Drs. Preston and Shannon White grew up in Hutchinson, Kansas, and got married in 2006. They attended undergraduate school and dental school together. Working together at their own family dental practice has always been a dream of theirs.
Both doctors are passionate about providing the highest level of dental care to their patients. They offer a wide range of procedures, from preventative to cosmetic procedures for their patients in a compassionate and comfortable setting. They believe that everyone deserves to be proud of their smile. “A dental office providing smiles for the whole family” is how the White’s view their practice. Unlike most dental offices that refer young patients and difficult procedures out, the Whites want their patients to feel like they have a dental home where their entire family is provided state-of-the-art treatment.
The Whites live in Springfield and enjoy spending their free time with their four children. The whole family loves spending time outdoors together. Preston especially enjoys hunting and fishing. Shannon enjoys reading and crafting. Both doctors look forward to meeting and taking care of the good people of the Springfield area.

I graduated in 2006 from the Vatterott Dental program and have been working at White Smiles Family Dental since 2010. I have enjoyed working in every position in the dental office but now focus my time as the insurance coordinator. I love helping enhance the health of patients and create smiles that boost patients' confidence and self-esteem. In my free time, I love baking, reading, crafting, and spending time with my three kids and husband at the lake.
I was born in Louisiana and spent many years in Missouri, Nebraska, and Texas. I graduated from Missouri State University in 2005 with a bachelor degree in Marketing Management. I have been working in the dental field since 2014.
My husband Roy and I have two daughters, Peyton and Presley. We also have two fur babies, who help complete their family.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, golf, and trying new restaurants.
Growing up in Walnut Grove I knew for a long time that I wanted a career that allowed me to encourage others to be healthy and confident. I quickly discovered that being a Dental Hygienist was the perfect career for me. After graduating from MSSU I started working at White Smiles Family Dental and loved every second of it. When I am not improving smiles I enjoy hunting, fishing, playing guitar, and spoiling my pups.
I grew up in the Ozark and graduated from Ozark High School before getting my Dental Assisting degree from Vatterott college. I have been a chair side dental assistant for over 19 years. I love helping people improve their smiles and change their lives. I have four children and a husband, and outside of work, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, camping, kayaking, fishing and anything outdoors.
I grew up in Nixa, and after high school, I graduated from the OTC Dental Hygiene program in 2009. I love my job because I get to interact with new and old friends every day. One of my favorite things about being a Dental Hygienist is the relationship I develop with everyone who comes into the office. I have two children, a husband, and enjoy spending time with them, riding horses, and barrel racing.
