Dental Director

Dr. Michael Savidan

Dr. Michael Savidan grew up in Southern California, where he graduated cum laude from Loyola Marymount University (B.S. degree in Biology) and then with honors from the University of Southern California (USC) School of Dentistry in 2005 (DDS degree).

Following dental school, Dr. Savidan was commissioned as an officer in the U.S. Air Force and served four years of active duty as a Captain/dentist from 2005-2009.  During his first year of military service, Dr. Savidan completed an advanced education training program in all aspects of general dentistry (AEGD-1) while stationed at Nellis AFB, NV.

His final three years of military service were spent as a staff dentist at Vandenberg AFB, CA. Dr. Savidan was responsible for the dental services and oral health needs of the entire active-duty population on base. After an honorable discharge from the military in 2009, Dr. Savidan was named a local director of the Community Health Centers of the Central Coast Dental Dept. in Lompoc, where he worked from 2009-2019.  He is excited and grateful to join our SYTHC team, and hopes to provide outstanding dental services to all of our tribal members and local residents. 

Dr. Savidan and his wife Gretchen live in Solvang and have two children, Cole and Chloe. He stays active by golfing and playing on a men’s baseball team. The USC Trojans and LA Dodgers are his favorite sports teams.  He also loves vacationing and spending time at the beach with his family whenever he has an opportunity!
