About Orthodontist Dr. Glenn
Upon completion of requirements of the University of Nebraska Medical Center, College of Dentistry, Dr. Robert Glenn received his Doctor of Dental Surgery (D.D.S.) degree in 1974. At that same time, he was also inducted into Omicron Kappa Upsilon dental honorary. After spending the following year in Boston, Massachusetts as a Senior Assistant Dental Surgeon with the United States Public Health Service, Dr. Glenn returned to Nebraska to pursue specialty training in orthodontics. Two years later, he received both a Certificate in Orthodontics and a Master of Science in Orthodontics degree from the University of Nebraska Medical Center.
“To be quite honest, I did not become an orthodontist as a result of a thoughtful, orderly decision making process. On the contrary, I just ended up in this profession, amazed that through little personal foresight, I find myself engaged in a career that I would not desire to trade with anyone.”
Dr. Glenn maintains an orthodontic teaching affiliation with University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Dentistry. Other professional affiliations include the American Association of Orthodontists, the Nebraska Society of Orthodontists, the Lincoln Orthodontic Society, and the Christian Medical and Dental Association. He is also a member of Faith Bible Church, actively participates at Lincoln Christian School, and mentors inmates at the Lancaster County Juvenile Detention Center.
For pure enjoyment, at the top of Dr. Glenn’s list is spending time with his family, Bible teaching, landscaping, and cooking on his new Traeger grill.
Dr. Glenn has been married to his college sweetheart, Mary Ellen, since 1973. Their wedding present from Mary Ellen’s mother was the “Grey Goose”, the ’38 Chevy coupe that is parked right outside the office most every day. The Glenns are blessed with two sons, a daughter, a daughter-in-law, a son-in-law, and seven perfectly wonderful grandchildren. Their oldest son and daughter-in-law have four daughters, and he is an oral surgeon here in Lincoln. Their youngest son has become the best golfer in the family and works in grounds maintenance here in Lincoln. He and his wife are excited to have their daughter, Dr. Katzberg, join the practice.
