Practice History

Duensing Family Dentistry opened as a private practice in general dentistry in 1953. We moved to our current location at 101 E. 23rd Avenue in NKC, MO in 1962. Started by Dr. William J. Duensing Sr., DFD was built upon the principles of sound moral character, integrity, and a commitment to patient care. Leaning on those principles DFD quickly became a well respected dental practice in the Northland community. Dr. Duensing Sr. worked long hours over many years with an emphasis on service to his patients. As a result of that commitment to service many families became longtime regular patients at DFD.

In 1981 Dr. William J. Duensing, Jr joined the practice. The two worked together for 5 years with the torch officially being passed when Dr. Duensing Sr. retired in 1986. For 37 years Dr. Duensing Jr. worked diligently to maintain the commitment to patient care that has become the hallmark of DFD. He retired in 2018.

Dr. William M. Duensing joined the practice in 2012 after serving 4 years as a general dentist in the US Navy. DFD is extremely honored and proud to continue service to the northland for a third generation in a row. DFD will continue to look to the future and evolve with technology to better serve our patients needs. All the while, never forgetting the principles of knowledge, sound moral character, integrity and a commitment to patient care, on which we were founded.
