Meet The Doctors

Dr. Kevin Mink

dr-minkDr. Mink is familiar to the practice as he and Dr. Rogers are long time friends, growing up in the East Mountains and having attended Moriarty High School together. Following high school, Drs. Mink and Rogers were roommates at Brigham Young University and graduated in 2008.  After receiving his bachelor’s of science from BYU, Dr. Mink headed to Philadelphia, PA for dental school.  While in Dental School, Dr. Mink qualified for the Military’s Health Professions Scholarship Program.  He earned his DMD from Temple University’s Kornberg School of Dentistry, and then embarked on 4 years of active duty military service.

2016-12-02_1529While serving in the military, Dr. Mink participated in over 100 hours of continuing education and was trained in advanced dental techniques by several dental specialists.  He was consistently rated among the top 10% of dental officers because of his passion for education and commitment to his patients.  Since then he continues to expand his education in order to provide the best care possible to his patients.
Outside of the office, Dr. Mink spends most of his time with his wife and 4 children.  He’s also an avid college football fan and loves to attend sporting events with his dad and brothers.

We are thrilled that Dr. Mink has returned home to New Mexico and joined Desert Ridge Dental.  If you see him around the office, feel free to welcome him back to Albuquerque and to our practice!
