I decided to become a dentist because I loved the medical fields, and I chose dentistry out of it because I loved, when I was a child, going to the dentist. I loved the look of the place, and I loved the wonderful way that my dentist and his assistants worked, and so I just had great experiences as a child. The most rewarding part of being a dentist, for me, is taking people who are scared to come to the dentist and showing them that it can be a great experience and that not only can you get your teeth fixed and your mouth healthy, but it doesn't have to be painful or be something that you have to dread. I love turning those patients into people that look forward to coming to see us and that had a lot of patients that used to be super scared of coming to the dentist and say, "I hate the dentist." They now love to come to the dentist, and they're relaxed and they kind of even enjoy the experience.
Great dental experiences as a child led Dr. Casey Jones to choose dentistry as her career. Later on, after only three years at Missouri State University, she received early admission to the University of Missouri – Kansas City School of Dentistry.
Dr. Casey has now helped patients smile brightly for over 30 years. She uses humor to create a relaxed atmosphere that helps ease our patients’ anxiety. The best part of her job is actually seeing her patients overcome their fears.
Dr. Casey is a member of the Roy J. Rinehart Memorial Foundation and previously served as a member of the Board of Trustees at the UMKC School of Dentistry.
Outside of the office, Dr. Casey enjoys playing tennis, square dancing, and spending time at the lake. Since 2001, she has also taken part in several medical/dental mission trips to Senegal in west Africa.
