Meet Dr. Robert E. Menees
Dr. Robert E. Menees, or as his patients call him Dr. Bob, began practicing dentistry with his father, Robert E. Menees Sr., on the Country Club Plaza after graduating from UMKC School of Dentistry in 1968. In 1971 he acquired his father's dental practice and moved it to Fairway, Kansas where he had a successful cosmetic and family dental practice for 43 years.
Dr. Bob is proud that his daughter, Dr. Laura, has now acquired his practice and kept the Menees practice in the family for three generations of dentists. He is still involved with the practice and consults on patients and mentors the team.

A life-long resident of Kansas City, she is married with 2 children and 2 grandchildren.
Tiffany has been in the field for over 12 years and is extremely passionate about what she does. When she started in her field, her focus was chair-side. Since then, she has moved to the front desk. She has completed several continuing education courses and her cross training has provided her with a unique skill set.
She is a proud mom of two boys who keep her very busy with sports, school, and musical instruments. In her spare time, she enjoys being with her sons, cooking, and doing Pinterest crafts.
Jenifer "Jenna" actually started her dental assisting career with Dr. Bob many years ago. After moving away and raising a family of four children, she is back working for Menees Family Dentistry again. She has over 20 years experience in dentistry and is very excited to continue caring for our patients. And because Jenna goes above and beyond to help us provide high quality, gentle care, we are thrilled to have her back.
