Kari Blankenship DDS is the newest addition to the team at Texas Denture Clinic, as an Associate Dentist. Dr. Blankenship will be present on Thursdays and some Tuesdays. As our practice continues to grow from excellent patient experiences, additional procedures offered, and increasing word of mouth referrals from our patients we will add days to Dr. Blankenship's schedule. Our goal is to bring her on full time in the next year or so. This way we can offer expanded patient care days.
Dr. Blankenship grew up in the DFW area - Grapevine to be specific and went on to get her DDS degree from University of Texas Health Sciences Center in San Antonio. She went on to become a hospital trained dentist, like Dr. Damon, at the Micheal E DeBakey Veterans Affairs Hospital in Houston. There she advanced her skills in restorative dentistry, became proficient in advanced prosthodontics (full mouth restorations, advanced implant denture planning and restoration) and gained vast surgical knowledge from months spent with the oral surgery service. This is where she spent many days administering IV Sedation and was responsible for putting patients to sleep in the OR with general anesthesia.
Dr. Blankenship will be bringing this experience to mirror Dr. Damon’s experience in the same program. “I feel great about the skill set that she brings” Dr. Damon says “by both having the same experience we are able to provide the same experience, diagnosis, and treatment planning ability. Whether a patient sees myself or Dr. Blankenship they will get the same level of care and diagnosis.” Dr. Blankenship says that she likes working with the patients at Texas Denture Clinic and enjoys total smile makeover that patients can get with dentures, veneeres, the teeth in a day procedure - All on Four, and full mouth implants.
When she’s not in the office, Dr. Blankenship enjoys running, playing guitar and frequenting dog parks with her chihuahua puppy, Biscuits.
