I believe that behind every mouth is a human being, with hopes, fears, and desires. The most meaningful impact I can make in my patients’ lives is by understanding the needs of that person, before looking to their oral health. My mission in this profession is to help my patients achieve the healthy smiles they deserve. — Dr. Finney
Dr. Finney was born and raised in the great state of Texas. She received her Bachelor of Arts from Texas A&M University, where she studied Anthropology, Linguistics and Classical Civilizations. After college she had a brief career in sales, where she discovered a love for meeting new people, and using specialized knowledge to help them solve problems. This led to an unexpected turn into dentistry, which not only allows her to help people each day, but also to work with her hands. Dr. Finney received her dental training in San Antonio at the University of Texas Health Science, before pursuing a certificate in Advanced General Dentistry from University of Missouri, Kansas City.
Dr. Finney lives in Independence with her partner Tim and baby girl, Margaret. In her free time she loves working on various art projects, such as painting, cross stitching, and putting glitter on everything. She considers herself a lifelong learner and has been known to share tidbits of odd knowledge while delivering patient care. On weekends Dr. Finney spends her time visiting with friends and family and enjoying the wild ride that is being a new parent.Request An Appointment
