Dr John Meschke
Dr. Meschke completed his bachelor’s degree in Business at the University of Kansas then went on to graduate from the University of Missouri Dental School. Dr. Meschke practiced General Dentistry for 9 years before realizing that his true passion was in Orthodontics. At this time, he made the decision to return to school to obtain 3 additional years of specialized training and a degree in Orthodontics from the University of Missouri Kansas City. Dr. Meschke has now been practicing orthodontics for over 25 years and specializes in the treatment of children and teens. During his time practicing he has joined several professional organizations, including the American Association of Orthodontists, the American Dental Association, the American Association of Functional Orthodontics, the Kansas Society of Orthodontics and Central Kansas Dental Society. He has also been the President of the Kansas Society of Orthodontists, UMKC Orthodontic Alumni, Central District Dental Society and the Hutchinson Dental Study Club. Dr. Meschke feels there is no greater satisfaction than the opportunity to create a healthy and more pleasing smile that will positively impact a child’s self-esteem for a lifetime.
Dr. Meschke married his college sweetheart Nan after they attended KU together. They have two sons, Scott & Cory. Both of their sons have beautiful families of their own. Dr. Meschke & Nan enjoy spending as much time as they can with their 5 grandchildren- Flynn & Beck in Seattle and Charlie, Ruby and Sylvie in Kansas City.
Dr. Meschke’s favorite pastime is being on the golf course! He is an avid KU basketball fan and enjoys dabbling in sculpting which is something that has always interested him. (He’s pretty darn good at it too!) When Dr. Meschke & Nan find time to get away, their favorite places to travel are the beach at Destin, FL., the mountains of Colorado or Sante Fe, NM.
