Dr. Hochstetler grew up in Horton, Kansas, and graduated from Union College (Lincoln, Nebraska) in 1980 with a double major in Chemistry and Mathematics (all very useful in day to day dental practice — not!). He then became “doctor” after graduating from Creighton School of Dentistry (Omaha, Nebraska) in 1984.
The first stop after graduation was in Lakewood, Colorado, where he lived and practiced dentistry for four years. There, after roaming the mountains, he met his lovely wife, LeAnna. They decided that Kansas was a better place to raise a family, so they moved back to Horton in 1988, where Dr. started his practice. They have two children who are currently in college.
Dr. Hochstetler is accomplished in virtually all phases of dentistry. He particularly enjoys the holistic or biological aspect since that can be the most challenging in determining how a person’s mouth and over all health are related and what can be done to reconcile the problems.
