Dr. Andrew C Althauser, DDS PC

Dr. Andy Althauser, DDS Dr. Althauser grew up in the rural farming community of Pleasant Hill, Missouri. He graduated with a BS in biology from the University of Missouri-Columbia in 1999 and received his Doctorate in Dental Surgery from the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Dentistry in 2004. After graduation, Dr. Althauser moved to Missoula, Montana, to start his dental career as a staff dentist at Partnership Health Center. The majority of the work performed at the community clinic involved removing teeth beyond repair from patients in severe pain. Though it was rewarding to help patients with their immediate dental needs, Dr. Althauser envisioned a practice focused on preventing problems, restoring teeth and promoting long-term health.

"I am incredibly blessed to live in this community and practice a profession that implements my personal passion for health and all the opportunities it creates. I recognize every day the privilege it is to assist the clients of Smile Missoula in achieving their health goals."
