Ever since middle school, Dr. Hussong knew that he had a passion for dentistry and wanted to pursue it professionally. After receiving his Bachelor’s degree from the University of Iowa in 1974, he accomplished his dream and earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) from the University Of Iowa College Of Dentistry in 1978.
Dean married his high school sweetheart, Ann, in 1974 and moved to Wisconsin in 1978. They chose Tomahawk, Wisconsin for its small town, family friendly environment and the beauty of the natural surroundings. Together Dean and Ann have three adult children; Ryan, Brent, and Megan, and two granddaughters, Brynn and Maren (with hopes of adding to that number!).
An avid outdoorsman, Dean has hunted and fished throughout the Midwest, Canada, and beyond. He always has an entertaining tale to tell! Dean’s other hobbies include cross-country skiing, boating, traveling, and photography.
Dr. Hussong makes continuing education the foundation of his career. Although he performs a full range of general dentistry services, he does have areas of special expertise. Dental implants, which were once considered the wave of the future, have become a routine component of his practice. He is one of the few general dentists in Wisconsin qualified to perform all phases of the dental implant procedure, including the initial surgery and final restoration. Dr. Hussong is one of an elite handful of general dentists in Wisconsin to hold a Class III certification for administering IV sedation and has completed over 1200 sedation cases.
Dr. Hussong is a member of the American Dental Association and Wisconsin Dental Association, serving as a trustee, board member and past chairman of the continuing education committee. He belongs to the American Academy of General Dentistry and various dental societies and study clubs. In 1989 Dr. Hussong was issued a patent for a dental suction device.
