Our Team

Dr. Michael Wendelboe

Dr. Michael Wendelboe, DMD

Born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada, I graduated from Las Vegas High School and continued to University of Nevada Las Vegas where I completed my undergraduate before attending the UNLV School of Dental Medicine. I feel blessed and honored to have been serving my Las Vegas community as a family dentist for over 17 years.

I take great pride in caring for my patients, offering a wide range of treatment options including implants, molar root canals, laser treatments, and clear aligner orthodontics.

When I am not caring for my patient’s smiles, you can find me cheering on my daughters at their volleyball games or swim meets. I also enjoy playing pickleball or golfing when my busy family schedule allows.

Our family has called Las Vegas home for over 40 years, and I truly believe there is no better place to live or community to serve. I look forward to the opportunity to be your trusted family dentist.
