About Dr. Howarth

I grew up in Basking Ridge, New Jersey as the youngest of three children.  As part of a family with both a military and medical background, I learned at an early age about selfless service, sacrifice, and humility.  I benefitted from an early exposure to a variety of medical fields thanks to my family members. Despite that, I chose to follow in my father’s footsteps and pursued a career in Dentistry.

After graduating from the University of Michigan and Rutgers School of Dental Medicine, I commissioned in the United States Navy.  The Navy provided me a unique way to begin my dental career.  I was able to fulfill my dream of serving my country, while also honing my skills as a dentist.   During my six years of active-duty service, I had the opportunity to practice dentistry in South Carolina, Japan, Korea, and California. While working at the Naval Hospital in Yokosuka, Japan, I developed an interest in orthodontics, particularly the problem-solving aspect of the specialty.  I was attracted to the creative challenge of addressing the patient’s need by working backwards, with the end goal in mind. 

After leaving active duty, I followed those interests to San Francisco, where I completed my orthodontic training at the University of the Pacific, Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry.  Now, as a part of the orthodontic community, I feel fortunate to be able to positively impact people’s lives and smiles, either by laying a solid foundation for a child’s development and health or by providing comprehensive treatment later in teens and adults.

Outside of orthodontics I enjoy spending time with friends and family as well as traveling.  I also love both watching and playing sports.  I grew up playing football, basketball, baseball, and golf as well as skiing.  I am an avid Michigan fan and never shy away from an opportunity to say, “Go Blue!”

I am excited to be back in San Diego and be a part of the Stormberg Orthodontics Team!
