What do actor Aaron Paul, Sarah Palin, Ernest Hemingway, Dentist Anesthesiologist Jeremy Bonander, and potatoes all have in common? You guessed it! They are all from Idaho! Jeremy was actually born in Casper, Wyoming in 1983, but his family moved to Idaho when he was young and he considers Idaho home. Jeremy is the middle child of three. His dad managed a plumbing wholesale company and his mom was a dental assistant. Jeremy recalls visiting her at work as a major influence in sparking his interest in dentistry.
Loves the Outdoors
Jeremy loves the outdoors! Much of his time growing up was spent water skiing, wake boarding, snow skiing, rock climbing, backpacking, and just about any other outdoorsy thing he could find to do. Some of the highlights Jeremy states were the many white water kayaking trips he took down the Snake and Salmon rivers. This is one of the reasons why growing up in the northwest was so perfect for him.
Nose to the Grindstone
Jeremy attended high school in Twin Falls, Idaho. From there he continued nonstop through his education to become a dentist anesthesiologist. He first attended the College of Southern Idaho for two years and then on to Boise State University where he received his Bachelor’s Degree in Chemistry. After graduation he went directly into dental school at the University of California – San Francisco. Jeremy did his general dentistry residency at UNLV in Las Vegas and from there went directly into his residency for Dental Anesthesia at Lutheran Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY.
Meeting Dr. Caputo and Relocating to Tucson
Jeremy met Dr. Caputo during his residency with Lutheran Medical. In fact, Jeremy did one of his 3-month rotations at Southwest Dental Anesthesia and really enjoyed working with Dr. Caputo, Dr. Sikora and Dr. Chauhan. The fit was so good in fact, Dr. Bonander was hired to join SWDA immediately after completing his residency. Jeremy has come to love Arizona and finds that his love for the outdoors will be richly fulfilled by a whole new set of experiences just waiting for him to explore.
