Cherise Philippi

Dental Hygienist

I am a graduate of Southern Illinois University Carbondale with a Bachelor of Science degree in Dental Hygiene. I am a Registered Dental Hygienist with certification in local anesthesia and nitrous oxide administration. I have been in practice for 14 years.

I enjoy working with people to help them understand the importance of oral hygiene and the role it plays in their overall health. As a hygienist, I take pride in educating and treating each patient based on their individual needs. The warm and friendly staff and up-to-date technology makes this a wonderful office to work for and receive dental care.

In my free time, I love spending time with my husband and two sons, working out, and running with my Jack Russell terrier.


Lynley Rowe

Lynley graduated from The University of Kansas, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in Journalism and Mass Communications. She spent 10 years in the advertising industry, during which she worked at many of the top local advertising agencies in the Kansas City metropolitan area.
