Our Dental Team 2015-07-06T22:23:43+00:00


I am deeply passionate about dentistry and take pride in providing my patients with the best possible treatment. I enjoy having the opportunity to improve people’s lives, whether I am restoring a person’s smile or relieving them of pain. I truly care about each individual patient at my office and want them to enjoy their time with us.

All of my team members have many years of experience in making our patients healthy and happy. They know our family of patients very well and have great relationships with them. They all really care for our patients and take great pride in providing quality care in a relaxed environment.


I feel that, because of my formal training and residency, I am able to provide services that give my patients optimal oral health and beautiful smiles to match. I completed my undergraduate studies at Fort Hays State University and earned my Doctorate of Dental Surgery at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in 2007. I attended the University of Missouri, Kansas City, for an Advanced Education in General Dentistry, graduating in 2010. This residency, which I was accepted into after two years of private practice, focused heavily on implant and reconstructive dentistry.

I was born and raised in Hill City, a small town in Western Kansas, and currently live in Kansas City, MO. My family is very important to me. My dad has been a high school teacher and coach for 44 years now. He and my uncle also run the family farm. My parents still live in Hill City, and my brother lives in Kansas City and is a middle school teacher at Wellsville Junior High School.

I played basketball in college for four years, and I still love being involved with sports. I play basketball, softball, and tennis on a regular basis. I enjoy hanging out with family and friends and dining at the many great restaurants that Kansas City has to offer. I also enjoy traveling and catching up with my friends across the country.

Kellie – Registered Dental Hygienist

I assist patients in improving and maintaining their oral health. My mission is to promote the best oral health possible and facilitate patients in achieving healthy goals. I started my career in dentistry in 1996 and joined Dr. Riley’s team in 2008. I enjoy working in this peaceful, friendly environment where I can build relationships with the patients I meet. I have three children, with three very different personalities, that fill my days with delight and laughter. We look forward to the joys each day brings.



Cherie – Registered Dental Hygienist

I am responsible for many aspects of improving and maintaining our patients’ oral health through regular cleanings, checkups, and education. I recently joined Dr.Riley’s team but began my dental career in 1997. I have truly enjoyed getting to know our family of patients and building relationships with them. Dr. Riley is a wonderful, professional doctor who has amazing knowledge to share and a great chairside manner to calm anxious patients. In my spare time I enjoy running, hiking, wakeboarding, reading, and spending time with my husband and step-son.
