Dr. Dennis' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Dennis "I was born in Columbus, OH. My father was an Air Force pilot, so I lived in a lot of different places including Boston, Orlando and Fort Walton Beach, FL, and Okinawa, Japan. I attended Highland High School in Albuquerque but graduated from high school in Madison, WI. I moved back to Albuquerque after dental school, and have loved life here for over 34 years. I have been married to Kim Dennis for 38 years. She is from Middleton, WI and was a fifth grade teacher in Albuquerque Public Schools. She is now helping me in our office. We have one son, Brad, who earned a degree in Psychology and Sociology. We have a love for animals and have had all kinds of pets including dogs and cats. We have a new addition, Aspen a chocolate lab. You can find her in the office. My family and I enjoy traveling all over the United States but one of our favorite places is Durango, CO, where we have a condominium. We like to snow ski, golf, bicycle, kayak, hike, and go motorcycling, and Durango is the perfect place to enjoy those activities. Giving back to the community creates a positive impact on the community and improves and enriches everyone's lives. There are several programs about which I am passionate. Give Back a Smile Program is the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry's charitable foundation whose mission is to assist in rebuilding the lives and dignity of survivors of domestic violence through compassionate cosmetic dental services and support programs. It provides restorative and cosmetic dentistry at no cost to qualified survivors of domestic violence. I served on the Board of Trustees for Give Back a Smile and I have been privileged to provide dental services for several survivors under the program here in Albuquerque. I also support the Open Wide Foundation, which is dedicated to making a significant, measurable, and lasting change in the state of oral health in impoverished communities worldwide. Our practice has also been involved with the American Dental Association's Give Kids a Smile and Mission of Mercy dental programs. I have been on the Board of Directors for Albuquerque's Healthcare for the Homeless and have provided dental services through their clinic as well. I was also a founding member for the Albuquerque Chapter of the Active 20-30, a national service organization dedicated to improving the lives of children in our community. Learning is a life-long mission; it makes me a better dentist and a better person. It is most exciting to learn about the new discoveries and technology that makes dental treatment easier, faster, more comfortable, and predictable. There are things we are doing today that were impossible to do when I was in dental school. I take hundred hours of continuing education every year and am involved in dental education in many different forms. I attend lectures, participate in hands-on-workshops, digital learning, and travel to national and international dental meetings. I have been a Director for the Seattle Study Club and I am currently a Co-Director of a Spear Study Club. As Visiting Faculty for Spear Education in Scottsdale, AZ, I help teach and mentor dentists in courses such as facially-generated treatment planning, occlusion, and other forms of dental treatment. I have served on the Board of Directors for the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. As an Accredited Member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, I also help member dentists achieve their goal of becoming accredited. I have been a Past-President of Albuquerque District Dental Society and Chairman for the New Mexico Dental Association's Annual Session from 2015 to 2017."
