Kenneth R. Sharp, D.D.S.
Family Dentist in McKinney, TX
Stonebridge Ranch Smiles
Dr. Kenneth Sharp was born and raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and attained his bachelor's degree from Southwestern Adventist University. He later received his doctorate degree from prestigious Loma Linda University School of Dentistry, located in Loma Linda, California, where he was recognized for high quality clinical work, exceptional treatment planning abilities, and precise operational and procedural skills.
Dr. Sharp is passionate about his patient's oral health and creating beautiful smiles! One of his goals is to have his patients be well informed about their dental problems and treatments, because "informed patients make much better decisions about their health and well being, and at the end of the day, that's what matters." He has a strong belief in providing state of the art, relationship-based, comprehensive care that is tailored to fit into the lives and budgets of his patients.
While the State of Texas and the American Dental Association requires all licensed dentists to complete 12 hours of continuing education annually, Dr. Sharp feels it is vitally important to go above and beyond this requirement to stay cutting edge on all the latest and greatest techniques, procedures, materials, research and equipment that dentistry has to offer. He completes 50+ continuing educational hours annually, committing himself to be the best he can be to each of his patients.
Dr. Sharp has been with his wife, Carissa, for 20 years, and they have two fun-loving boys and a new baby girl! Aiden is 9, Gavin is 6, and baby Claire arrived August 2015. Dr. Sharp spends his leisure time with his family and playing golf, and loves his church, fitness, travel and football. Go Cowboys!

- American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD)
- Academy of General Dentistry (AGD)

Sophia came to Stonebridge Ranch Smiles in 2013, but don't let her semi-new status with the office fool you! She is an excellent hygienist with a sharp clinical eye and a friendly, approachable chair side manor. Patients constantly comment on her thorough yet gentle treatment and her constant smiles. She comes to us bringing eight prior years of licensed hygiene experience. Sophia graduated with a bachelor’s degree from the University of Louisiana at Monroe, and she is originally from Grayson, Louisiana, and living in Texas with her husband and two dogs for the last four years.
One of Sophia’s joys is to provide optimal care to every patient that she encounters, and to make it fit their individual needs. She loves the working environment at Stonebridge Ranch Smiles and the professional and compassionate care that Dr. Sharp provides to each and every patient.
Away from work, Sophia takes pleasure in spending time with her dogs, serving her church, and reading. And big news... she and her husband will welcome their first baby girl in Spring 2016!

Melissa - Financial Coordinator and Office Manager
Melissa joined Stonebridge Ranch Smiles in April 2009 as a Dental Assistant, coming from the West Texas area. Her friendly, funny and caring chair side manner made her a quick favorite of our patients, while her extensive knowledge and organizational skills in procedural dental care and laboratory work quickly got her promoted to Lead Assistant within the same year. In 2013, she made a career change by accepting the open Office Manager/Financial Coordinator position and continues to play a vital role in the offices' success in the position today. Although the office manager position has presented her with lots of variety and challenges, her well-honed skill set, organizational skills, creativity and sense of humor has allowed her to rise to the challenge while continuing to nurture patient relationships and make a difference in the lives of not just Dr. Sharp and the staff, but also with our patients and the Stonebridge community. She has fifteen years of dental office experience, so rest assured, you're in good hands!
Melissa originally comes from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan where she was born and raised, and attended Northern Michigan University. She later joined the United States Navy where she served for four years and later met her husband.
In her free time, Melissa enjoys reading, volunteer work with McKinney ISD, and spending time with her husband, Randy; her two daughters, Marley and London; and the fun loving family dog, Tessy.
Carissa - Business Operations
Bringing a strong background in human resources, client services, case management and coordination, Carissa came on board with Dr. Sharp when Stonebridge Ranch Smiles first opened its doors in July of 2008. “I enjoy working with Dr. Sharp! He is consistently passionate about delivering honest, high quality, conservative care to each individual. It is a work ethic and philosophy that is easy for me to believe in, actively take part in, and be proud of.” She specializes in the behind the scenes necessities of business management, like accounts receivables/payables, staff payroll, accounting liaison, data monitoring, budgets, etc., etc.
Carissa graduated from Andrews University in 2002 with a M.A. in Clinical Counseling, and was a therapist conducting individual and group therapies with a specialty in children’s therapy models. Carissa is a professed “people person” and really enjoys meeting and working with both the patients and the wonderful office staff. When not working, she is either reading or wrangling two fun-loving boys and her baby girl, as well as the family dog.
