Dr. Christopher Lippold

Dentistry has always been part of Dr. Lippold’s world. From his early years, in Overland Park, KS playing in his mother’s dental office, to working as a dental assistant for 7 years in a Prosthodontist office in Prairie Village, KS, Dr. Lippold has grown up in the dental world. Those experiences not only provided him with a great deal of dental knowledge, but also fostered his desire to purse dentistry as his own career.

Dr. Lippold graduated from University of Missouri – Kansas City (UMKC), with a B.A. in Chemistry, then continued on to UMKC’s School of Dentistry to obtain his Doctorate in Dental Surgery. During his third year of dental school, his peers and professors could see first-hand his hard work and dedication to his course work and clinical work and was voted Student of the Year, an award in which Dr. Lippold is proud and humbled to have received.

Dr. Lippold stays busy chasing around his two kids, Benedict and Charlotte Grace, or outdoors gardening, being an avid Chiefs fan, or just reading a great book. He’s also been known to have a bow and arrow in his hands as he loves archery.

Brittney, Dental Assistant

I was born and raised in Marshall, MO and in 2012, I moved to Independence where I still reside with my son, Liam and my dog, Athena. In 2013, I started in the dental field, attending Summit Dental Assisting Academy where I earned my certificate as a dental assistant. I went on to take my Missouri Basic Skills test through the Missouri Dental Board in 2014. With a desire to continue learning and advancing my skills as an assistant, I obtained my EFDA certificate in Restorative 1 and Fixed Prosthetics at Ozarks Technical Community College in Springfield, MO. I also obtained my certification in the monitoring of Nitrous Oxide-Oxygen Analgesia and in Deep Sedation/General Anesthesia.

I’ve always had a passion for helping others and have worked in health care since I was 16. I was drawn to the dental field because it is a career where I’m able to take an active role in helping others as well as have an impact on their oral health. I am excited to be part of the Dental ER team. The welcoming environment makes you feel like you are part of a family. It’s exciting to be a part of a great team, who values their patients as much as we do.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my son, taking our dog on walks, playing outdoors and watching movies. I also enjoy taking trips back to my hometown to visit my family and friends.
