Dr. J. Patrick Arnold, DMD

Dr. J. Patrick Arnold, DMD

“My goal as a provider is to provide compassionate care to all. I realize that it can be scary coming through the doors to see an oral surgeon and I want my patients to know that I will be there for them not only before and during the surgery, but afterward also. The patient always comes first in my practice.”

Dr. J. Patrick Arnold graduated from Temple University School of Dentistry in 2003. He then attended the Fort Carson 1 year AEGD program to advance his skills in General Dentistry. This led him to the Dwight D. Eisenhower Army Medical Center OMS Residency Program, which he completed in 2009. Immediately after residency, Dr. Arnold was stationed at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center, located in Germany, where he was able to work on wounded warriors from all over Europe, Iraq, and Afghanistan. He became board certified in 2011 and soon after entered the realm of academics.
