Dr. John Tessendorf


I have been practicing for over 40 years and feel that my patients are my family. I really love getting to know them personally and always look forward to telling them a joke or two. I have been fortunate to meet some of the most amazing people through the care I provide. The patients and those that serve alongside me are the reason I love coming to work every day.  Ours is an office dedicated to quality, compassionate, gentle care. Though we have the latest technology, it is really our friendly staff and doctors and shared sense of mission that makes the difference.

We have been told time and time again that people look forward to coming into the Dental Health Center for their appointments simply because they know they are going to have a lot of fun. Patients tend to stick around for a while after their procedure so they can continue to laugh and hang out with our doctors and staff. That’s not something a lot of people associate with a trip to the dentist.

I attended Marquette Dental School and graduated in 1979. Beyond general dentistry, my education includes orthodontics, laser dentistry, TMJ disorders, sedation dentistry, sleep apnea solutions, and much more. To be the best doctor I can be for my patients, I strive to stay up-to-date with the latest technologies and best practices.

I enjoy spending time with my family including my wife, Jaque, my two sons, Dr. Thomas and Aaron. I also have three beautiful grandchildren that are my world. By far, my favorite leisure activity is golf!
