Dr. Chaney graduated from Dental School at the University of California, San Francisco, School of
Dentistry in 1977, receiving the Doctor of Dental Surgery degree.
For his undergraduate training, he attended the University of California at Riverside, and received his
bachelor's degree in Physics.
Dr. Chaney is strongly committed to education. He continues his dental education with regular
attendance at post-graduate courses, so that he may stay abreast of current developments in dentistry.
He is a member of the California Dental Association, and the American Dental Association.
If dentistry does not keep him busy enough, then he has plenty of other interests to keep him out of trouble as well.
He enjoys his family, with his wife Sharon, and his two boys Alex and Neil. The family enjoys hiking, camping, boating and
scouting together. Everyone enjoys making things, as you can see on the family's web site.
He is an Assistant Scoutmaster of Boy Scout troop 77, and loves to spend time with the scouts. With the scouts he enjoys
hiking, backpacking, canoeing, and many other activities.
He also plays music in a country band called The Desert Moon Band. He applies his artistic talents, assisted by some of the
skills he learned in dentistry, to some unusual creations. His interests in electronics, computers, metalworking and
woodworking are mostly self-taught. He likes making things so much, that when he first learned about what dentists do and
how much creating things with his hands was involved, he said "This looks like the profession for me!".
