Dear Valued Patients,
We are excited to announce that our office is moving locations. In this transition, we are combining with Honey Bee Pediatric Dental Co.
Dr. Rebecca Ferns and Dr. Casey Rhoads opened Honey Bee in December of 2022 after over 8 years of being associate pediatric dentists. They started working for Lawrence Pediatric Dentistry when LPD was in need of pediatric dentists that could see their patients at Lawrence Memorial Hospital. Through this relationship and with Dr. Cobbs’s upcoming retirement, they were offered to purchase Lawrence Pediatric Dentistry. Since they had just built a new office they were happy to join forces with Lawrence Pediatric Dentistry and begin the process of introducing patients to their new location. They have loved getting to meet every family and hope they can continue to bring you great care throughout the years.
Dr. David Cobb will continue working for the practice as he loves being a pediatric dentist and wants to remain an active provider for as long as he can. He is excited to pass the torch to Dr. Casey and Dr. Becca. He looks forward to enjoying more time off as his last child graduates high school this year!
Lawrence Pediatric Dentistry’s lease is up soon at the current location so we will be reaching out to reschedule your child to the new location. We want to give you a heads up that you will likely receive a call, text message or an email from Honey Bee about your child’s upcoming visit! Beginning June 1, 2023 all appointments will be at Honey Bee Pediatric Dental Co. located at 4621 W. 6th St., Suite B, Lawrence KS, 66049.
It has been a pleasure serving you at our Maine street location for all of these years. Our team is making the move with you and we hope to see you at Honey Bee Pediatric Dental Co. soon!
Thank you for being patient with us during this new and exciting transition!
Dr. Cobb and your friends at Lawrence Pediatric Dentistry
Welcome to Honey Bee Pediatric Dental Co.!
We are Dr. Rebecca Ferns, “Dr. Becca”, and Dr. Casey Rhoads, “Dr. Casey”, and we are so thrilled to be welcoming you to our practice.
We started Honey Bee PDC in December 2022 with a goal to provide Lawrence with a pediatric dental experience that has parents and patients asking “When can I go back?” as they are walking out the door. Our values as pediatric dentists are to be honest, informational, gentle, kind and fun! As mothers ourselves we know how important it is to find a healthcare provider that has your child’s best interest in mind while also making sure you, the parent, are informed and involved in the decision making process.
Dr. Becca grew up in St. Louis, Missouri. She attended Westmont College in Santa Barbara, California for her undergraduate education. She then made her way back to Missouri to attend dental school at University of Missouri – Kansas City. While in dental school, she met her husband, Ryan, who is a practicing general dentist. Before becoming a pediatric dentist, she practiced general dentistry in Lawrence at the Douglas County Dental Clinic. She then completed her pediatric dental certificate at University of Southern California, and returned to Kansas City to begin her career. When she isn’t at the office she enjoys running, baking, and spending time with her daughter, Francie.
Dr. Casey grew up in Hays, Kansas and completed her undergraduate education right here in Lawrence. Rock Chalk! She then attended the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Dentistry in Lincoln, Nebraska where she met her husband, RJ, who is a general dentist. Dr. Casey went to Memphis, Tennessee to complete her pediatric dental training before heading back to the Midwest. Dr. Casey loves spending her free time with her husband and three children, Ryann, Trey, and Ty.
We hope you will join us at our new office. We have poured our heart and soul into this practice in hopes every child and parent that comes through our doors leaves healthy and happy!
We appreciate everyone who has already made the switch and look forward to meeting everyone else soon!
Dr. Becca and Dr. Casey
