Dr. Henbest has been interested and active in dentistry for as long as he can remember. As an Arkansas native, he became interested in the dental field during his childhood, began working for his family dentist at the age of 13, and then worked as a dental lab technician throughout his college years. In 1981, he graduated with a Bachelor's of Science in Natural Science from the University of Arkansas and went on to earn his Doctor of Dental Surgery in 1985 from the University of Missouri Kansas City Dental School. Even at that early point in his career, The American Academy of General Dentistry awarded him recognition as the most outstanding senior; the American Academy of Periodontal Disease awarded his outstanding achievements in periodontics (the study of the tissues and structures surrounding the teeth); he also received distinction in the area of fixed prosthetics (crown and bridgework). Since then, he has focused his continuing education studies on the latest techniques and materials pertinent to both implant and cosmetic reconstructive dentistry. In practice, this training enables him to establish solid foundational bite mechanics in support of further cosmetic enhancements. Dr. Henbest has over 1,250 hours of continuing education, and has a special interest in advancements in cosmetic dentistry, dental implants, and full-mouth reconstruction. He truly loves using his knowledge and skills to change his patients' lives by improving their oral health, and the way they feel about their smile. Dr. Henbest has been happily married for over twenty years, and has a wonderful son and lovely daughter. When he isn't at the practice, Dr. Henbest is most likely heading to a car show, or making his monthly visit to the speedway in Oklahoma City!
