Jared G. Buescher, DDS

I was born and raised in Mid-Missouri. I grew up in Ashland, went to high school in Jefferson City and worked as a registered nurse in Columbia for nine years before starting dental school at the University of Missouri-Kansas City.I love getting to speak with my patients and strive to have a positive impact on their health and comfort. I get to work with my hands and tackle problems ranging from hygiene to replacing missing teeth. It was a challenging road to get here and I see it as a privilege to do what I do. I enjoy the outdoors, whether here in Columbia, in the Ozarks or as far away as Alaska. I take every opportunity to watch Mizzou basketball and football and love spending time with my wife and daughter.
