Caitlin Chamberlain, DDS
Dr. Caitlin Chamberlain
Dr. Caitlin Chamberlain was raised in Columbia, Missouri. In college, she played soccer at the University of Central Missouri. She went on to attend dental school at the University of Missouri – Kansas City School of Dentistry, where she graduated Cum Laude.
After graduation, Dr. Chamberlain attended a 1-year Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency in Honolulu, HI. After some serious debate, she and her husband, Milton, returned to the Kansas City Metro in 2016. She now lives in Liberty with her husband and her two young children, Hendrix and Evelyn.
Dr. Chamberlain began her journey into a functional approach to health after the birth of her son. It was at this time that she started realizing the shortcomings of the healthcare system. The current healthcare system lacks any focus on prevention and maintains an overbearing emphasis on symptom management. While working at the VA for 3.5 years, she realized that simply filling cavities and telling patients to brush twice a day were completely inadequate at keeping her patients healthy, and try as she might, her patients were returning to her for fillings with alarming frequency.
In personally working with a functional medicine physician, Dr. Chamberlain realized how functional medicine benefited her own life. It was then that she realized she needed to incorporate the functional medicine mindset into her practice of dentistry.
Dr. Chamberlain is dedicated to helping her patients discover the root causes of their oral health issues. As a functional dentist, she is focused on optimizing the health of the mouth and airway, and by extension, the whole body! She collaborates with a number of like-minded wellness providers, including chiropractors, massage therapists, myofunctional therapists, nutritionists and functional medicine practitioners to help her patients reach their wellness goals.
Dr. Chamberlain is a member of the American Dental Association, Missouri Dental Association, American Academy of Physiological Medicine and the American Academy of Oral Systemic Health.
Outside of work, you can find Dr. Chamberlain out and about at one of the many family-friendly venues throughout the KC metro, meditating, trying new restaurants with her husband, or at the gym. She also loves travelling and exploring new cities and cultures around the world.
Dr. Chamberlain is so excited to join you on your journey towards well-being and she is here to support you every step of the way. The journey may not always be easy, but it will always be worth it! #BeVital!
