I believe the profession of dentistry is my life’s calling. Having the opportunity to work with the team of highly trained and qualified dental professionals here at Dental Comfort Center provides me with the means to strive towards excellence in field of dental medicine. I am passionate about the opportunity to use the hands, knowledge, and gifts God has blessed me with to creatively serve others and promote health.
I am a South Dakota native, born and raised in Huron, SD. I graduated from James Valley Christian High School and am the oldest of nine children to Tom and Shannon Gross.
I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from South Dakota State University in 2014. I graduated with a Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) College of Dentistry in May of 2018. UNMC College of Dentistry has continued to be among the top dental schools in the United States both didactically and clinically. In 2018, my class reached an unprecedented level of excellence by being the first class in school history to complete the CRDTS patient board exam with a 100% pass rate.
I understand the importance of continuing education in an ever-progressing profession and look forward to learning and applying the proven advancements in the field. I have made a commitment to my patients to always provide them with the highest quality dental care.
I am a member of the American Dental Associate and Christian Dental Society. During academic breaks, I traveled three times to the country of Jamaica with the Christian Dental Society to provide free dental treatment for those in vital need at Helping Hand Dental Clinic.
I have a passion for offering patients state-of-the-art technology in their care. I have been trained in CEREC® in my time at Nebraska, offering patients the convenience of single-visit crowns. I have also been certified in Invisalign®, an advanced clear removable aligner system that provides an alternative to traditional orthodontic braces.
I am excited to be a part of the Sioux Falls community and look forward to being an active part of it. In my free time, I am interested physical fitness and enjoy spending time at the gym training and playing basketball. I also enjoy traveling, playing guitar, snow skiing, and working with computers.
