Dr. Sonny Porter
DDS, Board Certified Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon
Dr. Sonny Porter grew up in a small town in Idaho famous for potatoes and Philo T Farnsworth (the inventor of television). He later spent two years exploring the beautiful country of Spain where he became fluent in Spanish. After returning from Spain, he completed his undergraduate studies at Brigham Young University and met his beautiful wife, Emily.
Dr. Porter attended dental school at Loma Linda University in Southern California. During this time, he had the chance to participate in numerous dental outreach trips to Mexico and Ukraine. He worked in a small room that was converted to provide dental treatment in an orphanage just outside of Kyiv, Ukraine, and that is how he developed a passion for oral surgery. He witnessed firsthand how dentistry could impact the lives of others.
His Grandfather Porter served as a mechanic in the United States Army. While in dental school, he followed in his Grandpa Porter’s footsteps and joined the United States Army. Dr. Porter became a board-certified oral surgeon and spent the next nine years in the military in Washington State and Oklahoma providing oral surgery to members of the military and retirees. Following his time in the military, his family spent two years in Iowa and loved every moment of living in the Midwest.
In his spare time, Dr. Porter can spend time with his wife Emily, three children, a golden retriever named Jane and an albino ball python named Lemonhead. He enjoys coaching his daughter’s soccer and softball teams. He also loves exploring skyscrapers with his son Charlie and is currently using his YouTube mechanic skills to restore a 1968 Ford Mustang with his oldest son Taylor.

Our Patients Say
I have had several successful dental surgeries at this office. Everytime I go in everyone is welcoming and friendly..they treat you like a friend or family member! They always make sure you are comfortable and your needs are met during your procedure. I have complete trust with this practice and the people.
My dentist referred me here for a somewhat tricky upper extraction, which went exceptionally well. However, I soon realized that some of the nicest people on the planet provided much more than just superlative care in this office. Outstanding staff! Nancy, Sophia, Dr. Sonny, Nikki, et al, get my highest recommendation.
They were very nice and gentle and understood that I was scared to get me wisdom teeth out. They made it really easy for me to relax.
We had a great experience at Sonoma Oral & Facial Surgery! The staff is amazing and made us feel so welcome. My 11 year old was so scared to have her dental work done, but they made her experience so good that she wasn't scared anymore and was actually happy to get it all done. I highly recommend them to anyone in need of there services!!
