Dr. Anisha Patel is from Shawnee, Kansas. She is a graduate of Shawnee Mission Northwest, where she was selected as a national merit scholar and opted to attend the University of Kansas. She received her Bachelor of Science degree in chemical engineering from KU and received her Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University of Missouri-Kansas City in 2015, graduating summa cum laude.
Dr. Patel completed an Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) at the Wichita State AEGD in Wichita, Kansas, where she learned from several amazing mentors. She spent a year expanding her skill set and learning how to handle complex cases, including full-mouth rehabilitations, root canals, and implant planning and placement. She is a member of the American Dental Association, the Kansas Dental Association and the Academy of General Dentistry.
Dr. Patel is very family-oriented and enjoys spending her free time with her fiancé. She loves dogs, yoga and CrossFit, and she takes every day as an opportunity to become a better professional and a better person.
Dr. Mark Jensen graduated with a bachelor’s degree in biology from the University of Kansas in 1984. He then continued on to the University of Missouri at the Kansas City School of Dentistry, where he earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree with distinction in 1988. Following graduation, Dr. Jensen completed a three-year general practice residency with the United States Navy Dental Corps. During this rewarding and challenging time, he worked primarily with Marines in the First Gulf War. He learned many of the skills he now uses every day by working with some of the finest clinicians anywhere.
After completing his residency, Dr. Jensen moved back to Kansas City, his hometown. In 1992, he purchased this practice from a retiring doctor and developed the theme of “Together, Dental Health for Life.” While Dr. Jensen has practiced dentistry in the area for more than 20 years (and his practice has grown tremendously), he has never lost sight of what has led to every success he has had: caring for his patients as best as possible.
Dr. Jensen has extensive training in several areas of dental care, including cosmetic dentistry and oral surgery. He also continues his education in dentistry on a regular basis, maintaining all of the required continuing education for accreditation with the State of Kansas Dental Board. In addition, Dr. Jensen is a member of the American Dental Association, Kansas Dental Association and Fifth District Dental Society of the State of Kansas. Furthermore, his practice is accredited by the Better Business Bureau of Greater Kansas City.
