Dr. Andy Ingersoll is from a small town near Salt Lake City, Utah. He went to American Fork High School where his grandfather was his biology teacher, principal and best friend. Growing up, he wanted to be a teacher like his grandfather or a professional golfer. However, when his 20+ handicap wouldn’t get him into professional golf, he decided to pursue other interests.
The field of dentistry always intrigued Dr. Andy, as his great-grandfather was a dentist. After visiting his dental office (located in his great-grandfather’s basement), he realized how interesting a dental career must be.
Following high school, Dr. Andy lived in France for a couple years serving as a missionary for his church. Dr. Andy then attended Brigham Young University, where he received his undergraduate degree in French with a minor in Business.
He decided to pursue his passion by attending Case Western Reserve School of Dental Medicine in Cleveland, Ohio. Upon graduation in 2010, Dr. Andy was awarded the Dean’s Clinical Achievement Award for being one of the top clinicians in his dental class. While in dental school, he received a Health Professions Scholarship from the United States Air Force and commissioned as an officer in 2007.
Following graduation, Dr. Andy completed an arduous Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency at Offutt Air Force Base in Omaha, Nebraska, further strengthening Dr. Andy’s skills in advanced dentistry procedures.
Following residency, the Air Force transferred the Ingersoll family to England where they served a three year tour at RAF Lakenheath, near Cambridge, UK. Dr. Andy thoroughly enjoyed serving his country in the United States Air Force and contributed greatly to the mission of the 48th Dental Squadron.
While in the Air Force, Dr. Andy particularly enjoyed his time in the pediatric clinic; he had so much fun working the children who were stationed with their parents in England, that he decided to pursue additional training in pediatric dentistry.
He was very fortunate to be 1 of 2 residents accepted into the Pediatric Dental Residency Program at Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City.
When he is not in the office, Dr. Andy can be found spending time with his wife and college sweetheart, Lauren. They are kept busy by their 5 active children (3 girls, 2 boys). As a family, they enjoy traveling, skiing, hiking, biking and adventuring.
