Tyler Rasmussen, DDS
“My vision has always been to be part of a practice whose main focus is on taking care of people and offering an exceptional experience, rather than obtaining certain production goals. Upon meeting Dr. Cavaretta and observing how he and the outstanding team at Hill Country Oral Surgery were already doing just that, I knew I had found my dream practice”. “Dr. Rasmussen is personable, respectful and treats everyone like he would his own family members. This guiding principle combined with excellent surgical skills and a passion for ongoing learning made him the perfect fit for our ever-expanding practice”, says Dr. Cavaretta.
Dr. Rasmussen had a unique path to becoming an oral surgeon. Between dental school and his oral surgery residency, he spent two years practicing “real world” clinical dentistry. This along with having four small children and one on the way, truly gives him a ‘360 degree’ view. He brings the different perspectives of father, dentist, and oral surgeon as he approaches problems and patients, and this elevates the care he delivers. For example, he completely empathizes with parents who fear anesthesia and surgery for their children. At the same time, he’s great with kids and knows how to calm the young, scared and possibly, uncooperative child. He also understands the importance of clear communication of the treatment plan with your referring dentist or orthodontist. He is dedicated to not only delivering the best result possible but in the safest, most comfortable way.
More about Dr. Rasmussen
Dr. Tyler Rasmussen grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah where much of his time was spent on the ski slopes or in the ice rink. He began his college career at Utah State University where he played division II hockey. During his college years, he served on a two-year service mission in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. Upon returning home, he transferred to the University of Utah to complete his degree in medical biology and be closer to a certain girl, Bonnie, that he’d known since seventh grade. He and Bonnie soon married and started a family.
He received an academic scholarship to attend dental school at Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska where he graduated Cum Laude. While in dental school he developed a particular interest in oral surgery and went on to complete an internship in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in Nashville, Tennessee. He then worked as a practicing dentist for two years before following his passion and going on to complete a residency in oral and maxillofacial surgery at the University of Rochester Medical Center in Western New York.
He and Bonnie are now personal chauffeurs to four children that keep them very busy with friends, sports, school and church activities. In his free time, he enjoys cycling, indoor soccer, and exploring the great outdoors with his family. Tyler and Bonnie feel fortunate to call Austin home and look forward to raising a family here.
