drpeterson Venn R. Peterson D.D.S.

After a two year church mission to Norway, he attended Brigham Young University and graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Science in Botany/Pre-Dental Studies in 1996. In June of 2000, he graduated from the University of Washington School of Dentistry where he benefited from an excellent education in all phases of dentistry. After graduation, he and his family moved to Utah to begin practicing dentistry and he gained valuable experience in private practice there. In May of 2001, Dr. Peterson returned to the Pacific Northwest and purchased the dental practice of Dr. Philip B. Cramer who had been practicing in Lacey since 1983.

While Dr. Peterson is fascinated by the clinical aspects of dentistry and is dedicated to continual education to provide the best and safest dentistry possible, his true passion lies in the relationships he forms with his patients. He is friendly, caring, and strives to make every patient's comfort his highest priority. He genuinely cares about the individuals he is privileged to treat and he enjoys getting to know them and their families as much as he enjoys creating and maintaining healthy, beautiful smiles. Dr. Peterson is a member of the Thurston/Mason County Dental Society, the Washington State Dental Association, and the American Dental Association.

Dr. Peterson's greatest joys in life come from spending time with his family; his wife, Cathy, and four children, Drake, Natalie, Jill, and Melissa. Dr. Peterson enjoys singing, playing the guitar, most sports, and spending time outdoors. He is very involved with his church and volunteers his time to treat patients from the Union Gospel Mission in downtown Olympia. Dr. Peterson looks forward to meeting you and you becoming part of our dental family
