Jeffrey Stasch, DDS
My journey started in a VERY small town in the sandhills of north-central Nebraska. As a young boy, people would bring anything that was broken or worn out and say, “See if you can fix this.” I love taking anything apart, seeing how it works (or doesn’t) and fixing it. Presently I am completely disassembling and restoring a 1962 Jeep pickup.
I went to school at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, and have practiced in Garden City for 33 years—the blink of an eye! Through those years, I have been president of the Kansas Dental Association and served on the State Dental Board.
Nationally, I served on the American Dental Association Council on Access Prevention and Interprofessional Relations, and was a founding member of the Give Kids a Smile Advisory Board, as well as Kansas representative to the House of Delegates. I was co-founder of the Kansas Mission of Mercy dental access project, which led to being the first president of the America’s Dentists Care Foundation, which provides free dental care in 35 states to the tune of $45 million annually.
But the bottom line for me is that dentistry is a perfect blending of science and art: It must look beautiful, and it has to last a long time. My best day is when I see a patient who came in with a mouth full of problems, and after fixing things, they have come in for years of perfect checkups. That is a win for both of us!

Lynn is a Georgia native. She moved to Garden City 5 years ago with her husband. She enjoys music, watching movies, and spending time with her family and two dogs.

Savannah is the newest hygienist on our team. She graduated from Colby Community College in 2016 where she earned her Associate of Applied Science degree in Dental Hygiene. Savannah is a Northwest Kansas native. She grew up in Oakley, Kansas where she worked on her grandparents’ farm throughout high school and college. Along with being a healthcare professional, she is also a professional grain cart driver when harvest rolls around. She recently got married and moved to Scott City with her husband. They enjoy hunting, gardening, and spoiling their 3 dogs.
In 1983 I started my career in dentistry in my home town of Ulysses, Kansas. Over the years dentistry has grown and changed with the education of home care in the schools and TV commercials promoting overall health including taking care of dental needs. It is an exciting field to grow relationships with patients. I moved to Garden City a little over 7 years ago. It has been a great re-start of life growing friendships and meeting new people of all ages. In our spare time, my husband and I enjoy travel to see our 5 grown children and 11 grandchildren in many different states. I love to cook, grill, and entertain in our home.
Lisa is a recent transplant to Garden City. A 2004 dental hygiene graduate from Colby Community College, she is part of a dental legacy: Her dad is a dentist, and her mom is a retired hygienist. Lisa’s first job was assisting for her father.
She is passionate about helping her patients achieve optimal oral health. As the practice’s office manager, she prefers to call herself, the “Other.” She can pinch hit as the “other” front desk person, “other” assistant, and “other” hygienist. She is our patient treatment coordinator and sees all our new patients first.
When she isn’t working, Lisa enjoys gardening and photography, and she was recently certified in SCUBA diving.
Kasey received her Bachelor of Science in dental hygiene from Wichita State; she was a Sigma Phi Alpha and a member of the National Dental Hygiene Honor Society.
This Johnson native is a people person and cites patients and coworkers among her favorites. Kasey enjoys spending time with family and friends, traveling, listening to live music, and spending time outdoors.
