Dr. Heaton has received many accolades in the field of cosmetic dentistry:

Dr. Heaton was raised in Roosevelt, Utah.

Meet Dr. Gregg Woodward, DMD

Dr. Woodward was born and raised in Southern California. He attended Arizona State University where he graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in Architectural Engineering. He continued his education at Oregon Health Sciences University and graduated with high honors and received his Doctorate of Dental Medicine (DMD). He is also a published author. “Dental Anatomy: A Diagrammatic Approach” is used as the primary text in OHSU’s first year dental anatomy course.

Dr Woodward has been practicing in Arizona for over 20 years and is highly skilled in a wide range of dental treatments and procedures. After meeting Dr Heaton, Dr Woodward chose to merge his practice with Smiles of Chandler because of a shared belief in providing state of the art, relationship-based, comprehensive care that is tailored to fit to each individual patient.

Away from work, Dr Woodward is an avid fan of the outdoors and enjoys hiking, camping & hunting. He also enjoys working out at the gym and spending time with his family.

Meet Dr. Heath Snell

Dr Heath Snell is an Arizona licensed general dentist who provides Smiles of Chandler’s lV sedation services. He was trained at the University of Colorado School of Dentistry and the Audie L. Murphy Hospital in San Antonio, Texas.

It was there that he gained the needed training to perform more complex surgical procedures such as extraction of impacted wisdom teeth, the placement of dental implants, and a certification for lV sedation.

His skills help provide our sedation dentistry patients with the confidence and comfort that comes from being treated by a dentist with advanced sedation training.

Dr. Snell graduated Summa Cum Laude from Arizona State University before attending the University of Colorado and while at the U of C was nominated into the prestigious Omicron Kappa Upsilon dental honors society.

Alexander May, DMD

Dr. May was raised in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. After graduating from high school, Dr. May felt called to volunteer in Bogota, Colombia, where he lived for almost 2 years working in a church, helping feed the less fortunate. Following this time, he returned home and eventually graduated from the University of Southern Mississippi with a major in Biological Sciences. He continued his studies at the University of Mississippi Medical Center School of Dentistry from 2012 through 2016. Dr. May graduated from UMMC (“Ole Miss”) where he was routinely recognized for his artistic flare and impressive hand skills.

Since graduating, Dr. May’s gentle & welcoming personality combined with his unyielding dental precision make him a favorite among many patients. In 2021, Dr. May took his skills to the next level when he completed the Biomimetic Mastership program from the Alleman Center for Biomimetic Dentistry – a year long intensive program focusing on minimally invasive, 21st century dental procedures with an emphasis on mimicking nature, reducing pain, and preventing root canals and tooth loss. He continues to actively engage in continuing education to ensure his patients are getting the best treatment available.

Dr. May met his wife, Tiffany, at church while both were playing on the worship team. Alex is a musician, proficient in multiple instruments. Alex and Tiffany are the proud parents of 2 amazing kids, Ezra and Karis, along with several comical pets. When he isn’t doing dentistry or playing music, Dr. May enjoys spending time with family and friends, playing and watching sports and video games, and reading.
