We believe you should have a dentist that helps you feel comfortable, so you can manage to get the treatment you need.  

At Justin Garner Dentistry, we know that when you’re looking for a dentist, it’s ultimately because you want to be able to eat pain free and smile with confidence.   And in order to do that, you need to make sure you’re getting access to excellent dental care.  

The problem is, it can be hard if you don’t have a dentist you can trust to be honest about what you need, and give it to you straight about your treatment or the costs associated with it. 

We know many of our patients have felt hesitant to get dental care they need because they’ve worried about getting taken advantage of.

We believe you should be able to feel confident with a dentist who’ll be honest about your recommendations, won’t over-prescribe treatments, and who will take the time to listen or provide education about anything you’re unsure of.

We understand that being able to have a trusted partnership with your dentist will empower you to feel confident about taking care of your own dental health. This is why we take our patient relationships seriously, take the time to get to know our patients, and create a partnership that will guide you to feel confident with your smile throughout your life.

Meet Dr. Justin Garner

Born and raised in St. Louis, MO, Dr. Garner has been practicing dentistry in Kansas City  since 2008. His career is focused on getting patients back to a place where they can feel good about their smile and can live pain-free. 

Dr. Garner’s mission stems from a freak accident he had at age 14, which caused major damage to his teeth and mouth. Due to lack of immediate recovery and repair, this injury had an enormous impact on his life during those important high school years. 

From that year on, he knew that he wanted to save others from these setbacks, and help people regain their confidence, identity and self esteem by repairing their smiles and making sure they have the dental care they need.  


 He’s committed to walking you through short term problems and giving a a plan for lifelong dental care.

Dr. Justin Garner graduated with his DDS from the UMKC School of Dentistry. He continued his education at the University of Michigan during a residency. 

A proud family man, he is married with two daughters in the Blue Springs school district. He spends a great amount of time involved with his girls sports activities, and loves to sponsor and support their teams. They love to spend time together as a family, traveling, and sports.

After practicing with many esteemed dentists throughout Kansas City, Dr. Garner opened his own practice in 2022 in Independence, and is eager to continue to build life long relationships with his patients.
