Following his undergraduate studies, Dr. Buchman went to Rwanda where he spent a year as a missionary teacher for math, science, and P.E. During his time in Rwanda, Dr. Buchman also facilitated the distribution of hundreds of toothbrushes and toothpaste to two local communities and provided oral health education.

While completing dental school at LSU, Dr. Buchman became very involved in research as well as volunteer work. His research led to a number of accolades including being awarded the Student Clinical award and an invitation to speak at the International Association for Dental Research in 2013. Among other extensive volunteer work, Dr. Buchman served as Co-Chairman of an outreach program called “Making Impressions” which was a dental bus that provided screenings and education for the community. Dr. Buchman completed his Advanced Education in General Dentistry Residency at MUSC in Charleston, SC before moving back to Little Rock.
