Drs. Mark & Kimberly Bush


For Drs. Mark and Kimberly Bush, it's all about family! Regardless of whether it's their Bush Family Dentistry team or their patients, everyone here is treated as one of the family.

For Dr. Mark, dentistry is in his blood. He has always known he wanted to be a dentist and was influenced greatly by his father, Dr. Richard Bush, who practiced dentistry in Kearney for more than 40 years. Dr. Mark and Dr. Kim met while she was career shadowing in his dad’s dental office. There are now more than 10 dentists in their immediate and extended family!

Both Drs. Mark and Kim attended Kearney State College (now University of Nebraska at Kearney) and graduated from the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Dentistry in 1986. After practicing for several years in McCook, they have served Kearney and the surrounding communities for more than 20 years.

Continuing education is a commitment for both Drs. Mark and Kim. They have logged thousands of hours in the areas of complex restorative dentistry, oral disease, implants, cosmetic dentistry and Invisalign®. Both have been students at The Pankey Institute, The Dawson Academy and Seattle Study Club.

Th Bushes have two children, both pursuing medical careers. Megan is in nursing and Garrett is in dentistry. Spending time with their children is their favorite pastime!

Drs. Mark and Kim both have a sincere concern for the health of their patients they serve here in Nebraska, but as a family, they have a love for serving the needs of the poor worldwide. They have taken numerous mission trips, providing care for hundreds of children and adults in Romania, Africa, Brazil and Guatemala.
