Meet the Doctor
Dr. Mary Hoch
Dr. Mary Hoch hails from Harlan, Iowa, where she grew up on her family’s farm. She graduated as valedictorian from Harlan Community High School in 2010. She then completed her undergraduate degree in three years at The University of Missouri, where she graduated summa cum laude before attending the University of Iowa College of Dentistry.
Mary was drawn to dentistry because of the lasting relationship that can be formed with patients and the ability to make a difference in people’s lives. The Iowa Dental Association awarded her with one of just two merit-based scholarships based on her academic achievements, volunteerism, and commitment to the state of Iowa.
She is married to her high school sweetheart, Matt Hoch. Matt is currently teaching science and coaching football at Estherville Lincoln Central. Together they spoil their toddler daughter Hazel, who lights up their world. Mary enjoys running her own wedding videography business and eating way more candy than a dentist should in her free time.
