Meet our doctor, Leasa Dornbier, DDS
Dr. Leasa Dornbier is a Nebraska native, having grown up in Lodgepole, NE, just 18 miles from her office in Sidney. Dr. Dornbier earned her bachelor's degree in biology from the University of Nebraska at Kearney, and worked as a dental assistant for several years before attending dental school in Lincoln. She graduated from the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Dentistry in 2007. Dr. Dornbier has been in private practice since that time.
Dr. Dornbier completed her dental implant placement training through the University of Texas San Antonio Preceptorship in Oral Implantology in 2009. This is a rigorous program that requires three-day training sessions every month for six months at UTSA. Dr. Dornbier is a member of the Nebraska Dental Association and the American Dental Association, and she is a Fellow in the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. She was trained to administer Botox® through the American Academy of Facial Esthetics and is a member of that organization. Dr. Dornbier meets and exceeds the ADA's requirements for continuing education, and she strives to stay educated on the newest techniques and products available in dentistry.
Giving back to her community is important to Dr. Dornbier, and she does this by volunteering to care for the underserved in both the Nebraska Mission of Mercy program and the University of Nebraska's Dental Day. She hosts dental students each year when they do extramural rotations to share the experience of private practice dentistry.
Leasa, her husband and their children enjoy being outdoors. They love to hike, bike, camp and ski in their free time. Leasa feels so fortunate to have a wonderful, supportive family and a career she absolutely loves. Her main goal for her patients is to make their dental experience a positive one by providing the highest quality care in a relaxed and comfortable environment.
