Dr. Denise PrughOrthodontist/Board Certified Pediatric Dentist
I grew up in Casper having attended Manor Heights, East Junior High and Kelly Walsh High School. I started working in my father’s dental office when I was 13 and decided when I was 17 to become a dentist.
My college education began at Cottey College and then I finished my Bachelors of Science in Biochemistry at the University of Wyoming. For dental school I attended the University of Nebraska in Lincoln, Nebraska.
After practicing for three years in Casper as a general dentist I decided to return to school for further training. I was accepted to a residency program at UCLA where I specialized in both pediatric dentistry and orthodontics. After completing this 3 ½ year residency I returned to Casper to start my practice. I have been practicing for 23 years and I am the only dentist in Wyoming with that is dual trained in both pediatric dentistry and orthodontics.
Orthodontics doesn’t have to be a bad experience. Ultra Orthodontics is all about creating healthy, beautiful smiles in a fun and ultra cool environment.
What I love most about my career as an orthodontist is working with all ages. Whether you are 3 or 93, our team wants to help you love your smile and share it with the world.
I have been married for 30 years and have two boys that keep me running to musical and sports activities. As a family we enjoy spending time at Alcova lake in the summer doing all water sports , especially surfing and wakeboarding. In the winter downhill and nordic skiing are our favorites.
Casper is such an awesome community and I feel so lucky to get to help change the world one smile at a time here in Wyoming!
