Dr. Corey Mack
CORE Family Dentistry LLC
1217 East Main Street, Linn

Compassionate, Thoughtful, Spirited

Jefferson City native Dr. Corey Mack is one of the few female dentists in the area. Her patients often comment that she has small hands and a light touch, which makes visits to the chair more pleasant.

Corey didn’t always want to be a dentist. Growing up with crooked teeth through many years in braces sparked her interest in being a dental hygienist — until a career day in high school, when a local dentist asked if she had ever considered the profession. “She hadn’t, but he planted the seed that changed her path,” says Jonathan Mack. Initially interested in being an orthodontist, during her later years in dental school, Corey grew to truly enjoy general dentistry.

She purchased the existing dental practice of Dr. Craig Starnes and started CORE Family Dentistry earlier this year. Corey has been a dentist for more than 11 years and is excited to take the next step in her career as business owner. CORE’s mission is to provide “the dentistry you need delivered with the care you deserve.” Their focus is to provide a comfortable dental home where patients can receive comprehensive treatment, exceptional compassion, and care.

CORE provides general dental services, including cleanings and fillings, as well as more complex procedures like crowns, bridges, root canals, extractions, dentures, and more. Corey is skilled at working with children as well.

She completed a residency through the University of New Mexico Hospital in Albuquerque following graduation from UMKC School of Dentistry, a program that provided her with advanced training the average dentist does not receive. It was her goal when she began dental school to run her own practice — so CORE Family Dentistry is a dream come true.
