About Our Dentist in Bismarck, ND

At A Lifetime of Smiles Dentures & Implants, our entire team is committed to providing you with exceptional restorative dental care that leaves you with a full, confident smile. We are a dedicated group of dental professionals who listen to your concerns, work with you to find the best tooth replacement option for your needs, and always treat you like family.

When you visit our dental practice, you’ll quickly see that we are here to empower you with information and recommendations about the best way to reclaim your smile. We never pressure you into getting a certain treatment. Instead, we sit down with you to have a discussion about both dentures and dental implants, as well as the pros and cons of each, so that you’ll be able to make a confident decision about what you’d like to do. We always have your best interests at heart!

Dr. Derik Hoerner grew up on a farm north of Richardton, North Dakota, about 70 miles west of Bismarck. He completed his undergraduate degree at North Dakota State University, and then he earned his dental degree at Creighton School of Dentistry. After dental school, he began his dental career at A Lifetime of Smiles, working with Dr. Ralph Honkola, Dr. Bob Honkola, and Dr. Tony Frank. In 2011 when Drs. Ralph and Bob Honkola retired, Dr. Hoerner purchased the practice.

In order to provide his patients with exceptional dental care, Dr. Hoerner takes up to 50 hours of continuing education every year. He has also taken hands-on courses for dentures to ensure that his patients receive a high standard of care, including completing a certification in complete dentures through Ivoclar Vivadent®.

When not helping patients, Dr. Hoerner likes to relax with his family, help out on the farm, and spend time with his girlfriend, Katie.
