Dr. Medina earned a MS in Biostatistics in 1981 from Loma Linda University School of Public Health, California, and a MS in Computer Science from Cal Poly Pomona in 1985.
While working in the Dental Research Department for Periodontal Disease, he liked the idea of serving people and continued his education at Loma Linda University Dental School, graduating with his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree in 1994.
Dr. Medina began serving in the midcoast area, purchasing his Camden practice in 1995. Bi-annual dental mission trips to Mexico with his family has been a way to serve abroad. He also donates time working with local programs servicing local people in need.
He enjoys spending most of his spare time with his family and he relishes all things computers. He enjoys bicycling, and is always looking for events to participate in.
Although the desert areas of Southwest New Mexico where I’m from has a certain beauty, not many places can compare to the Coast of Maine. The many ‘fingers’ on the Coast give us many gorgeous water views, lighthouses, picturesque coves where you often see artists with their easels capturing lobster boats, a rocky coast, Fall leaves.
I will admit the winters were a bit harsh when we first moved to Maine, we quickly learned to enjoy our evenings by the fireplace.
Sometimes I like to pretend I’m a tourist again, as if seeing all this for the first time. Come with me on a photo tour of “Seasons in Maine”
