Dr. Jana Kortje grew up in Norfolk, Nebraska. She attended the University of Nebraska in Lincoln. In just three years, she completed her undergraduate degree majoring in biology with minors in political science and psychology. Following her undergraduate degree, she remained in Lincoln and earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery from the University of Nebraska Medical Center in 2009. We try not to hold it against her when she wears Nebraska red on football Saturdays.
Dr. Jana is an active member of the American Dental Association and the Missouri Dental Association. She attends regular continuing education classes with the Greater Kansas City Dental Society and completed the Esthetic Alliance continuing education program on implants in 2014.
Dr. Jana lives nearby the practice in Prairie Village. She loves to be close so she can come home over lunch and exercise her chocolate lab, Lindti. Her husband, Shervin, recently completed his anesthesia residency at KU Med. They are happy to be staying in KC as he enjoys his new position at Lee’s Summit Medical Center.
