David Campbell, DDS
Dr. Campbell owns Century Dental Centers, managing seven dental offices, throughout Southern California. He still practices wet fingered dentistry on a regular basis.
Dr. Campbell serves as Dental Director for the Los Angeles Christian Health Centers – Joshua House which provides health services to the homeless with the Los Angeles Mission. The dental clinic was started by the Korean American Christian Dental Mission. It’s a Federally Qualified Health Center that provides medical care, psychological counseling, and social services for a whole person approach to helping the homeless with their multi-factored struggles in a Medical Home Model.
As associate professor at the Dental School at Herman Ostow University of Southern California, he serves at the extramural dental clinic that USC uses in the Union Rescue Mission. In addition to helping the students with their rotations, USC recently expanded services to add another facility across the street at the John Wesley Health Center. Both are about a block from the LA Christian Health Center.
He is also a consulting Dental Director at World Impact Watt’s Dental Center and the Catholic Worker’s Hospitality Kitchen
As the third generation of my family to serve Southern California with dental care, our family has been extremely blessed with the honor of successfully serving grateful patients over the last 80 years. Because I grew up in such a successful family, my early years were blessed with all the comforts of life. I pursued happiness and success in the same manners as most young men. And in high school, I had some measure of success in life. I competed nationally in aquatics, was student body president, with good grades, and was honored with a college scholarship.
As I left my parent’s guidance and headed off for college, unfortunate choices began to inhibit my success. I was brought to my knees with the disappointment of mediocrity. I am grateful for those trials now, for God was using these to call me to a devout life serving Christ wholeheartedly. Though life continues to challenge me, I look to Christ’s own healing ministry and prayer to guide my steps. Since then, God has blessed me with more excellence than I could have ever obtained on my own, and I am grateful for the way the Lord uses this life’s mediocrity for his excellent glory.
