Dr. David H. Kirkhoff was born and raised in Cambridge, MN. With both a father and great-grandfather who were dentists, the choice to pursue the dental profession was a natural one. He attended St. Olaf College and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Biology in 2015. He then earned his Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry in 2019.
Dr. Kirkhoff believes in the importance of lifelong learning and practicing evidence based dentistry. During his undergraduate and graduate training, he engaged in research under the direction of renowned dental researchers at Marshfield Clinic Research Institute and HealthPartners Institute. Continuing education continues to be a driving force in Dr. Kirkhoff’s career through local study clubs and nationally based programs. His professional memberships include the American Dental Association, Minnesota Dental Association, Southern District Dental Society and the Academy of General Dentistry.
Volunteerism and community service both locally and internationally are important to Dr. Kirkhoff. He has traveled to Guatemala and Honduras on dental mission trips and volunteered his services at Minnesota Mission of Mercy. In his spare time Dr. Kirkhoff enjoys cycling, alpine skiing, kayaking, hiking, fishing and golf. He also cherishes time spent at the family cabin in north-central Minnesota.
