3D Dental is a family dental practice that prides itself on being focused to the entire family’s needs.  They typically begin regular check-ups on children starting around 2 or 3 years of age into all stages of adulthood, and offer services from routine dental care to the most innovative procedures.  Dr. Dean DeWispelare, the owner of 3-D Dental, is a graduate of the College of Dentistry at UNMC and was practicing for several years before deciding to open his own practice with his wife, Sabrina.

How did you get started in the business? – After dental school, I was an associate dentist for approximately seven years.  I decided to go out on my own so that could offer my services in a more family-oriented practice and to give back more to my community.

What do you see as one of the biggest turning points in your life? – My wonderful father passing away in 1996 taught me to live life each day and never take anything for granted, and meeting my beautiful wife, Sabrina, has blessed me with four amazing children!

What is your favorite thing to do on a day off? – I love to go to the family farm, any type of yard work, golf, playing paintball with my oldest son, watching high school Marching Band, and watching my kids play soccer.
