Dr. Garner was drawn to dentistry in his teenage years and at 14 years old set the goal to become a Dentist. Through his own dental experiences a desire was developed to help other people manage their oral care and become more educated about how their oral health effects their overall health. His approach to dentistry is one that is focused on combining the patient’s needs with their desires to get them back into a functionally healthier state than they were before.
The St. Louis native currently resides in the Lee’s Summit area with his wife and two young daughters. When not serving the community as a Dentist he spends his time enjoying his family. Dr. Garner is a sports fanatic especially football, but outside of sports he enjoys cooking, art and outreach activities.
