Paying it Forward by Giving Back

Paying it Forward by Giving Back

Dr. Tanner McKenna

Dr. Tanner McKenna (D.D.S. ’01), began his dental career in the U.S. Navy Dental Corps, where he served for four years. A native of Wisconsin, Dr. McKenna now operates a thriving dental practice in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin. In 2013, Dr. McKenna was invited to speak at the American Dental Association Conference for New Dentists in Denver, CO.

Outside of dentistry, Dr. McKenna and his wife, Jill, are the proud parents of two boys. They spend countless hours swimming, reading, and enjoying other activities together. Dr. McKenna is proud of and grateful for the rigorous dental education he received at the School of Dentistry. As a Dean’s Circle member, giving back is his way of saying “thank you” to the many who prepared him for a successful and fulfilling dental career. “It was evident how well the University of Minnesota had prepared my classmates and I for the practice of dentistry ... I believe contributing helps further that legacy so new graduates leave the school confident and alumni continue to be proud.”
