Coming Soon! - Adam Kochendorfer DDS

Adam Kochendorfer DDSDr. Adam Kochendorfer was born and raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota. While obtaining his Biomedical Engineering degree from the University of Minnesota, he was working for 3M in their Dental Division. It was then that his interest in becoming a dentist was sparked. From there he attended The University of Minnesota School of Dentistry where he graduated with a Doctor in Dental Surgery in 2007. Dr. Kochendorfer, or 'Dr. K' as many of his patients and team refer to him now, then became a dental officer for the United States Navy. He served the Navy for five years, including a tour in Afghanistan.

Dr. Kochendorfer moved to Humboldt County in 2012 when his wife, Dr. Román, purchased Dr. Schonfeld's periodontal office. They fell in love with the area, and immediately began to enjoy all the area had to offer. Dr. Kochendorfer purchased Dr. Berg's office in Eureka, and now is excited to associate with Dr. Barsanti to form the Barsanti Dental Group in Arcata.

Dr. Kochendorfer lives in Blue Lake with his wife and their toddler son, Emmet. They enjoy hiking, biking, and exploring Humboldt's natural wonders.
