      Dr. Caleb Gardner, a Northland native, joined the practice in 2008. He graduated from Oak Park High School in 1999.  He then went on to the University of Missouri-Columbia to get his Bachelor's degree in Interdisciplinary studies (Biology, Chemistry, and Art).  After graduating with high honors, he spent the next four years at UMKC School of Dentistry.  In 2007, he obtained his Doctorate in Dental Surgery and again graduated with high honors.  After completing dental school, Dr. Gardner wanted to expand his dental knowledge and hone his skills before beginning work in a private practice.  With this intent, he spent the next year acquiring his certificate in Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency at the UMKC School of Dentistry.  When speaking about his residency Dr. Gardner says, "It was one of the best decisions I've made.  It has made me a better dentist, and I feel that I'm better able to treat complex dental cases."  Dr. Evers and Dr. Gardner both share a philosophy that includes high values on compassion, customer service and patient education.
