Deanna Hagler, DDS

I was born and raised on our family farm in the Devils Lake area, and am proud to be back serving my hometown community!  I completed my Zoology degree from North Dakota State University in 2012 and attended dental school at the University Of Colorado School Of Dental Medicine. I then finished a one year advanced education in general dentistry program at Idaho State University in 2018.

Dentistry has taught me so much already; it is my goal to never stop learning. I am honored to be a part of this great profession. I truly love to see how dentistry can change people’s lives.

In my spare time, I love to do anything outdoors and hanging out with my husband, Jacob Hagler. I enjoy hiking, skiing, running, camping and being at the lake with friends and family. Put me in a boat at the lake with a good book and I am in my happy place.
