Moving In and Renovating the New Office
Dr. Salthouse is the oldest of five siblings, and his father is from New Zealand, making him one-half Kiwi. He grew up in St. Clement Parish and attended elementary school there. Later, he went to De Smet Jesuit High School before earning his Biomedical Science degree from Maryville University. Dr. Salthouse then attended UMKC dental school, and completed his Pediatric Residency at the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine, where he became Board Certified by the American Board of Pediatric Dentists. As a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentists, he has practiced in Cleveland, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, and Kansas City, and he currently belongs to Christ Prince of Peace Parish.
Outside of work, Dr. Salthouse has a variety of passions. He loves spending time with his family and friends, and he enjoys getting involved in his community. When he’s not practicing dentistry, you can find him playing hockey, golf, tennis, or even e-sports!
As a pediatric dentist, Dr. Salthouse’s primary goal is to help children have the best possible experience while receiving dental care. He strongly believes in setting them up for success in the future. On a personal note, he is happily married to his wonderful partner Daniell, and they are expecting a new member of the Salthouse Smiles family in September!
