Hildebrand to retire from dental practice

Ross A. Hildebrand, DDS announces his retirement from private dental practice effective Jan. 1, 2019.

A Stafford native, Hildebrand attended UMKC School of Dentistry, graduating with honors in 1978. Fulfilling a military obligation, he moved his family to Germany in 1978 where he was awarded the Army Commendation Medal for his three years of service in the 92nd Medical Detachment Unit in Hanau, Germany. They returned to the USA in 1981 where Hildebrand served at the Fort Riley DENTAC Unit.

The Hildebrands came to Great Bend in 1982 where Ross practiced for one year with Dr. John J. Mingenback. His private practice was established in 1983 and he has served his patients in Great Bend and surrounding areas for 36 years.

Dr. Hildebrand has transferred his practice to Dr. Chad Ohnmacht to assure his patients have a continuation of their dental care. 

A transition/retirement reception will be held from 4:30-6 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 18, at the office, 3822 6th Street in Great Bend. All patients are welcome to attend.
