Meet The Doctor
RONALD L. POLTERA, D.D.S.
My hometown is Hutchinson, KS and is where I graduated from High School. Afterwards, I graduated from Hutchinson Community College, Kansas State University and then the University of Missouri at Kansas City where I received my DDS degree to practice dentistry. My wife and I moved to Winfield in 1981 and were also blessed with a daughter, Carina,that same year. While sharing time with my father growing up, I picked up an interest in hunting quail and pheasant, as well as fishing. Along with that I enjoy nature and pursue being in the out of doors as much as possible.
Dentistry was my career choice based on talents in the sciences, the pleasure of meeting many interesting individuals and at the same time trying to help them in leading a healthier life. General Dentistry has allowed me a wide variety of different treatment modalities and to retain an interest in all of it. I have taken advanced training in orthodontics, including Invisalign, and also in oral conscious sedation.
I am a member of the Kansas Dental Association, American Orthodontic Society, and DOCS (Dental Organization Conscious Sedation).
