Meet the Team

We have a small, close-knit team and many of us have worked together for years. We consider one another to be family and that feeling extends to each person we are privileged to see.

Everyone on our team has a lot of dental experience and really knows their stuff. All of us are problem solvers, too, and want to make your visits worry-free, productive, and pleasant.

We hope that when you finish a visit you feel you’ve spent quality time with friends and walk out the door with a brighter, healthier, and happier smile!

Brenda

Brenda Black

Registered Dental Hygienist

As a hygienist, I greet patients and bring them to the back office for their hygiene appointments. I take X-rays, complete oral health assessments, and provide thorough and gentle teeth cleanings. As I’m working with a patient, I educate them about oral health and their specific areas of concern. By explaining how oral health affects the body, and providing practical guidance and encouragement, I help patients develop better dental health habits.

I’m originally from Arizona and have lived in Kansas City for over 25 years. I have raised two great children here and they are both doing well and are successful in their own lives. I’m not an empty nester, though, as I have several dogs who keep me company. I like many different types of crafts and love to travel when time allows.

Cheryl Wright

Front Office Coordinator

I greet patients, on the phone and when they come for visits, and work to ensure we are ready to provide the highest-quality service. I open and prepare the office, set and maintain the schedule, and handle recalls and confirming appointments. I also oversee monthly billing and collections; confirm insurance terms, eligibility, submit claims, and handle follow-up; and manage our in-office insurance plan. I love working with the public and treasure working alongside a team and for a doctor who delivers excellent service in a pleasant environment.

My husband Terry and I have been together for over 45 years. We have been blessed with three wonderful daughters and ten amazing grandchildren, including two sets of twin girls! Terry and I live in Dearborn on four acres in the country with our black lab, Minnie. Outside of work, I enjoy many things: swimming, beaches, theme parks, trips to Branson and Silver Dollar City with the grandkids, and watching the Chiefs play football. I also love gardening and canning, cooking big family dinners, spending time with friends and family, and attending the grandkids’ many school activities and games. A yearly vacation to Mexico is always nice, too!

Barbara Koetting

Front Desk Receptionist

Working at our front desk, I greet and assist patients, answer the phones, and set up appointments. I also check patients out at the end of their visit, process payments, and discuss financial options. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Dental Hygiene and am always happy to answer questions about treatments, too. Getting to know patients, and helping them achieve and maintain great oral health so they have a great quality of life, is rewarding! Dr. Weimer and my coworkers all feel the same way, which makes for a wonderful environment for the staff and our patients.

I am originally from St. Louis and my husband of more than 25 years is from Kansas City. I went to college here in Kansas City and love that we have raised our two young adult daughters in the community. In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, walking, yoga, and, most of all, spending time with friends and family, especially our daughters.

Terra Cogan

Expanded Functions Dental Assistant

Working in our clinic, I set up and break down rooms for dental procedures and handle sterilization. I also seat and prepare patients to see Dr. Weimer, making sure they are comfortable in the chair and understand what we’ll be doing. In addition to assisting Dr. Weimer with procedures, I have my expanded functions certifications. This allows me to do some fillings, take impressions and then adjust and seat permanent crowns, and make temporary crowns. I like working so closely with our patients and meeting new people. It’s enjoyable to help people smile with confidence! Dr. Weimer provides great dentistry and really cares about each patient as a person. That’s true of each of my coworkers, too: we all help each other out so we’re able to provide the best experience for our patients.

Family keeps me active outside of work. I have three children: son Kane and twin daughters, Rya and Raven. We also have a dog and a cat, so our home is busy! I spend most of my time at the kids’ sporting events or running them around, but make time to be with friends and to enjoy the outdoors. My favorite thing is attending concerts, but, really, I love anything that has to do with music.
