Meet Dr. Browne

Dr. Robert Browne never thought his summer in Hawaii at 19 years old would lead to his future in dentistry. He didn’t go to the tropical paradise for vacation; he traveled to the island to work as a dental assistant at his brother-in-law’s practice, and take classes at the University of Hawaii.

He recalls choosing his career path after he assisted with his first extraction:

“I was driving home and I got a little bit of an adrenaline rush and knew this is what I want to do.”

Dr. Browne went back to Kansas City and received his undergraduate degree in Biology at the University of Missouri-Kansas City before going on to UMKC School of Dentistry and graduating in 1987. He worked his way through school by selling men’s clothing and also had a side business creating yard signs for birthdays and other events. He sold the business for profit after dental school, which helped him open his first practice in Brookside. In 2000 he moved to Prairie Village.

In his time providing smile care, Dr. Browne has formed warm relationships with many of his patients for over 30 years. He has cared for multiple family generations as patients return through the years. What is most important to him is that when patients come into the office, they are treated like family in a fun, friendly and stress-free environment. Many times, patients have real anxiety about a dental visit, and he and his staff take care to fully acknowledge and meet their needs in order to help maintain their overall health. He will listen to each patient’s concerns, and together they will find a treatment plan that works for them.

Dr. Browne enjoys and has years of experience mastering a variety of dental services. He handles almost all of the procedures in-house, so a patient rarely has to be referred to another office, something that can save considerable time and hassle in many situations.

“We always look for ways to exceed patients’ expectations,” Dr. Browne notes. “If someone arrives early we will seat them early. My personal cell phone is the after-hours contact for existing and new patients. Patients may not remember what I said or what I did, but they will remember how we made them feel.”

In his off time, Dr. Browne loves spending time with his family. He has a son and daughter. His daughter is a registered intensive care nurse in Colorado and his son is a graduate from high school in Blue Valley.
