Kyle Beulke, DDS
Dr. Kyle Beulke grew up in Nebraska before starting his education at Rockhurst University in Kansas City, where he completed his degree in Biochemistry. He returned to his husker roots where he received his dental degree from UNMC. After completing his degree, he continued his education in general dentistry and special needs from The Ohio State University. It was there he met his wife (Jenny) and established his friendship with Dr. Nick. Dr. Kyle continued his Big Ten education by attending University of Iowa for pediatric training and later became a board-certified pediatric dentist in 2017.
A father of three, Dr. Kyle understands the successes and struggles of raising children, especially when it comes to oral care. His favorite aspect of pediatric dentistry is getting to see all the different personalities children can possess, and having an excuse to watch the latest Disney movie. He takes pride in his compassion, patience, and empathy when working with young children, and is excited to bring his skill set back to Columbus.
