Dr. Hank Salyer, DMD


Dr. Hank was born and raised in Elkhorn City, KY the eastern part of the state.  He graduated from Transylvania University in 1991 and went on to receive his Doctorate of Dental medicine (DMD) at the University of Kentucky (UK).  Dedicated to the needs of children, he then completed a 2 year residency at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center (CCHMC). At Children's he focused on child psyche, development, and oral health. The residency included extensive exposure to children with various forms of medical diagnosis.


Dr. Hank first practiced in Denver in Cherry Creek for 2 years, making weekend recreational trips to Steamboat.  At this time he realized his

love for Steamboat Springs. He moved back to his home state after his

children were born to be closer to family and opened an office in

Richmond, KY...Dentistry for Children...it is still operating today in

Georgetown, Richmond, and Lexington, KY. After 14 years of rewarding

pediatric dentistry, Dr. Hank and his family relocated to Steamboat to

bring pediatric dentistry to Routt and Moffatt county, and opened A KIDZ
