"Giving our patients the same care and attention we would like to receive is our ultimate goal. It's especially fun working with our young patients, and those patients who are young at heart - they are so energetic and motivated; they put a smile on my face."

Dr. Henry Hoffman


Dr. Henry grew up in the Kansas City area before attending Creighton University for college, where he graduated with a degree in history. Henry then earned his DDS at UMKC's School of Dentistry before completing a two-year residency in orthodontics at the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston, where he earned a Certificate in Orthodontics and conducted research that culminated in a Master's degree. Henry now lives in Waldo with his wife, Ashley, and their puppy, Oscar.

In his free time, Henry enjoys cycling, cooking, reading, and traveling the world.

"For me, my work as an orthodontist isn't ultimately about teeth, it's about people. One of my mentors in residency used to say, 'if all you give your patients is straight teeth, you've let them down.' And I believe that. Getting to know my patients as individuals is what I love about my job, and tailoring their care to meet their individual needs is always my goal."
