Dr. Sampson graduated from Samford University with a degree in Biochemistry and then received his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree at UAB in 2008.
Upon graduation he received the American Academy of Craniofacial Pain Award for clinical excellence. He has since earned a fellowship in the area of Laser Dentistry from the World Clinical Laser Institute following extensive education and testing.
He is a member of the Academy of General Dentistry, American Dental Association, World Clinical Laser Institute, and Opt-In Dental Advantage. Dr. Sampson’s love for relationships, health, and artistry led him to dentistry where he is able to passionately pursue all three.
When he’s not lecturing to people about the importance of daily flossing, Dr. Sampson loves spending quality time with his wife, Lauren, daughter, Selah, son, William, and other daughter, Eve. He is also an avid fly-fisherman, hockey fan, and disc sports enthusiast.
