MEET DR. HENEGAR
Dentistry has been a lifelong passion for dentist Dr. Asher Henegar. As a boy, he can remember learning about all the different materials of the trade as his father, a dental ceramist and craftsman, artfully created dental tools. Encouraged to find joy in creating things with his hands, as well as develop an appreciation for compassion and care, Asher Henegar found his calling in dentistry. Dr. Henegar earned his undergraduate degree from Texas A&M University in College Station and went on to graduate from dental school at the University of Southern California. The next six years were spent in Irving, TX where Dr. Henegar practiced dentistry before moving to Colorado Springs, CO. Colorado Springs has been his home ever since, and he loves providing care for his fellow community members.
Dr. Asher Henegar is proud to be a member of the following societies:
- American Dental Association
- Colorado Dental Association
