Meet Dr. Anthony Frank

Dr. Anthony Frank

I was born and raised in Bismarck, and have always cherished the North Dakota lifestyle. My wife and I are thrilled to be living in our hometown, and enjoy the simple things…like North Dakota winters.

After graduating from Century High School, I earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Montana State University—Bozeman, and a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Minnesota—Minneapolis.

Shortly after graduating from Dental School in 2008, I returned home to Bismarck, and began my career at A Lifetime of Smiles. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Drs. Ralph and Bob Honkola, and Dr. Derik Hoerner. Practicing in a group environment has afforded me a great opportunity to share different perspectives.

Since Dr. Hoerner and I purchased the practice in 2011, we have been committed to implementing our vision for the practice. We are dedicated to delivering the highest standards of care, and continuing the legacy of A Lifetime of Smiles.

We look forward to working with the patients of this great community.

Meet Dr. Derik Hoerner

Dr. Anthony Frank

I grew up on a farm north of Richardton, North Dakota, a small community about 70 miles west of Bismarck. When not at the office, I enjoy relaxing with family, helping out on the farm, hunting or spending time with my girlfriend, Katie.

I attended North Dakota State University for undergraduate and Creighton School of Dentistry for dental school. Following dental school, my dental career began at A Lifetime of Smiles with Drs. Ralph Honkola, Bob Honkola and Tony Frank. Drs. Ralph and Bob Honkola retired in 2011, at which time Dr. Tony and I purchased A Lifetime of Smiles.

Taking up to 50 hours of continuing education each year allows me to provide my patients with the highest level of dental care available. I realize that dental needs are as unique as each patientís individual smile. I have always enjoyed working with my hands and working with people. Dentistry allows me to do both of these daily.

Thank you for your interest in our practice. The staff, Dr. Tony, and I look forward to meeting you.

Each member of the team at A Lifetime of Smiles works diligently day-in and day-out to provide each patient with great dental care. We’re a family-oriented practice with strong family values, and we’d welcome the opportunity to serve your family.

There’s something for everyone at our office. From routine cleanings, to professional teeth whitening, to complete denture and dental implant care, we offer the treatment you need! No more searching all over town to find care that’s tailored to the diverse needs of your family!

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Patient Education

At A Lifetime of Smiles Family Dentistry in Bismarck, ND, we provide patient education to every patientWe want you to leave our office feeling a bit more knowledgeable about your oral health, and a lot more confident in your ability to maintain a healthy smile. We accomplish this by talking with you about the condition of your teeth and gums, and by thoroughly discussing your treatment options so that you’re empowered to make informed decisions. We take the time to listen as well, and we won’t pressure you into treatments you don’t want or need. Instead, we’ll work with you to identify a treatment plan that fits your circumstances, your schedule, and your budget.

Kid-Friendly Dentistry

A Lifetime of Smiles is a Kid-Friendly Dentistry in Bismarck ND

We love to treat kids at A Lifetime of Smiles. We know that children who have positive experiences with the dentist are more likely to develop good oral health habits that will carry over into adolescence and adulthood. Dr. Frank, Dr. Hoerner, and our entire staff are great with kids.

Because kids are often nervous about a trip to the dentist, we always treat them with sensitivity. Our gentle, personable approach will help your child feel relaxed in our office. We especially enjoy teaching children about the importance of good oral hygiene, and we make it fun! At the conclusion of his or her visit, your child will even receive a free prize! Please call today to schedule your child’s appointment.

We’re excited to get to know your family!
