OUR DOCTORS
DR. DAVID CHRISTENSEN DMD, MS
Orthodontic Specialist

It all started when the Midwest winds blew the stork off course from Hawaii to deliver me to a hospital in Oklahoma City, OK. Since that time, I have called many places home. Raised under the bright lights of the Las Vegas strip by loving parents, I enjoyed spending time with my 6 brothers, playing high school sports, and exploring the great outdoors. During college, I spent the summers working cattle, mending fences, and fishing for catfish on my family’s farm outside of Cameron in Northwestern MO, and the rest of the year I had my nose in the books. While in college I met the girl of my dreams, Jada, a beautiful “southern belle” from Charleston, SC. Meanwhile, I also managed to get a Bachelors degree in Animal Science. I then attended dental school at the Medical University of South Carolina and graduated 4 years later in the top of the class with honors. I was invited to membership in OKU, the National Dental Honor Society. I then spent 2 additional years at Marquette University in “Packer” country acquiring a Masters degree and a certificate in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics.  As lady luck would have it, the Midwest winds began to blow again and they led me to build a successful practice with in Kansas City, Missouri. Myself, my wife Jada, and my 4 sweet children absolutely love it out here on the frontier close to family, friends, and the farm!

DR. ANNA McKee DDS
Pediatric Dental Specialist

Dr. Anna Mckee may have been born a Georgia peach but she is proud to have spent nearly all of her formative years in Liberty, Missouri! During her time in Liberty she was involved with many high school activities but dance often took ‘center stage’ as she was a competitive dancer at both a local studio and for the Liberty High school Sapphires. She was a member of the first state championship Liberty Sapphire team, winning back-to-back championship titles in 2009 and 2010. After graduating high school she attended Northwest Missouri State University and graduated with honors as a pre-professional zoology major. At Northwest Missouri State University she continued to be involved with dance as a Bearcat Stepper and developed into a self-proclaimed Bearcat super-fan. She knew she wanted to be a dentist from an early age and was pleased to continue her education at the University of Missouri-Kansas City Dental School. At UMKC she discovered her love for treating children and decided to pursue a highly sought after pediatric residency. She joined Children’s Mercy Hospitals and Clinics for her residency training and got to stay in her favorite city! She is engaged to be married in the fall and is excited to start her family with her fiancé Sean and their miniature golden doodle Buckets.
