CEO Letter Chip Peal, FACHE CEO, Frankfort Regional Meet Dr. Mortenson Brent Mortenson, DMD, Oral/Maxillofacial Surgeon Why I became a physician: I have a family tradition to uphold—my father, brothers and four of my cousins are all dentists. I also love the surgical aspect of dentistry, so I am able to mix my family background with my profession. It is a perfect fi t for me. Favorite part of my job: Helping people overcome fears and seeing their smiles once a procedure is completed Best advice I have received: Treat your patients like family and the rest of your practice issues will fall into place. My favorite place in Central Kentucky: U.S. Route 60, between Versailles and Frankfort—it's a beautiful drive I start each day spending time with my family. Clinical interests: Routine oral surgery, orthognathic surgery, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder surgery and reconstructive surgery, including dental implants Education: University of Louisville School of Dentistry Postgraduate training: University of Washington Specialty board certifi cation: American Board of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Offi ce locations: Frankfort and Middletown, KY To learn more about Dr. Mortenson or to make an appointment, call 877-FRMC-MD1 (877-376-2631) or visit FrankfortRegional. com and select "Meet Our New Doctors."
