Kurt Stormberg, D.D.S., M.S.
I grew up in Omaha, Nebraska, where I was one of ten children. My dad is a children's dentist and my older brother is a general dentist, both in Omaha. Of course, I'm a huge Nebraska Cornhusker fan! My hobbies include golf, running and most of all, spending time with my wonderful wife and college-age daughter.
I always wanted to serve my country, so after graduating from Creighton University School of Dentistry, I joined the United States Navy as a dental officer. Serving in the Navy was a great experience, especially my two years at sea on board the USS Germantown. While I was stationed at Camp Pendleton, completing my General Practice Residency, I knew San Diego was the place I wanted to call home.
I returned to the University of Nebraska and completed my orthodontic training in 1998. With my wife and baby daughter in tow, I was able to find a great practice in La Mesa with Dr. Dennis McKee in 1998.
I am certified by the American Board of Orthodontics and an Elite Provider for Invisalign with more than 1000 completed cases. In addition, I've been recognized by Invisalign with an Outstanding Leadership Award and honored by my peers, locally, as one of the Top Orthodontists in San Diego County.
My other passion is organized dentistry where I have served in many leadership positions including President of the San Diego County Dental Society and the Board of Director for a variety of orthodontic organizations. I have always felt it is very important to give back to my profession which has given me such a wonderful career.
I chose to specialize in orthodontics because I enjoy the challenges orthodontic treatment presents and I feel that by bringing smiles to my patients, I can influence their lives in a postive way. I enjoy talking with my patients and their families, learning what is happening in their lives. I have three generations of famlies in treatment and a number of patients turned employees, that have continued to enrich my life.
