Dugoni University of the Pacific School of Dentistry in 1988.

He has lectured nationally and written several articles on bone grafting, implant dentistry, digital imaging, and cone beam imaging. He most recently had an appointment as Group Practice Director at the UCLA School of Dentistry.

He comes from a family of dentists as his dad, brother, and sister are all graduates of Dugoni/UOP. He is married and has four beautiful soccer playing daughters. Dr. Turchi received his BA degree from UCLA in History and still enjoys it to this day.
