We wanted to take a moment and introduce you to the latest addition to the Dental Comfort Center team. His name is Dr. Cody Henriksen and he grew up in Arlington, South Dakota, where he graduated in 2002. He then attended Augustana College and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in biology and philosophy in 2007. While in college, he was a 3-time All American in wrestling. He also received an NCAA Postgraduate scholarship and was selected as a member of the ESPN Academic All-America Team. In the summers, he worked with Augustana faculty members conducting research and was involved with a project that was later published.
From there, Dr. Henriksen attended the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry. During his years at dental school, he volunteered at Gospel Union Mission providing dental care to the underserved and was active in Give Kids a Smile day. He is a member of the American Dental Association, South Dakota and Minnesota Dental Association, and the Academy of General Dentistry. His favorite thing about practicing dentistry is getting to know his patients and providing care in a relaxed environment.
During his free time, he enjoys spending time with friends and family, hunting, fishing, golfing, and working out. He is active in the community and is happy to be back in the Sioux Falls area serving patients. He is the youngest of three brothers, and gives them credit for making him tough and wise. His oldest brother is Dr. Brent Henriksen, who practices oral surgery at River Ridge right in Sioux Falls. His other brother resides in their hometown of Arlington.
During your next visit to the Dental Comfort Center, make sure to stop by and say hello to Dr. Henriksen.
