His involvement in the annual Crest Community Outreach Project (which gives free dental care and education to youth in the DC Metropolitan area) contributed to his decision to specialize in pediatrics.

Dr. Camper has also been a mentor for students who’ve shown an interest in dentistry. He continuously allows numerous students to “shadow” him during the course of the day. His humanitarian efforts led him to embark on a missionary trip to the Republic of the Philippines in the fall of 2010. It was there that he offered free dental treatment to approximately 450 children and adults.

Dr. Camper is happily married. His wife, Autumn, is an elementary school teacher. They have one son, Aidan. In addition to his professional and community interests, Dr. Camper loves to laugh, read, travel and exercise. He’s an avid sports fan who follows Georgetown basketball and NFL football.
