Dr. Kyle Rush and our entire office team
Dr. David Rush grew up in rural southeastern Kansas, where he learned to love hard work, sports of all types, and the great outdoors. After graduating from high school, he attended Brigham Young University, where he earned his Bachelor of Science in Microbiology with a minor in Chemistry. Dr. Rush then returned to Kansas City and attended the University of Missouri-Kansas City for his Doctorate of Dental Surgery. Upon graduation he and his wife, Michelle, and their three boys moved to Arizona where they added one more boy and two precious daughters to their family.
Dr. Rush's love of the outdoors, especially hiking and backpacking, made Arizona a natural fit. While raising his four boys he became involved in various leadership positions with The Boy Scouts of America, and is today a proud father of four Eagle Scouts. Dr. Rush also greatly enjoys spending time at various track and cross country events, where he cheers on his two daughters, who are long-distance runners.
Dr. Rush's favorite part of dentistry is seeing the way customized, individual treatment and oral care can not only transform his patients' smiles, but also boost their overall health and self-esteem. With over 25 years of experience, Dr. Rush excels in the areas of general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, sedation dentistry, dental reconstruction, laser gum treatments, and safe amalgam filling removal. In addition to his experience, Dr. Rush has also actively been continuing his education through a series of courses over the years, and recently even earned two new degrees: Doctor of Integrative Biologic Medicine (IBDM) and Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine (NMD). These degrees support his belief in the importance of overall body health, and he is pleased to be able to offer his patients new naturopathic options if they wish.
