Dr. Tyler Buchanan
Dr. Tyler Buchanan loves to finally be practicing alongside the Reflections Dental Centre team. He was raised in the greater Seattle area, and grew up observing how his father, Dr. G. Glenn Buchanan, provided care to patients with great joy.
Dr. Tyler pursued his undergraduate degree at Rice University in Houston, TX, where he studied psychology and biochemistry. It was there he discovered how dentistry is a career that offers a perfect blend of the sciences with unmatched opportunities for creativity in a patient-focused setting. This is where he decided to definitively pursue a career as a dentist. After graduation, he moved to San Francisco, CA where he earned his Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University of the Pacific, Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry. Inspired by some of his dental school professors, he elected to complete a General Practice Residency back in Houston at the University of Texas Health Science Center. Several months into his program, he was asked to stay for a second year and lead as the program’s Chief Resident. In his two years of residency, he expanded the scope of his practice to include many oral surgery and advanced restorative dentistry procedures. He also focused on providing emergency dental care in the emergency department and treating patients with special needs at Memorial Hermann Hospital and MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston.
The Pacific Northwest is home for Dr. Tyler, and here he strives to continue learning with local dental societies. On his days off, you’ll likely find him skiing throughout the Cascades, or hiking with his two Australian Shepherds.
