Heather Cline, DDS
I love to create beautiful, healthy smiles for my patients every day. However, the highlight of my job is getting to know them personally and providing a comfortable and positive dental experience for them. When my patients sit up after an appointment with a huge smile and say, “wow, that was easy!” I know I’ve done my job well.
Born and raised in the state of Missouri, I graduated from Marshfield High School in 1994. I received my BS degree in Cell and Molecular Biology from then southwest Missouri State University. I then attended dental school at the University of Missouri- Kansas City and graduated in 2001 with my Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree. Although my formal education is complete, I always strive to keep up-to-date on current dental methods and technology. Each new technique I implement into our practice provides more comfortable and efficient services for our patients, which is my highest priority!
Outside of of work, my #1 priority is family. I love spending time with my husband, Dr. Frank Newman, our 2 sons, Grant and Weston, and our daughter Addisyn. We love sports and are huge St. Louis and Springfield Cardinals fans. We are big supporters of Missouri State University sports as well! I have 3 four legged kids at home as well, Chloe Patches, Skye and Rosie. We enjoy the outdoors and lead active lives!
In our community, I am an active member of Trinity Lutheran Church in Springfield. My chiIdren attend Springfield Lutheran Schools where I volunteer. I am a member of the Greater Springfield Dental Society, a Give Kids a Smile participant, and a member of the Missouri Dental Association and American Dental Association. I also volunteer for the Donated Dental Services Program through the MDA, which is a humanitarian service for disabled, elderly and medically compromised patients.
