Dentist in Columbia, MO
Dr. Michael Ogden
Dentist in Columbia, MO | Ogden Dental
After growing up in Oklahoma, my family moved to Columbia in 1967, where I graduated from Hickman High School in 1969. I attended the University of Missouri from 1969-1972, after which I received my professional degree from UMKC School of Dentistry in 1976. Later that year, I established my private practice here. I have practiced in the present location since 1987.
I had decided to make dentistry my career at the age of 13, and worked my way through dental school as a dental laboratory technician. I have always regarded my dental school training as just the beginning of my education. Dentistry has remained a passion of mine all this time. Otherwise, my time is spent with my wife Lynn or with my friends at the golf course.
I have been invited to give talks to our local dental society, the Central District Society, and the Missouri Dental Association on the subjects of adhesive dentistry, TMJ disorders , and most recently, controlling and monitoring the quality of water in dental units which is used to cool high speed instruments, clean your teeth, and rinse your mouth.
I have dedicated my career to providing my patients with the finest care available anywhere, through continuing education and attention to the smallest details. Not a single patient in my practice receives a level of care less than I would provide for my own family or want for myself. As a patient, you are important to me.
It would be my pleasure to meet you and to serve your dental health needs.
