During his time at UCSD, he played on the Triton baseball team.

His life outside of dentistry is focused on his four boys, Cooper, Colby, Riley, and Jax. He enjoys sharing his love of sports with the boys. Baseball, basketball, and football take up much of their time, but they also love to get away to the river and the snow and carve it up when they can.

I was very impressed with the friendly professional service. From the receptionist to the dental tech to the financial consultant. Dr Sutherland was so kind and positive he really made me feel safe and comfortable. I drove 1 1/2 hours to get there it was well worth it. I highly recommend Digital Smiles!

My mission is to provide my patients with gentle, caring, and comprehensive lifetime dental care. I believe in conservative and preventative dentistry and my goal is to increase the longevity of my patient’s teeth. What I love most about dentistry is that it combines my two passions of helping others and art. It also enables me to make a difference in patient’s lives, whether it’s getting someone out of pain or giving them a whole new smile and seeing how it transforms their personality and life.
– Dr. Ho
