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.

Office Manager

Becky is the first to welcome you when you walk into our office. With a positive attitude and enthusiasm for the dentistry we provide, she works to ensure that all patients receive the highest level of customer service possible. Becky has been in dentistry for over fourteen years.

One of her favorite things about her job is working with patients to answer sometimes difficult questions about insurance and financing to make treatment possible for the healthy and beautiful smile they deserve.

When not working, Becky and her husband enjoy cheering for the Chiefs and the Royals, looking for treasures at estate sales, gardening, traveling and most importantly spending time with family.


Dental Assistant

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.

Originally from St. Joe, MO, Jenna enjoys spending her free time with her family, helping her family business, donating her dental skills for charities, and is passionate about animals.
