We would love to have you meet our dentists Dr. Robin Khan and Dr. Melissa Nensel. Our dentists have many years of experience and offer unique dental services to meet all your dental needs.
Dr. Robin Khan
A background in nursing prior to her dental education has evolved into a unique and passionate approach to dentistry. It’s created a desire to enhance her patients’ general health, as well as their dental concerns. Having spent her professional career learning from the top mentors in the country in the discipline of cosmetic dentistry (including Invisalign, veneers, conservative smile enhancement and more), she feels at the peak of her career in general and cosmetic dentistry. From her years of experience and pursuit of excellence, a belief and understanding of collaborative care has emerged. She feels that a firm understanding and appreciation of dental specialists is paramount in providing the highest standard of care.
In the past years she has dedicated her educational pursuit to the discipline of craniofacial pain and TMJ disorders and sleep apnea treatment. These areas of focus are so intertwined with an individual’s general health and quality of life. This is a relatively new discipline in dentistry, and she is excited to share her knowledge and experience in treating patients with chronic head and neck pain and atypical facial and oral anomalies. Again, she has found an alliance with Postural Restorative Physical Therapists in order to co-manage, and treat chronic patients so they can achieve their highest level of health.
Dr. Khan is an Associate Professor at Creighton University School of Dentistry. She completed her 18 month Fellow of the American academy of Craniofacial Pain (FAACP). with Baylor University. She is also a graduate of Steve Olmos residency program on TMJ and Sleep Apnea.
Outside of raising some children that she is deeply proud of, she considers the success she has had in building relationships with her patients and successfully addressing their dental concerns to be her life’s reward. Dr. Khan believes that all people desire and deserve the best health and dental care available. Her passion for dentistry comes from her heart and her mind.
Dr. Melissa Nensel
Dr. Nensel has a passion for comprehensive care that provides optimum esthetics, function and overall health. She values building relationships with patients so that she can truly understand and meet the goals of each individual. Dr. Nensel received her undergraduate degree from Creighton University and her Doctor of Dental Surgery from the University of Iowa College of Dentistry. Her experience with the most up-to-date dental technology enables her to offer her patients advanced, comfortable dentistry and achieve excellent results. Dr. Nensel is a member of the American Dental Association and the Academy of General Dentistry. Dr. Nensel is committed to lifelong continuing education. She is a member of the Midwest Gnathostatic Research & Study Group, which meets yearly to discuss varying dental topics.
