Dr. Trevor Gibbs joined Dr. Kirkhoff & Dr. Parker at the New Ulm Dental Clinic last July and the Willkommen Committee stopped to welcome and meet him! Dr. Gibbs is a Le Center, MN native and moved to New Ulm only last year when he began at the dental clinic. He earned his Bachelor of Science from MSU-Mankato and obtained his Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University of Minnesota. He and Dr. Kirkhoff were actually dental school classmates and then Dr. Gibbs went on to complete a General Practice Residency Program at the V.A. Medical Center in Minneapolis. He has previous work history in health care, working in group homes with clients with developmental disabilities and he also enlisted with the Army National Guard in 1999 as a combat medic. He served 3 over-sea tours including Bosnia, Kosovo and Kuwait & Iraq in 2011-12. Dr. Gibbs still serves today. Being a dentist wasn’t always his dream, he thought at one time he wanted to do something with architecture but his time as a medic with the National Guard turned him onto more of a health care career, where he thought maybe nursing, a physician or even a surgeon. It was when he met his now wife Allie that he took a step back to look at the big picture and what he really wanted and would best suit a family. His father-in-law, also a dentist, suggested the dental profession and he then did a job shadow with him and the rest was history! New Ulm Dental Clinic is currently accepting new patients and can be reached at 507-233-9400 or online at newulmdental.com. Congratulations and welcome to New Ulm, Dr. Trevor Gibbs and thank you for your service!
