Learn more about Dr. Ronning below!

What made you choose dentistry?  

I knew from a young age that I wanted to go into healthcare because it combined my love of science and helping people. What specifically drew me to Dentistry was that it not only combined these things, but also added an artistic component to healthcare.   

What do you love most about being a dentist or what do you find the most rewarding?  

I really enjoy seeing firsthand how my dental work can improve my patients’ lives. If I fix a broken tooth, I can see the joy it brings to my patient to restore their smile! If a patient has a toothache, I can see the immense relief I can bring them by treating the toothache, etc.  

What’s your care/treatment philosophy?  

My treatment philosophies can be summed up best by the phrases: “If it’s not broke, don’t fix it” and “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” I enjoy working with my patients to create and maintain healthy and beautiful smiles.  

Is there a particular area of dentistry you enjoy the most or like to focus on?  

I enjoy all aspects of dentistry – from routine check-ups and small procedures like fillings, to large surgical procedures like extractions & bone grafts, root canals; cosmetic procedures and everything in between. I like helping my patients obtain a healthy smile.  

When did you start or how many years have you been with Park Dental?   

I joined Park Dental in 2017.   

What is one thing you love most about Park Dental?   

I appreciate Park Dental’s patient centered values. I appreciate the flexibility we offer to our patients with evening and weekend hours. Park Dental follows a high standard of excellence and is a leader in the field of Dentistry.   

What do you enjoy most about being part of a group practice?   

I enjoy being able to collaborate with my colleagues and work together to learn and grow as doctors.   


And now, let’s get to know Dr. Ronning on a more personal level!


What did you want to be when you were a kid? 

I wanted to be a doctor and a mom.  

What was your very first job? 

I first worked as a Red Cross Water Safety Aid (assistant swim lessons instructor) and lifeguard. I also worked as a babysitter. 

What do you like to do on your days off? 

Spend time with my husband, children, and dogs.    

Who is your hero or who inspires you?  

St. Gianna Beretta Molla and St. Mother Teresa of Calcutta.

What’s your favorite holiday? 

It’s probably a tie between Easter and Christmas.

Do you have any hidden talents? 

I can play 5 musical instruments and I have a lot of experience singing in choirs.   

What’s your favorite season? 

All of them! Spring, summer, autumn and winter – each season brings its own excitement and things to look forward to.   

What’s your favorite animal? 

My three miniature poodles.

How many different states have you lived in? 

I’ve lived in 2 states, but have visited 19 states so far.
