Improving Lives with Personalized Dentistry
Oral health is a vital part of our overall health. As a dentist, I have the ability to educate patients about the relationship between dental health, bodily health, and quality of life. Communicating clearly, and in a manner that ensures patients understand the information, allows each person to make informed decisions about behaviors and dental treatment.
I’ve practiced dentistry for more than 35 years and during that time have met and become friends with many people. I appreciate the opportunity to care for families, seeing how they grow over the years, and sharing in their lives.
I was drawn to dentistry as a way of reaching people, helping each improve their health and enjoyment they find in life. I particularly enjoy the diversity in my days, how every patient comes in with different conditions, expectations, and challenges, which means I must personalize their care to give them the best treatment experience and results.

Throughout the year I participate in a range of continuing education, taking classroom courses, attending lectures, and participating in hands-on clinical procedures. I also keep up with the latest medical and dental journals.
There have been many changes in the field in the years since I graduated: the new technologies, techniques, and materials have revolutionized the practice of dentistry. It’s my responsibility – and passion – to stay current on advances that have proven to be effective.

Beyond the Practice
I grew up in Joplin, MO, and have lived in Bentonville, AR, for more than 30 years. I share my life with my wife, Angela. My son, Dr. David Keisner and his wife, Dr. Sidney Veach Keisner, have given us two grandchildren, Henry and Cameron.
Outside of the office, I take care of the grandchildren as often as possible. I love being involved in their development and education.
Over the years I have been involved in many community activities, from achieving Eagle Scout rank in 1968 to serving with the Bentonville Kiwanis Club, Poplar House Indigent Health Care Clinic, Boys and Girls Club, and many other local organizations.
