Dr. Rasmussen (pronounced “RAS-miss-sun”) joined Uptown Dental Associates in 2017 after graduating Magna Cum Laude from Creighton University School of Dentistry in Omaha, Nebraska. Originally from Twin Falls, Idaho, Dr. Rasmussen earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Zoology, as well as a Master’s of Science Degree in Immunology from Idaho State University, where he also completed extensive PhD research in Microbiology prior to beginning dental school. At graduation, Dr. Rasmussen was honored with several awards for his excellence in dental school, including the award for Excellence in Implant Dentistry from the Academy of Osseointegration, as well as the Leadership in Endodontics Award.
Dr. Rasmussen and his sweet wife Tonya have five children: 2 boys and 3 girls that help to keep him incredibly busy while not directly caring for our patients. When he isn’t at work or tucking his children into bed, he can most often be found serving in his local church community or exploring the great outdoors. He is an avid fly fisherman, and he and his family look forward to discovering all of New Mexico’s rivers and streams.
