Dr. Dixon was born in Redding, California and raised in the Seattle area. He went to Brigham Young University in Utah where he received a degree in biology. He attended dental school in Cleveland, Ohio at Case Western Reserve University, where he graduated with honors. He then went on to receive two years of specialty training in Pediatric Dentistry at the University of Florida where he was the Chief Resident his final year.
