Dr. Jared Kahl
Growing up, Jared Kahl never thought about a career in dentistry. In high school he was on track for a career in business, until he had orthodontic treatment by his family dentist. He rarely smiled due to his crooked front teeth. After orthodontics, he now smiles all the time. Dentistry not only improved his smile but it also improved his self-image.It was then that Dr. Kahl thought if he could help just one person the way he was helped, a career in dentistry would be more fulfilling than business.Not only does he enjoy providing care for his patients at the office, he enjoys volunteering as well. He participates in Give Kids a Smile Day, Hope Fest and in 2006 he traveled to El Salvador as a member of a United States Air Force humanitarian medical/dental mission. For ten days he provided dental care and oral health education to citizens of El Salvador without access to dental care. Dr. Kahl says “Volunteering my time to educate and improve the overall oral health of individuals who otherwise may not receive dental care is one of the most rewarding aspects of my profession.”Dr Kahl came to Arizona in 2004 by way of Davis-Monthan AFB. He originally grew up in Montana. During dental school, he joined the USAF. Upon graduation, he completed a one year general dentistry residency at Wright-Patterson AFB, OH. After three and a half years of service, Dr. Kahl separated from the USAF and decided to make Tucson home. He became a partner in Dental Care on Golf Links in January, 2010.
“I have opportunities to improve people’s lives every day”, says Dr. Kahl. “The patient’s expression after creating a new smile and their gratitude makes going to the office enjoyable.”Outside of dentistry Jared enjoys many activities. He travels back to Montana to see his family, goes on hikes with his one year old boxer Stella, and he recently began learning how to play the piano. His main passion however is golf. On the weekends, your best chance of finding him is on a golf course.
