Why relocate to Bullhead City, AZ?
Both dentists were attracted to the small town feel, water sports, hiking, off-road trails and of course, Bullhead’s warm weather!
They also saw a need for dentist in the area. Their original location was a small building next store to 1093 Hancock Rd.Bullhead City. Jennings & Larson’s staff count was “one” in 1989, and ALL duties were shared, including custodial at the end of a busy day as they built their new business. Today, that number is approximately 50 plus, including all 4 locations, Bullhead, Kingman,Fort Mohave & Prescott, AZ.
Fast forward to 2011, debt free, and enjoying the fruits of their labor, the very large location next door at 1093 Hancock was for sale, and about to be auctioned off. Their first instinct was to ignore it, and stay small, but after a concerned wife’s statement, “Okay, don’t buy it, but your going to regret it!” they found themselves bidding and buying the location. Dr. Thadd & Dr. Kirk have never looked back, as they welcomed their family members into their business, and created great dental careers through Jennings & Larson, this company is truly the epitome of “Family Dentistry”.
As of December 2019 Jennings & Larson Family Dentistry has one of the largest practices in the Tri-State Area, and just recently opened in Prescott, AZ.
