Dr. William S Akey

I am a 1992 graduate of the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry. I completed a general practice residency at Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis before returning to my hometown and entering private practice in 1993. I maintain fellowships in the Academy of General Dentistry and the International Dental Implant Association and memberships in the American Dental Association, Wisconsin Dental Association, Chicago Dental Society and Academy of Laser Dentistry.

I formerly served on Test Construction Committees for National Board Dental Examinations and presently serve on a review committee for the Commission of Dental Accreditation. In addition, I am an adjunct faculty member at Northcentral Technical College's Dental Hygiene Program. My spare time is spent with my wife, son, and two daughters.
