Meet Dr. Dennis Fehrman

Since 1987 I have had the honor to practice orthodontics, which has been a blessing. It’s not only been fulfilling on a professional and intellectual level, but on a personal one as well. I’ve gotten to know so many patients and their families over the years, and have gotten great satisfaction in helping create their smiles and improve their self-esteem and confidence.

I believe it is important to pay great attention to individual patient needs, quickly bonding with patients and taking the time to explain the orthodontic process in a way that is understandable. The final result is what we’re proud to call the “Fehrman Smile.”

Education and Continuing Education

I am a native of central Wisconsin, having spent my childhood in nearby Clintonville. Since 1987, the Wausau area has been home to my wife Marcy and me, along with our two children and two golden retrievers, Steve and Jozy.

After high school, I attended UW-Eau Claire and received my bachelor’s degree in 1981. I continued my education at Marquette University School of Dentistry and received my Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 1985. During dental school, I underwent orthodontic treatment, which created a desire to specialize in the field. Subsequently, I entered the orthodontic residency program at Marquette University and completed my certification and master’s degree in the specialty of orthodontics in 1987.

Professional Affiliations

I am a member of the county, state, and regional chapters of the American Dental Association and American Association of Orthodontics, and the Wisconsin Society of Orthodontists. I have served as president of the Marathon County Dental Society and on the ethics committee for the Wisconsin Dental Association. I am also an active member and orthodontic advisor for the Central Wisconsin Dental Forum (Seattle Study Club).
