Dr. Tanner Brolsma became a dentist for the opportunity to improve the oral and overall health, appearance, and self-confidence of his patients while getting to know them on a personal level. He earned his bachelor’s degree at Vanderbilt University and then graduated with his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Iowa College of Dentistry, where he was named as the recipient of the Student Leadership Award. He began his career at Sioux Falls Smiles in 2020.
Dr. Brolsma’s favorite part of his job is building long-term relationships with patients and getting to know them on a personal level while helping them improve their oral health and being happy with their smile. Patients love his ability to actively listen and personalize care while making his patients feel heard, knowing they can trust him.
Additionally, Dr. Brolsma takes the necessary time to explain all dental procedures and answer all questions so patients always leave appointments at ease, comfortable, and without confusion. He is dedicated to furthering his education, which is one reason why he is a member of the South Dakota Dental Association.
When not finding ways to improve the dental care he is providing, Dr. Brolsma enjoys cooking, watersports, spending time with his fiance Gracie (who is also a dentist) and their Bernedoodle Clark, and cheering on the Iowa Hawkeyes!
