About the Author:

Brian McKay, DDS, is a graduate of the University of Southern California School of Dentistry. He had one of the largest and most successful dental practices in the Northwest. Upon the sale of that office, Dr. McKay set his sights on perfecting a new concept in dentistry - a personalized, boutique cosmetic dental practice. It was there that he encountered the world of Eating Disorder victims. He developed his unique non-judgmental approach to treating these patients after consulting with ED specialists and treatment practitioners in both the Northwest and Southern California. Dr. McKay has also achieved distinction as a Founding Faculty member, lecturer and Faculty Leader of the Pacific Aesthetic Continuum, the pre-eminent post-graduate school for cosmetic dentistry based at the University of the Pacific Dental School in San Francisco.
