Following his graduation in 1987, Dr. Dexter completed a General Practice Residency at the VA Medical Center in Kansas City. He then continued his education by focusing on the specialty of Prosthodontics, completing his residency at the VA medical hospital.

Dr. Dexter completed his prosthodontic training with an oral and maxillofacial fellowship at M.D. Anderson Cancer Clinic in Houston, Texas. He continued expanding his training through numerous continuing education courses, building a solid foundation in the fundamentals of dentistry.

From 1991 to 1993, Dr. Dexter worked for the Canadian Health Organization, treating patients who had limited access to dental care.

Dr. Dexter’s education has provided him with extensive dental experience, which he applies every day to provide exceptional care to his patients.

Prosthodontists specialize in the esthetic restoration and replacement of damaged or missing teeth. The primary focus is to restore the health and proper function of the mouth and teeth, creating a healthy, long-term environment for the patient.
