Welcoming Patients from Dubuque, Davenport, Dyersville, IA, Nearby Wisconsin and Galena, IL


Dr. Kristen Berning, of Exceptional Dentistry at 4200 Asbury Road, Dubuque, IA  52002, has recently completed an advanced comprehensive Post-Graduate Continuing Education Program in Esthetic Dentistry at The University of Minnesota in Minneapolis.

“This is a unique opportunity for practicing dentists to become involved with the latest techniques in cosmetic dentistry” said Paul Belvedere, D.D.S., Adjunct Professor and Cosmetic Dentist, School of Dentistry. The University of Minnesota is one of only two premiere university-based clinical training centers for contemporary esthetic dentistry in the country.”

“Participating dentists acquire their skills working with the leading clinical teachers” stated Paul Olin, D.D.S., M.S., Director of the Postgraduate Programs in Esthetic Dentistry. “Esthetic restorative procedures are important to patients and dentists alike; both can appreciate the immediate results and the innovative conservation of the tooth structure.”

Dr. Berning is now one of very few dentists in all of North America who have achieved this level of training in Contemporary Esthetic Dentistry.  It distinguishes her as a cosmetic dentist with advanced training.

The rigourous 100 hour course took place over the last several months while Dr. Berning was pregnant with her third child.  Dr. Berning is pictured with the course instructors and her 1 month old baby Ted, who was basically with her for the entire course! :)
