The Staff

Our staff is here to serve you. They are compassionate, knowledgeable, and friendly, and we think they are among the best in the Kansas City area.

Dr. Steve Schulte is a Kansas City native who graduated from the University of Missouri-Kansas City Dental School. Upon graduation, he was asked by the faculty to join them in teaching. Dr. Schulte accepted that honor and later was also an instructor in the Johnson County Community College Dental Hygiene Program. Dr. Schulte is married to his wife, Debbie. They have two grown daughters and are grandparents. Dr. Schulte’s passions are as follows: serving his church family at Mission Road Bible Church, seeing friends and making new friends who are also our patients.

Mirah has been a Dental Hygienist since 2001. She earned her Bachelor’s degree from the University of Kansas and her Associates degree in Dental Hygiene from Johnson County Community College. She also taught in the program later. Mirah lives in Olathe with her husband and two young children where she used to enjoy traveling, baking, and shopping—before children—and would like to resume those leisurely activities someday.

Cookie attended Kansas University before finishing her degree in Dental Hygiene from the University of Missouri-Kansas City in 1977. She has been working with Dr. Schulte since 1985 who, she says, “has the nicest patients in the world!” Cookie enjoys spoiling her two grandchildren, gardening, cheering on her Jayhawks, and meeting new friends.
Janet began her working years in the telecommunications business. She started in Odessa, Texas as a telephone operator (this was one of the few positions a woman could have in those days). She transferred to San Antonio, Texas and became the first female technician in San Antonio. She met the true love of her life at a company school in Dallas, Texas and they married and blended their family. She and her daughter moved to Prairie Village, Kansas to be with her new husband and his four children. She retired in 1991 from Southwestern Bell and pursued more telecommunications jobs and banking jobs. She started as Dr. Schulte’s business assistant in 2015. Janet is widowed but has a wonderful family of five children and their spouses, seven grandchildren, and two great grandchildren. Janet loves serving in her church and using her God given talents. She enjoys her family and feels complete and blessed by them.
Krysta has worked with Dr. Schulte since September 2017. She attended The Master’s College in California, graduating with a Biblical Studies degree in 2015. In her spare time, Krysta enjoys spending time with her husband, hanging out with friends, baking bread, and playing with her cat.
