Dr. Stuart Tucker received his DDS degree at Creighton University School of Dentistry in Omaha, NE. He was accepted into one of the top pediatric dentistry residencies in the nation at Cincinnati Children’s hospital. His residency gave him extensive training in well-child care and behavior guidance, sedation dentistry, operating room dental care, and a special emphasis on treatment for patients with significant medical, physical and mental conditions.
During his residency, he discovered how fulfilling it is to work with special needs children and adults and children with extensive medical conditions. He enjoys helping children from any background and feels privileged to interact with youth on a daily basis.
Dr. Stu loves being around children and is a child at heart. Bike rides, jumping on the trampoline, card games, puzzles, reading, wrestling matches (usually involving pillows), and building with LEGOs are just a few of the activities he enjoys with his own active children.
Before his undergrad, Dr Stu spent 2 years living in Mexico on a service mission. As a result, he is fluent in Spanish and thoroughly enjoys authentic Mexican food.
His hobbies include cooking, grilling, crossfit, camping, hiking, cars, yard care, and watching movies with his kids. He can be bribed with Diet Coke and Reese’s.
Dr Stu has 5 silly children that keep life busy, fun, and exciting.
