Dr. Ian Leopold has followed in family tradition, joining his father, Dr. Mark Leopold, and uncle, Dr. Nicholas Murphy, at our San Luis Obispo practice in the fall of 2010.
Ian grew up in San Luis Obispo and received his bachelor’s degree in biology from Cal Poly. While attending school, he worked in our dental lab preparing crowns and other restorations. He returned to the practice after graduating with honors from the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry in 2010.
In addition to general and family dentistry, Ian has a special interest in the dental surgical disciplines. He completed the fellowship program with the California Implant Institute, and continued his education in advanced surgical techniques. Dr. Leopold is also proud to be the sole Novadontics Smile provider in all of San Luis Obispo, Monterey, and Santa Barbara counties.
In his spare time he enjoys being at home with his wife Jackie, two daughters Sadie and Mia, hiking, cooking, fishing, and playing tennis.
Dr. Craig Main completed his undergraduate degree in Biology at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and his DDS at Loma Linda University School of Dentistry. He and his family returned to the Central Coast in 2003 to join the practice of Mark Leopold and Nicholas Murphy.
Dr. Main’s dedication to excellence in dentistry is evident by his commitment to continuing education. He has undergone extensive continuing education in the areas of orthodontics and endodontics to enable him to provide state-of-the-art care in both areas. He is also an associated member of the American Association of Endodontists. He is a certified Invisalign provider and has received extensive additional training on occlusion at UCLA.
Dr. Main also holds memberships in the California Dental Association and the American Dental Association. He has also participated in the Seattle Study Club, and has taken a two year comprehensive program in Orthodontics. Dr. Main values advanced technology and is very grateful that he has been given the opportunity to practice with three excellent clinicians in a state-of-the-art facility.
