Jim Zenk has practiced general dentistry in Montevideo since 1981. After graduating from the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry, he and his wife, Sonja, moved back to their home town. They have 3 grown children and now 7 grandchildren, with Zachary Charles Zenk (#7) born on 6-16-13. Dr. Zenk devotes his free time to the love of the outdoors, participating in sports, volunteering at Rice Hospital Dental Clinic and enjoying his grandchildren.
Most recently, Dr. Zenk was elected to a four year term as the American Dental Association Trustee for District 10. The ADA 10th District emcompasses the states of MN, IA, NE, ND and SD. The Board of Trustees is the adminstrative and managing body of the American Dental Association. Dr. Zenk is also a member of the Academy of General Dentistry and a Fellow of the American College of Dentists and the International College of Dentists.
Dr. Zenk enjoys practicing in a general dentistry setting where he can give special attention to teaching preventive dentistry to his patients. After practicing for 32 years in Montevideo, many of the patients he saw as children are now parents and bringing their children to see him. The concept of good dental health through prevention and regular maintenance care has been successful to these patients, and they want to see the same great care and preventative education carried out for their children. Developing a heritage of good dental health in Montevideo is Dr. Zenk's primary concern as your hometown
