Hello, I’m Dr. Max Meinerz

I grew up in dentistry, with my mom owning her own practice for over 40 years. I saw first hand the importance of patient care and why putting the patient first is key to developing trust and strong relationships. I pride myself on my friendships with patients and colleagues and find that relationship-building is the most enjoyable part of my job.

As a graduate from the Marquette’s School of Dentistry, I have always had a vision to take my passion for patient care to practices throughout my hometown of Milwaukee and surrounding areas. 

I truly enjoy figuring out the best path to patient care and reducing the operational headaches faced by emerging and existing dental practices. In the face of an ever growing Corporate Dentistry model, I have established Ascendent Health Partners with the purpose of maintaining a thriving private practice option for people-connectors and healers who allow us to help care for their business.

If you have a passion for patient care I’d love to Have you join me on my journey!
