I was raised in Wadena, Minnesota, and from a very young age I was drawn to people’s smiles. I have always wanted to help people feel better about smiling. To pursue my dream, I earned an undergraduate degree from Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota, and went on to dental school at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. After dental school, I served as a captain in the U.S. Air Force using my skills as a dentist for three years.
In 1993, I opened my general dental practice in Boulder, Colorado. Then, in 1997, after years of running a successful practice, I found my love for cosmetic dentistry. Today, we focus almost exclusively on cosmetic dentistry and provide guests in our practice with “incredible smiles” on a daily basis.
In 1997, I met and studied with Dr. William Dickerson who founded The Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI)*. Dr. Dickerson owns and operates a postgraduate teaching facility available to dentists. As a mentor and a friend, Bill helped me realize my talent as a cosmetic dentist. He furthered my own inspiration to provide great service and only materials I would place in my own mouth to my guests.
I enrolled in LVI in 1997 as a student to improve my skill as a cosmetic dentist. In 1998, I was asked to become one of the first instructors at LVI. Being an instructor has kept me up-to-date in the ever-improving world of dentistry and related technology. I teach several courses including Full Mouth Restoration. Teaching dentists from around the world in the art and science of cosmetic dentistry is one of the most satisfying things I do in my life. It brings me as much satisfaction as providing “incredible smiles” to the guests in my practice.
Dr. Lori Kemmet was inspired to be a dentist by her mother. Her mother worked for the same dentist for 35 years.
