Meet Dr. John Kanyusik

John Kanyusik, DDS, MSD

I have been practicing orthodontics in the Mankato area since 1975. I am currently a clinical assistant professor of orthodontics at the University of Minnesota and teach orthodontics worldwide with Health Volunteers Overseas. I have served as president of the Minnesota Association of Orthodontists and the College of Diplomates of the American Board of Orthodontics. I am passionate about orthodontics and teaching, and I look forward to meeting you.

Education

I completed my undergraduate education and Doctorate of Dental Surgery at the University of Minnesota, where I was elected to the Omicron Kappa Upsilon Honorary Dental Society. I completed my orthodontic residency and Master of Science at the University of Minnesota as well. Following residency, I was stationed in Tachikawa, Japan, where I served as an orthodontist with the United States Air Force.

Professional Associations

My commitment to orthodontics extends beyond Mankato. I have served as president of the Minnesota Association of Orthodontists, president of the Midwestern Society of Orthodontists, and president of the College of Diplomates of the American Board of Orthodontists.

At Home

My wife Carolyn and I have four adult children: Anne, Kate, Chris, and Ben. I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, and being active. Carolyn and I enjoy living in the Mankato area and all that it has to offer. 

I have served on the United Way board, the Mankato Area Foundation board, the YMCA board, the Red Jacket Trail task force, the Mission of Mercy to provide dental care, and our parish council.
