General Information

Meet Dr. John

Dr. Anthony John received his Bachelor of Science with a major in Zoology and a minor in Chemistry from Weber State University in Ogden, Utah.  He then attended Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine in Cleveland, Ohio, graduating with the top clinical rank in his class in 2002 and was also awarded the HPSP Navy scholarship.  After completing dental school he was selected to complete an additional year of advanced education (AEGD residency) in general dentistry at the Navy's largest dental clinic located in Norfolk, Virginia.  

Dr. John then proudly served as division officer onboard CVN-75 USS Harry S. Truman in the Persian Gulf on deployment in the Global War on Terrorism.  After his tour was complete, he was selected for an advanced specialty residency in endodontics at the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland.  He concurrently earned a Master of Science in Oral Biology from the George Washington University in Washington, D.C.  After his specialty training was complete, he was given the privilege to serve with the Marines at Camp Pendleton and Miramar Marine Corps Air Station.

During his tour in San Diego, Dr. John and his family fell in love with the warm weather and endless activities in the area.  He decided to stay in San Diego and establish Pinnacle Endodontics.  In his spare time, Dr. John enjoys spending time outdoors with his wife Jamie and their three children, Avery, Hunter and Colton.
