Dr. Melinda Kuhn - Dentist Reno NV

Dr. Melinda Kuhn is originally from South Mississippi, where she earned her bachelor’s degree from Millsaps College and master’s degree from Mississippi College. She completed her dental training at the University of MS School of Dentistry, where she was named a 2003 Hinman Dental Society Scholar and received the American Academy of Periodontology Award, Pierre Fauchard Academy Award, and Quintessence Award for Research Achievement.

After completing dental training, Dr. Kuhn had the opportunity to be a practicing dentist in Reno with Health Access Washoe County and her husband Andrew earned his PhD at the University of Nevada, Reno. Dr. Kuhn also practiced for the Indian Health Service in Fallon, Nevada, followed by an associateship in private practice in Minden and Zephyr Cove, Nevada. She was very happy to once again be a Reno dentist with the establishment of Kuhn Family Dentistry in early 2011. The Kuhns chose to settle in Northern Nevada in part because they enjoy many of the great outdoor activities provided by the Sierras. They are avid snow skiers and love to hike, golf, and explore the Tahoe area with their son Grayden.

In her free time, she enjoys traveling, trying new foods, and spending time with family and friends. She chose Dentistry as her profession because she wanted to make a difference.
