Meet Our Dentist
William C. Kuttler, D.D.S.
Dr. Kuttler graduated from the University of Iowa College of Dentistry, spent two years in the United States Air Force practicing dentistry, then moved to Dubuque where he has practiced ever since.
A lifelong student, Dr. Kuttler is always seeking new information about dentistry. He received the prestigious Academy of General Dentistry Fellowship in recognition of his extensive number of hours of continuing education. He’s lectured to local, state, and national groups on clinical, behavioral, and philosophic dental topics. He also has been recognized by his peers with a fellowship in the American College of Dentistry.
Dr. Kuttler often comments how blessed he is that he became a dentist. His profession has allowed him to help people in many ways and work closely with a team of people who share similar values and attitudes, including his wife Sharon.
“What more could I ask of each day than to come to work with people I thoroughly enjoy and help people in significant ways? I am truly blessed by people’s trust and confidence.”
When he’s not in the office, Dr. Kuttler enjoys playing golf, riding his bicycle, being outdoors, traveling and reading. Perhaps his greatest love, outside of dentistry, is canoeing and camping in the Boundary Water Canoe Area Wilderness in northern Minnesota. He usually manages to spend a few long weekends there each year — recharging his batteries in the peace and quiet.
The Pankey Institute for Advanced Dental Education
Bill is the only dentist in Dubuque to have completed the entire Continuum at the renowned Pankey Institute. The Institute is a non-commercial organization and is representative of Bill’s beliefs in the value of learning and commitment to excellence.

"To improve the health and well-being of the world's citizens by helping dentists achieve
professional excellence and fulfillment....We will do our utmost to be the best at what we do and
remain the world's most prestigious learning organization for dentists...."
Bill continues with the Pankey Institute as a member of the L. D. Pankey Alumni Association.
The American Dental Association
As a member of the ADA, Bill has served in a variety of roles at the local, district and state levels through the Dubuque County, Dubuque District, and Iowa Dental Association.
