Ultimately, we seek to empower our patients to become healthier human beings.
Dr. Biles practices dentistry in Santa Cruz, CA with a biological/holistic approach and is currently a member of the Academy of General Dentistry, the California Dental Association, the American Dental Association, the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, and the International Academy of Biology and Medicine, and holds fellowships in the Academy of General Dentistry and the Institute of Natural Dentistry.
Born and raised intermittently on the Presidio of San Francisco, he graduated Phi Beta Kappa in 1975 from UC Davis with degrees in psychology and physical education, while working for the UCD Law School, the campus police department, and most importantly, the Human Performance Laboratory, a government subsidized exercise physiology laboratory. Abandoning sports psychology as a career objective, Dr. Biles switched directions in graduate school and began pursuing a hard science path towards a Ph.D. in exercise physiology. He earned a Regents Fellowship for his research on cardiovascular drift, completing his studies with 55 units more than necessary to achieve his degree.
Taking a break from academia, he left Davis for Los Angeles and was hired in 1977 as Northridge Hospital’s first exercise physiologist/cardiopulmonary technologist, where he worked in the Pulmonary Department and the Intensive Care Unit before, during, and after graduation from dental school at UCLA. Ever busy, he completed his UCD masters’ thesis, The Effect of Ambient Temperature on Cardiovascular Drift During Prolonged Exercise, in December of 1981 six months prior to graduating from the UCLA School of Dentistry where he was recognized by the faculty for comprehensive care.
He has been interviewing leading healthcare authorities as a radio talk show host for KSCO 1080 AM, KSCO.com, since October 2003, and wrote a health column for The Connection Magazine for 15 years. Dr. Biles can be heard weekly Saturdays at noon on KSCO where he covers a myriad of topics from health to local, state, and national politics. His ability to speak with cutting edge scientists and clinicians has been helpful in Dr. Biles’ ability to integrate the working model and new paradigm. As always, his website, www.drbiles.com is under ongoing revision.
