Meet Dr. Westphal
I attended Dental School in Lincoln, Nebraska at University of Nebraska Medical Center Dental School and graduated in 1982. I moved to the Panhandle in 1982 and worked in Morrill with Dr. Dan Howard for a few years before permanently setting up my practice here in Scottsbluff.
In 2010 I was invited to be a mentor for the Cerec Doctors program. I travel to Arizona a several times a year to continue my
knowledge in the changing Cerec procedures as well as helping new dentists train in the Cerec technology. It has been extremely rewarding. I
belong to the Academy of General Dentistry. In the past year, I have taken 77 course hours with the Academy of General Dentistry to continue my knowledge in the field of dentistry.
Reason for Pursuing Dentistry:
I decided to pursue a career in dentistry because I enjoy working with my hands and working with people.
I married my wife Amy in 1986. We live in Scottsbluff, and we are constantly traveling to keep up with our 3 daughter’s sports careers. My hobbies include hunting, fishing, camping, reading, and spending time with family.
