During Dr. Fana’s senior year of high school, he got braces. Throughout his treatment, he formed a bond with his orthodontist and saw first-hand the positive impact dental care could have on others. Once he worked as a dental assistant, his mind was made up: he wanted to become a dentist too!
Dr. Fana first attended Florida State University. After earning his undergraduate degree, he obtained his dental doctorate at the University of Louisville. To further hone his skills and expand his knowledge, he completed a residency in general dentistry at the University Medical Center as well. In 2000, he opened Compass Dental, and he’s been living out his dream of helping others as a Highland Park dentist ever since!
Passionate about continuing education, Dr. Fana dedicates a lot of his time outside the office to advanced training. In fact, he has completed the entire curriculum at the world-renowned L.D. Pankey Institute! Plus, he is an active member of the American Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry, the Georgia Dental Association, and several other professional organizations.
Of course, Dr. Fana also enjoys using his free time to be with family. He also has numerous hobbies, including traveling. In fact, he hopes to take his family to all of the national parks sometime soon!
I would give 10 stars if I could. My wife and my son were seen at the office today. The professionalism and dedication to the welfare of the patients and their family members is exceptional. My wife has a language barrier and still they were patient and made communication an easy process. She had multiple ongoing issues with her oral health and every dentist around said that they could not see anything. Dr. Fana and his staff are true health professionals and were dedicated enough to find out the underlying issue. I would recommend the office to anybody that needs dental care.
