Meet Dr. Kris Kuchenmeister

Kris Kuchenmeister, M.B.A., D.D.S., became interested in dentistry in Junior High School after having "the coolest dentist." He thought, "If my dentist is that awesome, then I want to be a dentist too." In High School, Dr. Kuchenmeister decided to learn more and "shadowed" a dentist for school credit. His initial desire became solidified and he knew he wanted to be a dentist.

Meeting new patients and providing solutions to their problems is what Dr. Kuchenmeister loves about being a dentist.

"The ultimate reward is having a patient say they love their new smile or that they are no longer embarrassed or in pain."

Dr. Kuchenmeister and his wonderful wife, Ashley, met at Utah State University. He and his wife have 3 wonderful boys, which is a big help when it comes to working with children as a dentist.

Dr. Kuchenmeister graduated from the prestigious University of Southern California in Los Angeles where he was trained in cosmetic and restorative dentistry. Not only can he give you a Hollywood smile but Dr. Kuchenmeister is also certified in sedation dentistry which allows him to do many procedures, like placing implants, pain free.

Since Dr. Kuchenmeister is 6 feet 4 inches tall, he has always enjoyed playing basketball, with the highlight being when he and his High School team won the State Championship. Dr. Kuchenmeister grew up in a small town in Washington and came to love the outdoors. He enjoys camping, hiking, fly fishing, and most of all, spending time with his family.
