According to Dr. Wendy Peterson, the most enjoyable component of her career is that she gets to make connections with people every single day. Dentistry is the perfect blend of art and biology for her and most importantly, it is a helping profession. She offers a variety of experiences in numerous areas of general dentistry along with treating all ages and individuals with special needs.
Dr. Peterson earned her BA from Lindsey Wilson College in Columbia, KY and her DMD (Doctor of Dental Medicine) degree in 2018 from the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry. During her academic years, Dr. Peterson was engaged in community service by volunteering at Saturday morning clinics, which provide free services to area children and Mission Lexington clinics. Upon her completion of dental school, she was awarded The Class of 1967 Award for her biological orientation, technical capability, and socially sensitivity and the Humanitarian Award for her passion for service.
Dr. Peterson is a Minnesota native having grown up in Osakis and is glad to be back in her home state. She lives in Esko with her husband, Joel, and their two children, Aiden and Zowi. In her free time, Dr. Peterson enjoys camping, cross country skiing, running, and hunting.
