Meet Dr. Henegar
Dentistry has been a lifelong passion for dentist Dr. Asher Henegar. As a boy, he can remember learning about all the different materials of the trade as his father, a dental ceramist and craftsman, artfully created dental tools. Encouraged to find joy in creating things with his hands, as well as develop an appreciation for compassion and care, Asher Henegar found his calling in dentistry. Dr. Henegar earned his undergraduate degree from Texas A&M University in College Station and went on to graduate from dental school at the University of Southern California. The next six years were spent in Irving, TX where Dr. Henegar practiced dentistry before moving to Colorado Springs, CO. Colorado Springs has been his home ever since, and he loves providing care for his fellow community members.
Dr. Asher Henegar is proud to be a member of the following societies:
- American Dental Association
- Colorado Dental Association
- Academy of General Dentistry
- American Academy of Cosmetic Dentist

Outside of the Office

He and his wife operate a small ranch where they provide custom beef to customers. His wife, Amanda, works as a horsewoman and maintains their chicken flock. He values working with his hands, a trait he learned from his father in his youth. Dr. Henegar and his family enjoy spending time out in the community and involving themselves in things, like the local craft fair circuit and volunteering when they can.
"Dr. Henegar is truly a rare gem in the dental field!! I can’t fully express in words what a wonderful experience it was to be treated by him and his staff. Dr. Henegar is just the kind of dentist you are looking for! He is kind, caring, gentle and treats you like you really MATTER. I was away from home on vacation and he went above and beyond to see and treat me during a dental emergency. His expertise and excellence in dentistry made it an amazing experience from start to finish. I have to also commend his front office manager and his dental hygienist...both of whom were equally excellent to work with! They showed kindness, caring and true empathy. Top to bottom, the best dental experience I’ve ever had! If you are searching for a dentist, or need a change for the better - - search no more! Dr. Henegar is your guy."

"Great experience and awesome dentist. I was having some pain but my previous dentist was not able to see me. Dr. Henegar was able to schedule a new patient appointment right away. He even looked over my insurance and confirmed my appointment. Pretty amazed. Dr. Henegar went over my x-rays and addressed my concerns and explained in detail my pending treatment. I felt at ease and comfortable while being seen. I will be briging my family in and recommending my friends. Love the quality of care! Highly recommend! 😊"
