Dr. Nathaniel Dockstader and familyDr. Nathaniel Dockstader, DMD

Dr. Dockstader fell in love with Arizona and Arrowhead Ranch Dentistry during his time as a dental student at Midwestern University. He really enjoyed driving by the practice and appreciated the uniqueness of it. Following graduation, Dr. Dockstader served in the U.S. Navy for four years in San Diego and Oceanside, California. Although he enjoyed serving with the Sailors and Marines, he separated from the U.S. Navy and returned to Arizona in search of a permanent home.

Dr. Dockstader strives to treat all of his patients with compassion and respect. He realizes that patients often feel uneasy about coming to the dentist and wants all patients to feel that they have made the right choice by coming to Arrowhead Ranch Dentistry. He hopes that his gentle, conservative and comprehensive approach will reassure patients and make their future dental visits more enjoyable.

Dr. Dockstader is incredibly grateful to call Arrowhead Ranch Dentistry his permanent home. He and his wife, Allison, have 3 children. They are excited to plant roots and raise their family in the Northwest Valley. The opportunity to live in and serve the Glendale community for many years to come is truly a dream come true for them.
