Randal A. Silver, DMD
I graduated from Nova Southeastern University 2004 in General Dentistry and spent an additional year of study in Advanced Education in General Dentistry while serving in the United States Airforce. My favorite part of dentistry are the everyday interactions I get to have with my patients. I also enjoy diagnosing and treating obstructive sleep apnea. I love combining newer treatment for sleep apnea with dentistry.
Favorite Past Times: While most of time away from the office is centered around my family, I enjoy strategy games like Texas Holdem Poker and Backgammon. I also love to travel around the country to spend time with distant friends and relatives. And if you have a good recommendation for a science fiction novel, please share.
Funny Moments: When my wife called me at the office laughing to tell me to look down: I was wearing two different shoes!
Stephanie Straub, DDS
I graduated from Creighton School of Dentistry in 2008 and I am a perfectionist when it comes to making someone’s smile beautiful. My goal has always been to meet all my patient’s expectations in giving them a healthy and beautiful smile all while keeping their treatment affordable.

Josetta DeFrancisco, DMD
I graduated from Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine in Cleveland, Ohio in 2017. After dental school I completed a 1 year Advanced Education in General Dentistry Residency at University of Missouri-Kansas City. During residency I was able to further my skills in surgical, esthetic and prosthetic dentistry. I love giving people the smiles they’ve always dreamed of! I truly believe a beautiful smile is a gateway to the best things in life. Sometimes, it all starts with a confident smile!
Favorite Past Times: I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, shopping and trying new restaurants around the city! If you have a good recommendation let me know!
Funny Moments: Singing to the radio and dancing around the office with patients watching
Amber Elliot, Business Manager
I have been living and raising my family in the Kansas City Area for the last 16 years. I was a stay at home mom for more than 10 years and re-entered the workforce 7 years ago here at True Dental Group. My goal is always to give every patient all the information and options for them to be able to make the best choice for their dental needs.
Favorite Past Times: When I am not at work I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, and traveling.
Funny Moments: My funniest moment at work would probably have to be when I was talking on the phone to a patient and somehow fell out of my chair face first with an office full of people.
