Transforming Lives by Changing Smiles
As a dentist, I have the unique opportunity to truly transform a person’s life. When we work together to change and improve their smile, their self-esteem increases, they’re happier, and they’re healthier, too. Dentistry goes far beyond caring for teeth; it’s about helping people develop better oral and overall health and improving their lives.
I love working one-on-one with a patient, learning who they are as well as their treatment desires and concerns. My husband, Dr. Bryan, and I, along with our team, are dedicated to delivering the best treatment experience. Because we offer a wide range of care options, we’re able to provide most procedures in house, where our patients feel safe and at home. When a patient thanks me and our team, at the end of a visit, and smiles happily, I know we’re doing things right. — Dr. Dedi Turner
Education and Experience
Dr. Dedi and Dr. Bryan met at Indiana University. He was studying biology and Dedi was finishing dual bachelor’s degrees in chemistry and dental hygiene. They married in 1993 and welcomed twin daughters the following year.
As many families know, balancing work, education, and children can be a challenge. Never losing sight of the big picture, Dedi continued with her studies while Bryan cared for the children. She graduated in 1995 with a Doctorate in Dental Surgery from the Indiana University School of Dentistry.
After completing her formal schooling, Dr. Dedi started her own dental practice, which she owned and operated for more than 12 years. After years of living and working near her own family in Indiana, Dr. Dedi and Dr. Bryan decided to pursue a new opportunity: they opened a practice together in his childhood state of Kentucky.
Dr. Dedi is passionate about constantly learning. She knows the importance of staying up to date on developments in dentistry, in order to provide patients with the best care and widest range of treatment options. Each year she completes many hours of continuing dental education. Among the topics Dr. Dedi has studied are: TMJ-TMD, dental implants, and laser and periodontal therapies.
