life.”
