Dr. Kenneth Hauser was born and raised in the north suburbs of Chicago. After graduating from New Trier High School, Dr. Hauser pursued his Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree in General Sciences, with a minor in secondary education mathematics, from the University of Denver. Four years later, the University of Minnesota awarded him two degrees: a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in Health Science and a Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree.
Dr. Hauser further enhanced his knowledge of the various fields in dentistry at Emory University in Atlanta, where he received a Certificate in Advanced Education in General Dentistry. Upon returning to Chicago, he went into private practice for a year. Northwestern University offered him a two year fellowship in Hospital Dentistry. It was there he gained valuable clinical experience in general and hospital dentistry at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, Chicago under the leadership of Dr. Peter Hurst.
After his training at Northwestern, Dr. Hauser began specializing in orthodontics at Columbia University School of Dental and Oral Surgery in New York City, a move that proved invaluable. In 1994, the faculty conferred on him a Master of Arts Degree in Dental Science and a Certificate of Specialization in Orthodontics. His master's thesis was original research titled "A pilot study of synovial fluid composition from the inflamed human temporomandibular joint."
Dr. Hauser is committed to providing the best quality orthodontics to his patients. He regularly attends continuing education seminars and conferences to stay current of the latest in orthodontic treatment, including Invisalign, the Damon System and temporary anchorage devices.
