Dr. Michael Kinard graduated from the University of Oklahoma College of Dentistry in 2015. Prior to studying at dental school, he attended University of Arkansas at Monticello where he received his Bachelors of Science. Dr. Kinard has had 7 years of experience in the dental field and stays up to date with many continuing education classes so he can provide the best care possible for his patients. He is a member of the Arkansas Dental Association, American Dental Association and Garland County Dental Society. He found interest in dentistry due to the impact he is able to have on patients lives by giving them a beautiful smile, allowing them to enjoy food again and the opportunity to relieve pain and suffering. Helping people get their dental health to a level that is ideal for them is what it is all about. Letting people know all of their dental problems and working with them to rectify their situation is the essence of dentistry.
Dr. Kinard and his wife, Brittney, are residents of Benton and have 3 children, Ethan, Abbie, and Asher. Both Dr. Kinard and his wife grew up in Southern Arkansas. They knew they wanted to live closer to family so they moved back to Arkansas after dental school. They fell in love with the area and knew they wanted to plant their roots in Benton and Bryant.

They are always busy with kids sports but when Dr. Kinard has free time he loves to run, kayak, hike, snow ski, and just about anything else outdoors.
