Dr. Audrey Greaves is so excited to join Dr. Johnson-G’Sell and the Magnolia family. Dr. Johnson-G’Sell and Dr. Greaves have been close friends since their college days and have dreamed of working together for several years. The dream has finally come true! Dr. Greaves has found that the Magnolia team is a perfect fit for her, and she has loved getting to know her new patients.
Since the age of 11, Dr. Greaves dreamed of becoming a dentist and is thankful to be in a career she genuinely loves. Dr. Greaves approaches her work with passion and enthusiasm. She emphasizes getting the patients involved in their own care. When a patient is faced with multiple treatment options, she takes the time to explain the obstacle and presents all viable solutions so the best decision can be made for each individual. She finds that the process is smoother and end result is better when everyone is on the same page. She takes the time to sit down and answer any questions or calm any fears the patient might have before beginning treatment. It’s easy to feel anxious or vulnerable lying back in the dental chair, but Dr. Greaves really understands and works hard to make the process comfortable for everyone.
Dr. Greaves grew up in Kansas City, attended Truman State University for her undergraduate degree, and received her doctorate in dental surgery from UMKC School of Dentistry. After graduating from dental school, she and her husband lived in Minneapolis, MN for a few years before settling back in Missouri for good. She enjoys reading, crafting, and getting outside whenever possible. She likes cheering for the Blues and Cardinals, and although she hasn’t come around to Provel cheese yet, her husband sneaks it in her food and she never complains.
