Meet Dr. Kirk Dahlke

Kirk Dahlke DMD, MS

I grew up in a small ranching town in California, where I learned the importance of hard work from an early age. I earned money for college by stringing barbed-wire fences, painting, renovating apartments and working for a small construction company. I married my sweetheart and moved to San Diego where I earned a bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry from UC San Diego. We then moved to Arizona and I graduated from the Arizona School of Dentistry and Oral Health.  From there, I joined the army where I practiced as a general dentist doing all aspects of dentistry and then practiced as an orthodontist for my last five years in the army. The army provided the opportunity to go to Oklahoma, Honduras, Germany, Afghanistan, Texas, and most recently to the sands of the California desert. We had great experiences and made life-long friends everywhere the army sent us. Now, we have settled down to join you all in the Pacific Northwest as we spend our remaining years raising our family in DuPont, and providing you with the best possible smiles.

Some people may ask why should I choose Dahlke Orthodontics for braces. Well, simply I am a hard working and honest guy who strives to do all my work with integrity. I do everything possible to stay current on the latest and greatest in orthodontics in order to get the best possible result for your smile and teeth. Even more importantly, we understand that there is a person attached to those teeth.  My family, my staff and I have experienced what many of you have. We understand what it is like to receive unexpected deployment, PCS, or TDY orders. We know what it is like to raise teenagers and to have teenagers in braces. We, like you, are involved in the community. We go to school, sports, community, and church functions. We have enjoyed coaching youth sports teams. We have also experienced those great life-enriching times of early marriage when we had no money and the car breaks down. We understand life. When you come to see us for your complimentary consultation, we will be able to honestly discuss with you what treatment will be best. Not only what treatment is best for your teeth but what treatment might be best for your life circumstances. If you are military, we understand the military healthcare and dental system and we can help you work with them. We approach each patient by first asking ourselves how we would like our own child, or sibling treated.  When you see us you will be treated like family.
