Dr. Kari Blankenship
Dr Blankenship grew up in Grapevine Tx. She attended college in New York City and received degrees in both biology and philosophy from Hunter College. After university, she went on to obtain her Doctorate of Dental Surgery from University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio. After graduating with honors, she completed a postdoctoral residency at the Michael E. DeBakey VA Hospital in Houston, where she received extensive and advanced training in all disciplines of dentistry. There, Dr. Blankenship developed a passion for treating medically compromised patients, and patients with extensive oral surgery needs and has since dedicated herself to improving, not only the appearance, but the health of her patient’s smiles. Dr. Blankenship continued to practice in Houston for several years where she was recognized as one of the Top 25 practicing dentists by “H Texas” magazine. This was the same residency program that Dr. Damon completed as well.
She returned to North Texas in 2013 and continues to provide excellent dental care for all phases of life. Her passions include implant therapy, full-mouth reconstructions, sleep medicine and cosmetic dentistry. Dr Blankenship attentively listens to each patient’s concerns and desires in order to create a custom-tailored treatment plan to meet their needs. Additionally, she attends extensive continuing education courses so that she can provide the best and latest treatment options available. In her spare time, Dr. Blankenship enjoys cooking, reading and running; she is currently learning how to play the guitar. She is excited to be apart of the team at Texas Denture Clinic, and also travels to Dr. Damon's office in Amarillo.
