My Legal Journey Began in 1978, ​when I decided to start trying to pass regulation law in Washington that allows Denturists to practice as providers. In the previous year of '77 the state of Maine the state of Maine passed the first Denturist Regulation in the United States(Even though there was no provider until 2000 due to the Dental Board controlling Licensing). By this time Canada had been regulated from coast to coast. In 1978 the state of Oregon passed a Denturist Initiative by 75%. I was convinced it was time to "Make a break" so to speak and give it a shot in our home state. I thought it would take some time, but in reality it took me nearly ten years. After some failed attempts to get it to pass, we finally passed the regulation in 1987 from an Initiative by the people. What's better, we passed at 57%. During the many court battles, I worked under the protection of the courts .  As soon as I was legally able I was licensed and have been serving the needs of my patents ever since.

Fox's Spokane Denture Clinic ​opened in 1988, and has been a leading provider in denture care since then. My name is Gary Fox, I am the owner of the clinic and its primary Denturist.


I was born and have been raised in Washington State. My mother started work in a Dental lab in the early 1940's for A.B. Gill. On the weekends, my mother made dentures and partials for family and friends as well as in the lab during her work for Dr. Gill's. She was what you would call a "bushwacker" in those days. In 1963 at Gill's passing, she purchased the denture department from his widow. Thus her business was born. I followed in her steps and went to dental technician school in 1971. When I returned in '73 I came back to run the lab in Spokane myself.
