Dr. Kurt S. Potach
I am most interested in helping my patients achieve higher states of oral health and esthetics while keeping them comfortable in the process. I strive for excellence and precision in every procedure. Every day presents with a unique combination of challenges and procedures; this is what excites me about my profession. I love the relationship aspects of patient care as well. I consider all of my patients to be friends and do my best to keep our visits warm and inviting. My profession is extremely important to me as it is one that I truly love. After 33 years I have no regrets and would choose this profession again in a heartbeat. My life is enriched every day by interacting with and helping my patients achieve better health.
Education and Experience
I attended St. Olaf College in Northfield, MN, for my undergraduate studies and the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry for my Doctorate of Dental Surgery. I completed my Prosthodontics Residency at the University of Minnesota and taught at the School of Dentistry for a few years prior to moving back to Austin.
I regularly participate in continuing education to stay current in the dental profession and provide the best patient care possible. As a graduate of the Pankey Institute of Advanced Continuing Dental Education, I am confident that our patients receive the very best, most modern treatments available.
About Our Office
Our team is wonderful at creating an environment that is welcoming for our patients. They take ownership in our practice and strive for excellence in clinical care while keeping patient comfort and convenience at the forefront. One of the first things you probably will hear in our office is laughter; our team truly enjoys working together and keeps the atmosphere upbeat!
Outside the Office
I grew up right here in Austin, MN, and live just south of here with my wife, Brenda, our children, Kira, Karl, Karyn, and Kory, and our dog named Gunnar. I am passionate about my faith, family, and friends. Outside the office I can be found at home with my family, on vacation, at an auto race, or at a hockey game.
Being active in the community is very important to me as well because I want to give back as much as possible to the community that has been so kind to us. I am a member of the Austin Noon Lions Club, Bethlehem Church, and YMCA board. In memory of our son, we founded the Karl Potach Foundation to raise funds to support children’s cancer research.
