Gabe Adorjan, D.M.D. - Dentist

 Gabe AdorjanD.M.D.

Dr. Gabe Adorjan was born in Hungary and arrived as an immigrant to the United States with his brother and parents at the age of twelve. He had an early natural affinity for computers and anything mechanical. In his early years, he worked with his father, a general contractor, building residential homes in the Valley. He has an aptitude for creative problem solving and became highly skilled at working with his hands.

Dr. Adorjan received a business degree from CSUN in 2001. After working in the real estate and mortgage industry for a few years and developing a customer service-centric business, he decided to follow his heart and his talents and attended UNLV dental school. He chose UNLV for their cutting-edge new technology-oriented dental school and program.

It was at UNLV that he was finally able to excel in his true talents and combine and hone his skillset of exceptional manual dexterity, computers, technology, and fantastic customer service in the ever-evolving world of modern dentistry.

You can find Dr. Gabe fixing computers, building things, doing construction, hiking, running with his dogs, and spending time with his wife, Tasha, and his baby, Madelyn. He has very happily relocated back to the Valley, where he works hard to help improve the dental health of his neighbors.
