Dr. Gary Nishimura

Gary Nishimura - Founder Gary Nishimura is from Morgan Hill, California. That is a hop, skip, and a jump from Gilroy. He was born and raised in Morgan Hill and worked with his family as a farmer while growing up. He graduated from Live Oak High School and married his high school sweetheart. He decided to become a dentist because he spent many long hours working in the fields and dreamed about what he would do when it was time for him to earn a living. He liked dentistry because he likes working with his hands. He loved putting models together as a kid and spent some time in a dental office during the summers waiting for his sister who worked as a dental assistant. He loves lots of things about dentistry. Mostly, it is a joy to help people look better and feel better about their oral health. He has mentored many of his staff and gave them hands-on training. Many of them have moved on to higher and higher echelons in the dental field.
