Charles Kendall, DDS
Dr. Charles R. Kendall grew up in the Chattanooga, TN area. He moved to the Midwest in his early 20s when he met and later married his wife, Mary. Prior to his endodontic profession, Charlie worked for his church in youth ministries, coordinating international mission trips for high school and college students. His experiences and travels fueled his passion for helping people and relieving suffering. The field of dentistry attracted him as a very tangible way to make a difference in the lives of hurting people. After many hours shadowing the dentist in the practice where his wife, Mary, worked as a dental hygienist, Charlie was inspired to go back to school to become a dentist.
Dr. Kendall completed his prerequisite classes for dental school at the University of Missouri in Columbia. He then attended the University of Missouri School of Dentistry in Kansas City, graduating summa cum laude (#2 in his class), and immediately began a 2-year endodontic residency at the UMKC School of Dentistry. After completing his residency and then working as an associate in an endodontic practice, he and Mary set out to open their own practice in Lenexa. Their dream was to have a place that would be known for exceptional customer service, uncompromising integrity, and the highest possible standards of care.
