Meet Dr. Hoge

Dr. Michael Hoge, DMD, MS is a board certified specialist in periodontics and dental implant surgery with 11 years of experience. After living in 5 different states while gaining education and experience, he couldn’t be happier to bring his family back home to the great state of Wisconsin. It is with great humility and gratitude that he accepts the responsibility of carrying on the legacy of the practice of Dr. H. William Hoge, DDS, MS.

After completing his undergraduate studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, he worked for several years as a Head Start family outreach worker, Spanish medical interpreter and even a snowboard instructor in Colorado. It was during this varied work experience that he decided that dentistry would be a career that would combine his interests of art, science and service.

At that point, he committed to pursuing dental school at Boston University’s Goldman School of Dental Medicine in Boston, MA. While at BU, he participated in research investigating correlations between oral health and general health, which spurred his interest in the field of periodontology. Also during this time, he received a health professions scholarship with the United States Air Force and commissioned as a Captain upon graduation in 2007.

While on active duty with the Air Force, he completed a one-year residency in general dentistry at the United States Air Force Academy and a three-year residency in Periodontics and Implant Dentistry at Wilford Hall Medical Center and the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. Upon graduation, he was selected to be an instructor of periodontics at and earned the designation of Chief of Periodontics at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling, Washington, D.C.

Before returning home to Wisconsin, Dr. Hoge spent a year in full-time private practice at Precision Periodontics and Implant Dentistry in Alexandria, VA where he gained experience and certification in laser surgery and minimally invasive gum grafting procedures. When not practicing in Sheboygan, Dr. Hoge also practices at Burke Periodontics and Implant Dentistry in Mequon, WI. He is also an adjunct assistant professor of Surgical Sciences at Marquette University School of Dentistry. He continues his military service as Chief of Dental Services for the 113th Fighter Wing, Washington D.C. Air National Guard.

Dr. Hoge is passionate about his profession and feels strongly about the importance of lifelong learning. He enjoys finding innovative ways to make treatments more successful and more comfortable for patients and fostering a spirit of collaboration amongst colleagues. In his spare time, Dr. Hoge enjoys live music and sports. He lives with his wife Taylor, their three sons and two dogs.
