Meet Dr. Garrett Swanson

Dr. Garrett Swanson has the pleasure and privilege to serve people in the Reno area as well as the surrounding communities of Northern Nevada. First and foremost, Dr. Swanson recognizes that a trip to the dentist is traditionally not on most patients’ list of favorite activities. He understands that a dentist and a proctologist have a lot in common when it comes to peoples’ desire to visit, which is to say it can be severely lacking at times. It is this pervasive stigma of dentistry that he strives to change in the minds of his patients and hopefully in the community as a whole. Although his wife may sometimes disagree, Dr. Swanson is a great listener and takes the time to understand your concerns and goals related to your oral health. He is committed to restoring optimum oral health, and enhancing the natural beauty of each patient’s smile.

Dr. Swanson takes great pride in owning his local Reno private dental practice, which enables him to deliver personalized care of the highest quality. As a dentist devoted to lifelong learning, Dr. Swanson enjoys furthering his education by attending many dental courses each year so he can continue to provide the best possible treatment to his patients.

Born in the Chicago suburbs and raised in Nevada, Dr. Swanson is an alumnus of the University of Nevada, Reno, where he received his Bachelors degree and fell in love with the Reno area. He went on to study dentistry at the UNLV School of Dental Medicine, receiving his degree as a Doctor of Dental Medicine, and has been practicing in Reno, NV ever since.

Dr. Garrett Swanson is an active member of the following organizations:

  • Northern Nevada Dental Society, serving as current Vice President
  • Academy of General Dentistry
  • Nevada Dental Association, serving as a Delegate
  • American Dental Association
  • American Academy of Implant Dentistry
  • Spear Study Club

When out of the office, Dr. Swanson loves to be in the great outdoors, whether its hiking, camping, mountain biking, or just exploring the beautiful landscapes of northern Nevada with his wife, Ana, and two boys. Dr. Swanson is a big lover of music, the arts, and has come to enjoy the craft of woodworking.

Having been in the dental field for over ten years, I appreciate and value high quality dentistry. Dr. Garrett Swanson not only has amazing bed-side manner but his attention to detail, perfectionism, and genuine interest in his patients’ health makes his dentistry and service exceptional…

I love Swanson Dental! Dr. Swanson is a people person and he cares about his patients and how they are doing. He doesnt try to push procedures for the extra money and he explains every option. He is the ONLY Dentist who has been able to get me numb the first time, rather than me having to stop and ask for more. All around, the hygienist and the staff are very Professional and kind and know what they’re doing here! I highly recommend this Office!

I had a in-house teeth whitening with Dr. Swanson and staff. In one hour, they were able to make my teeth gleaming white. Very happy with how great my teeth look. So much easier then messing with at home treatments. Totally recommend.

This place makes trips to the dentist pleasant and uplifting! I recommend them to anyone and everyone. Dr. Garrett Swanson is patient, encouraging and all around the best dentist I’ve ever seen. What’s more – the staff are all just as awesome! Would give 6 stars if I could!
