About the Author

Dr. Rich Masek achieved his degree in Dentistry in 1976 from the University of Southern California. He recognized that his dental career was important because he knew that God had directed his path as he only applied to one dental school when there were 3000 applicants for 120 student positions. Rich married Sheri, his beautiful wife of 40 years in 1975 and inherited a ready-made family of 3 girls whom he later adopted. Realizing his responsibility as the spiritual head of his family, he began to pursue deeper knowledge of God’s Word. His gift of teaching began through home Bible studies which he taught for 20+ years. Further developing the gift for teaching that God had entrusted with him, Rich became an international lecturer and author on esthetic and computerized dentistry, devoting a significant part of his professional career to teaching and the advancement of high technology in dentistry. It was during this time, while also teaching and developing Bible studies that God gave him the inspiration to write this book.  Rich joined the classes of an extension campus of Life Christian University at their church and over a 3 year period, Dr. Rich Masek achieved his Master’s Degree in Theology! Balancing the time for all of the demands of caring for patients, family, professional teaching and university studies made it a bit challenging to pursue the calling of this book, but “by little and by little” it finally got done, as in Exodus 23:29-30. IDEOLATRY was accepted as his Doctoral Dissertation which he is working to complete. Rich continues to practice dentistry in San Diego CA. He likes to spend time with Sheri, their two Yorkies, 3 daughters, 5 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren when he is not being Dr. Masek providing patient care or busy writing a book.
