About Us

Dr. Kyle Gernhofer – CEO

Dr. Gernhofer has been a dentist for 15 years, and he’s treated thousands of patients while working alongside many providers. While in private practice, Dr. Gernhofer met many patients who had been treated by previous clinicians, and he observed how dental providers vary significantly in terms of their delivery of dental treatment. Dr. Gernhofer left his private practice to create DenScore when he realized that he could help address this problem by using his patient care experience to build technology to ensure patients have access to higher quality dental care. 

Dr. Gernhofer graduated from the University of Michigan School of Dentistry in 2005. After fulfilling his service as a Naval dental officer, Dr. Gernhofer treated the San Diego community for ten years at Mission Boulevard Dental Group. While in the Navy, he received the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal (COMM) and Navy Achievement Medal (NAM) for his leadership and clinical performance while serving as a dental officer aboard the USS TORTUGA (LSD-46) and Marine Corps Recruiting Depot (MCRD) respectively. As a private practice dentist, Dr. Gernhofer was consistently recognized as one of San Diego’s top dentists by his patients and peers.
