Meet Dr. Kole Krasniqi

Dr. Krasniqi completed his undergraduate studies at Rockhurst University then went on to earn his DDS degree at the University of Missouri Kansas City - School of Dentistry. Each year, Dr. Krasniqi expands his knowledge and skills in all areas of dentistry by completing 2–3 times the amount of continuing education required by the Missouri Dental Board. He makes it a priority to stay current on the latest treatments, technologies, and materials in order to provide his patients with the highest possible level of care.

Dr. Krasniqi has two beautiful daughters, Elisa and Elena, with his wife Anita. When he’s not at the office, you’ll find him fishing, hiking, biking, and taking advantage of all the great outdoor activities Missouri has to offer. He’s also a history buff and always tries to find time to enjoy a good history book.
