Dr. Carole Gleich
Dr. Gleich is originally from Iowa and has been settling into the Kansas City area for the last two years.

Dr. Gleich is a strong believer in community involvement and a member of the Junior League of Kansas City.
In dental school, Dr. Gleich was one of the best, graduating near the top of her class in 2011. She was also elected to the Omicron Kappa Upsilon National Dental Honor Society, which pretty much means she’s awesome!
Mark S. Jensen, DDS
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.
