Drew Hutinger, DDS, says the best part of his job is knowing he made a difference in someone’s life. “There is no better feeling than helping others become a better version of themselves and achieve greater overall health.” A self-proclaimed “perfectionist”, Dr. Hutinger will work diligently to achieve the best possible outcome for his patients. Working as a general dentist, he will see patients of all ages, providing a range of services including dental exams, oral surgery, periodontics, dental implants, cosmetic dentistry, and more.
Dr. Hutinger strives to provide a friendly, comfortable atmosphere for his patients at Eastridge Family Dental. “I love dentistry because I get to make connections with people and help them with their oral health. There is no better feeling than helping others become confident in their smiles again as their oral health improves and their smile changes.”
A graduate of the University of Missouri-Columbia, Dr. Hutinger went on to earn his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the UMKC School of Dentistry. He also completed one year of general practice residency at the Truman Medical Center-Lakewood in Lee’s Summit where he gained additional experience in all areas of dentistry, including implantology and oral surgery.
Growing up in Sedalia, MO, Dr. Hutinger married his High School sweetheart, Jenny, who he’s known since kindergarten. The couple is expecting their first child – a baby boy – in late October. In his adolescent years, Dr. Hutinger was treated with Invisalign® clear aligners to help correct his smile, and credits this experience for sparking his interest in dentistry.
When he’s not delivering exceptional care for his patients, Dr. Hutinger enjoys hiking with his wife and their dog, Copper, at local spots including Shawnee Mission Lake Park and Lake Jacomo. The Hutingers currently reside in Blue Springs, MO.
