“Your smile is your logo. It tells people who you are. The first thing I look at when I meet a person is their smile. The greatest joy I get from dentistry is helping my patients get the smile that they have always wanted.”
An unfortunate accident of breaking a front tooth at an early age lent itself to Dr. Kenton Gleichman becoming fascinated with the dental profession. Today he celebrates over 34 years of practicing his profession at Dental Associates, PC.
‘What gives me the most pleasure in dentistry is helping patients feel better by improving their smiles. With the help of our great staff and our excellent in-house lab technician, we have the opportunity to make wonderful things happen”
Practicing family dentistry is just a small part of the dental services provided by Dr. Gleichman. Specializing in cosmetic and smile enhancement, implant restorations and soft tissue laser use for frenectomies or gingival overgrowth / contouring are just a few of the oral health services offered to his patients.
Dr. Gleichman is a very active community leader. He has been a member of the Contributors Breakfast Club that has raised and donated over a 500,000 to children’s charities in the Des Moines Area. Traveling on a mission trip to Mexico was a humanitarian mission that he lists as one of his most memorable experiences.
Involvement in the G.V. Black Dental Study Club includes participating in community dental education. Additional memberships in the American Dental Association, the Iowa Dental Association and the Des Moines District Dental Society provide networking and sharing of best practices along with his dental professional peers.
His partner and wife Cathy have been married 38 years and are the proud parents of three daughters. They are members of Sacred Heart Catholic Church. Daughter Anna lives in the Twin Cities and works as a nurse in the NICU. Daughter Allison and her husband live in West Des Moines and his daughter Christina will be relocating with her family to Des Moines to join the Dental Associates, PC practice.
Traveling, snow skiing, playing golf and just having a great time with his family and friends are just few of the activities you will find Dr. Gleichman enjoying outside of his dental practice.
