Dean F. Telthorst, DDS, FAGD has been in practice for over 30 years and armed with training from the prestigious Pankey Institute for Advanced Dental Studies, Dr Telthorst strongly believes in taking the time to understand his patients desires and individual situations. “A dental exam starts with conversation, not with teeth,” he says. “It’s important that I have some understanding of the person that is before me. Only then can I recommend practical and appropriate dental treatment.”

Dr. Telthorst is meticulous and thorough in his work, which includes porcelain crowns, veneers, bonded white fillings, oral surgery, and the treatment of periodontal disease. “Patients hear these dental terms,” he observes, “but frequently don’t understand what it means for them today and the implications for their future.” Dr. Telthorst believes that part of his job is to educate patients about their dental treatment so they can make informed choices.
