Welcome back to the ongoing blog of Edgewood Dental Care. Today, we have exciting news! A new dentist has joined our Edgewood, KY dental practice! We would like to use today’s post to help you get to know Dr. Cory Middendorf, DMD. Please contact our office for more information or if you would like to schedule an appointment.

Education And Training
When Dr. Cory Middendorf decided to become a dentist, he was determined to get a high-quality education that would help him serve his patients for many years to come. Before dental school, he received his Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Louisville. He then went on to receive his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the University of Louisville School of Dentistry. But his education does not stop there. He also completed a one year General Practice Residency at the University of Kentucky Albert B. Chandler Hospital to enhance his training.

Since becoming a dentist, he has also gone through various continuing education courses and certifications. He has advanced training in endodontic techniques, dental implant procedures, moderate sedation, and dental emergencies. He is also certified in basic and advanced life support as well as moderate intravenous conscious sedation. Whether you need a simple filling, root canal therapy, dental sedation, or another restorative procedure, Dr. Middendorf can help you. This additional training was undertaken in order to help him best treat patients in a variety of situations.

Why He Became A Dentist
But why did Dr. Middendorf become a dentist? Well, you could say that it is in his blood. He comes from a family of healthcare providers of all types — physicians, nurses, physical therapists, and yes, even a dentist. He has grown around people who have devoted their lives to improving the lives of others … he grew up desiring the same kind of service-oriented career.

Dr. Middendorf’s family instilled in him a drive to care for patients as though they are a part of his own family. He has learned to utilize his skills as a dentist to help people achieve their oral health goals and to feel better about their smiles. He loves that every day is a new day to help a patient be healthy and feel great about the way they look.

Why He Enjoys His Job
Dr. Middendorf loves helping patients create positive changes in their smiles in order to improve their dental health. For example, he enjoys providing preventive care and restorative procedures, eliminating pain, and improving smile aesthetics. He loves helping patients get new crowns, fillings, or even cosmetic work. Like many in the dental health care industry, he loves being able to impact his patients’ lives in a positive way. There is no joy or satisfaction quite like watching a patient’s life change for the better due to the dental work you were able to provide.

Dr. Middendorf’s ideal patient is one who would see him on a regular basis for preventive care, want to be involved in the treatment planning process, and is motivated to really improve and take care of their smile.
