Dr. Potthoff is a native of Scottsdale, Arizona but his family moved to Whitefish when he was in high school. He graduated from the University of the Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry in 1995, and initially set up his practice in Scottsdale. He and his wife later decided that the best place to raise their children was the Flathead Valley. They relocated here in 1999, which also kept their children close to their grandmother. Dr. Potthoff has been practicing in Kalispell ever since.
When he isn’t busy caring for his patients, Dr. Potthoff takes advantage of the natural beauty of the Flathead Valley. He and his wife Julie enjoy a healthy lifestyle that includes hiking, fishing, biking, and skiing. You may also find Dr. Potthoff out on a local golf course or tennis court. He treasures family time and virtually anything that involves the outdoors, especially on sunny days!
In addition to his busy practice and personal life, Dr. Potthoff engages in at least one hundred hours of continuing education every year. He studies implant technology under Dr. Arun Garg, DMD, and is a diplomat of the International Dental Implant Association. He provides the latest technological advances to his patients. He also is involved in dental mission work in the Dominican Republic.
Dr. Potthoff carries his passion for healthy living to his practice. At Potthoff Dentistry, patients receive more than just a standard check-up. Dr. Potthoff and his staff provide comprehensive dental health care and educate patients on whole-body wellness. His goal is that patients know and understand overall health along with dental health, promoting what he calls a “high dental IQ” patient.
