Dr. Hendrickson was born in Minneapolis Minnesota. He lived there for five years before his father, also a dentist, decided to go west. Stopping in Las Vegas for a quick visit with a college roommate, his dad decided Las Vegas was warm enough and beautiful enough to call home.
Dr. Gregg (as he is called in the office) spent many hours as a child with his dad at his dental office. “I often think being with my dad at his office cultivated my love of dentistry. I was always interested in what he was doing.”
When it came time for college, Dr. Gregg eventually made his was to San Francisco to the University of the Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry. Dr. Gregg was a natural at dentistry and quickly rose to the number three spot in his class. “During dental school, I was in my element. I loved it.”
Shortly after graduation, Dr. Gregg came home to Las Vegas to practice dentistry. His education wasn’t done yet. As a dentist, Dr. Gregg had a zest for learning and quickly pursued advanced training in Endodontics, Dental Implants, Sleep Apnea and TMJ Disorders. “I’ve never met a subject in dentistry I didn’t care for. I have always been fascinated by dentistry and solutions to dental problems. When I not working at the dental office, you’ll probably find me advancing my education at a course somewhere.”
Recognizing the need patients had for replacing missing teeth, Dr. Gregg sought out advanced education in dental implants. “I have had the opportunity to study dental implants with some of the most talented dental implant doctors in our country; individuals such as Dr. Carl Misch, Dr. Mike Pikos, and Dr. Maurice A. Salama. What I learned from them was invaluable and it has helped me become one of the best dental implant doctors in our area”. Beginning in 2016, I am a certified Hybridge dentist. (an exciting new process of delivering dental implants to patients. Thats another entire article!)
“For me being a dentist is much more than a job. I am on a mission to help as many people as possible to achieve the smile of their dreams. Having a beautiful smile that allows an individual to eat, laugh without worry and live again is the greatest gift I can give to a patient.”
