Dr. Anne Tampke says her calling as a dentist is not only to diagnose and treat oral disease, but to help people feel like the best version of themselves. "The best part of my job is boosting patients' confidence by improving their oral health!" she says.
Dr. Tampke grew up in Leawood, Kansas, and currently lives in Kansas City, Missouri. She earned her degree in Human Biology from the University of Kansas, and achieved her DDS at Creighton University. She says she loves working at Ridgeview Family Dentistry because it allows her to serve the greater KC community and show patients that the dentist's office isn't a scary place to be. "I like always being part of the solution!"
When she's not helping her patients improve their smiles, Dr. Tampke can be found enjoying the company of her West Highland terrier, Gigi, playing tennis, going to the farmers market, and cooking a good meal. She said if she could have a year off to do anything or go anywhere, she'd travel to Scotland to go hiking with her dog.
