Meet The Team

 Dr. David Reichwage and Team are part of the faculty of dental education program at Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne campus

As a faculty member of the Indiana University-Purdue University dental education program, I can relate to you how we stress skills and education for our students. Students acquire knowledge through in school training classes as well as out in our community dental offices. We have had the fortunate opportunity to have Dr. Reichwage and his team as participants in the program.

It was apparent to the faculty and staff of the dental assisting department that Dr. Reichwage’s office was special due to their utilization of dental assistants. The technology that our students are exposed to by this team is matched by few others in this area. The students are shown many new techniques in dentistry as well as beautiful cosmetic cases that the team provides to their patients.

Students have always evaluated Dr. Reichwage and his team with high marks. They have always been able to provide the students with an educational experience that makes them want to become well trained dental professionals.
