My name is Dr. Frankie Banhart, the new dentist here at Antioch Dental. I grew up in a small town just outside of Kansas City, MO. I knew I wanted to be a dentist from a young age. My dentist had a profound impact on my oral health and confidence as a child - from fillings to braces and all the way through high school. I knew I wanted to have that same effect on children and families during my career. I started by going to UMKC for my bachelor’s degrees in chemistry and spanish. I fell in love with Kansas City during my undergraduate education and decided to attend UMKC School of Dentistry. In dental school I learned about public health dentistry and the great need for dentists in diverse communities before graduating with a Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 2017. From the rural communities where I grew up to the urban core where I spent the last eight years of my education, my call to serving people was very strong. I spent one year at a non-profit organization treating children from age 0 to 18, then moved on to private practice at Antioch Dental and Shawnee Dental in Johnson County. Outside of the office, I am a die-hard Royals and Chiefs fan and my dog Porter loves to watch the games with me. My wife, Dr. Megan Snodgrass is a pharmacist at the University of Kansas Medical Center.
