“Dr. Dunn has been instrumental in increasing the medical student and resident education and support by our physicians in our practice and at the hospital,” says Cathryn Kaiser, MD, Retired Assistant Medical Director of Quality Improvement for St. Mary’s/Dean Ventures, Inc. “His enthusiasm for this endeavor has been contagious and has drawn in his partners.”

Outside of Dr. Dunn’s clinical and teaching work at Dean Clinic – Mineral Point, Dean  Clinic – Dodgeville and Upland Hills Health Hospital, he also gives of his time to the community. Dr. Dunn is the founder and medical director of Community Connections Free Clinic which serves the uninsured in Iowa County.
