Improving Lives, One Person at a Time
As a dentist, I am able to improve each patient’s quality of life. That could mean getting them out of pain by treating a sensitive tooth or providing relief from a horrible toothache. It could be ending terrible headaches or joint pain.
I love being able to improve a patient’s ability to chew, by restoring or replacing missing teeth so they can eat the foods they love. And I get a thrill out of giving a patient a beautiful smile when they’ve been self-conscious about their teeth for years.
I love what I do and feel blessed to be able to do something I enjoy so much – every day!
I’ve practiced dentistry for more than 25 years. Growing up, my family dentist – Dr. Bob Matlock – was kind enough to talk with me about dentistry and allowed me to observe him at work. After dental school, I worked for Dr. Matlock for nearly four years and still consider him a good friend and mentor.
One of the most amazing things about dentistry is the relationships that grow with patients. I really enjoy hearing their stories and getting to know them and their families. I love the fact that most of them feel like friends after just a short time.
Dr. Keisner and our team set the tone for our practice. They share my passion for quality dentistry and excellent customer service. Each genuinely cares about our patients’ wellbeing and happiness, and treats everyone with kindness.

Continuing education is extremely important to me. I believe that staying current with today’s research, procedures, and technology allows me to offer the very best treatment options to my patients. Because of this, I exceed the requirement of course hours for licensure every year.
I enjoy learning new techniques to help me better serve my patients. I’ve trained through the Dawson Academy, Las Vegas Institute, American Orthodontic Society, American Dental Association, and studied Invisalign® through Align Technology. I’ve also completed courses through Nobel Biocare on dental implants and the University of Tennessee Health Sciences and Myotronics on neuromuscular dentistry, to name but a few.
Additionally, I’m a past member of the Seattle Study Club and an active member of the Spear Study Club.
Beyond the Practice
I lived in the suburbs of Detroit, MI, until I was 14 years old and we moved to Rogers, AR. I’ve spent the last 20 or so years in Little Flock with my family.
My wife Lori and I have been married for more than 30 years. We have three sons. Tyler is a graphic designer. He and his wife, Hannah, have a son, Zeke: Lori and I are thrilled to be new grandparents!
Our middle son, Colton, is attending dental school at the University of Tennessee and plans to join me in the practice when he graduates. Garrett, our youngest son, is studying earth science at the University of Arkansas. Our family is rounded out by our Labradoodle, Rigby.
I love to be outdoors and really enjoy hiking, fishing, and floating the rivers on my kayak. I also like to travel and see new places, but always love to come home. I also enjoy attending and watching Razorback sporting events (Woo Pig) and am a diehard Detroit Tigers fan. I collect sports memorabilia and enjoy collecting and shooting hand guns and rifles.
Giving back and helping others is important to me. I’m an active member of Southside Church of Christ in Rogers and volunteer in the community through the church. I’m a Life Group leader and our Life Group is involved in several ongoing service projects that improve our community and the lives of friends and neighbors.
