Dr. Hendriks can be described in one word: Passionate
. This passion for changing lives has lead Dr. Hendriks to surgically place and restore thousands of implants throughout his career
. His personal mission is: “To create life changing dream smiles.” This passion has driven him to limit his practice to implant dentistry
, which has the most powerful effect on the life of his patients. Unlike most general dentists, Dr. Hendriks doesn’t do routine procedures like regular fillings or crowns. But rather, he focuses on his passion which lies in changing lives through
full mouth reconstruction with All on 4® Dental Implants. He travels all over the world, training with the greatest minds in dentistry and medicine, to provide the highest level of care.
After graduating High School, Dr. Hendriks spent 2 years in Europe as a Christian Missionary for the LDS church. He regards these 2 years as priceless. Upon his return from his Missionary Service, he began his undergraduate work and accepted a full ride scholarship to the University of Utah. Under the advice of many professionals and dentists, he chose to pursue a business degree while completing extensive courses in sciences to qualify for entrance into Dental School. Upon graduation with his BA in business and waiting to begin Dental school, he also completed his training to become a nationally certified EMT.
As a dental student at Ohio State, Dr. Hendriks completed two degrees simultaneously. He received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery, as well as his Master in Business Administration (MBA)- all while starting a family of four children. He credits this feat of completing two professional degrees and raising a family to his wonderful and supportive wife Becky.
