I am Keith Gressell.
I grew up in Scranton, PA. Yes, that Scranton from, The Office! After graduating from The University of Scranton in 2001 with a BS in Biology, I moved to Philadelphia to attend Temple University School of Dentistry. I graduated in 2005 earning my DMD. Upon graduation, I joined the US Army as a Captain and was stationed in Landstuhl, Germany. During my time in Germany, I deployed to 2 different theaters of operation, serving local nationals and military members of Afghanistan, Benin, and Iraq.
After completing my tour in 2012, I obtained my German Dental Approbation License and opened a private practice in Wiesbaden, Germany, which serviced military family members, US Consulate staff and Expats alike. I enjoy all aspects of General Dentistry, with a focus on Oral surgery and Implantology. While in Germany, I was trained and became a Nobel Biocare Certified provider. I pride myself in converting the most dental-phobic patients to dentist-loving ones with a great chair side comedy, bad singing, and somewhat “OK” dentistry! (See the comedy there already?!?)
I am the inventor of LinguaGuard. A dental suction device that is used to aide the dental assistant in suction and cheek/tongue retraction with the use of only one hand. Check out the website here: www.linguaguard.com
I moved to San Antonio, TX in March 2017 and worked in private practice with my now wife Jackie for 2 years before returning to her hometown of Gig Harbor. I have 3 beautiful children; Madison, Sawyer, and Ellie. We all enjoy the outdoors, water-sports and some family fun time! I am an avid sports fan and Classic rock enthusiast as well.
I am super excited to bring my talents to Silverdale Dental Center and look forward to working with everyone soon!
