Meet Dr. Chamberlain
Dr. Chamberlain is a native Iowan who was born in The University of Iowa Hospital and swears he bleeds black and gold! His father was an Air Force surgeon, so he lived in many different places as a child. He attended four grade schools and 3 high schools, but kept his Iowa roots by working every summer at his grandparent’s farm in Muscatine, Iowa.
He attended Brigham Young University for three semesters prior to serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Peru, South America. After his mission he decided to attend Iowa State University. He went to the first Iowa State vs Iowa football game sporting a nice Cyclone T-shirt, but after 10 minutes of cheering for Iowa State, he realized he couldn’t do it and cheered for Iowa the rest of the game.
He attended the University Of Iowa College Of Dentistry 1987-1991. He received a direct commission into the United States Air Force and completed a General Practice residency at Wright-Patterson AFB in Dayton, Ohio in 1992. He became board certified in general dentistry after a 2 year Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency from 1995-1997 and then became board certified in Endodontics after an Endodontic residency program at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, Texas from 2006-2008.
He retired from the Air Force in 2015 as a Squadron Commander with the rank of Colonel. He served 24 years and was stationed in Ohio, Wyoming, Mississippi, Panama, Mississippi again, Texas, Japan and Virginia. His most memorable experience was being in Tokyo for the great earthquake and tsunami of 2011.
Dr. Chamberlain married his high school sweetheart, Karla, in 1984 and they have four married children and 8 grandchildren. He spends his free time riding his bicycle and most Saturdays, when the temperature is over 40o, he rides anywhere from forty to one hundred miles. If you want to join him on a long ride, just give him a call and be ready to ride at sunrise on Saturday morning!
