After thirteen years of building a life and a dental practice, I never dreamed I would leave Indiana. In 2013, after visiting Benzie County, our three children asked my husband and I some serious questions about how and why we chose to live in Indianapolis. Those questions caused us to get out our moral compasses to see if we were truly living our most purposeful lives. We realized that overly busy, big city life with crowded neighborhoods, communities and schools was not our best route for being able to serve others.

Our wise, youngest child declared, “people have teeth everywhere.“ He proposed that I could find a new job up here, and daddy the writer, could work from home. This began my search to find just the right practice that embraced my ideal philosophies of conservative dentistry using high quality clinical skills. I was also looking for an office small enough to always have time for genuinely knowing patients and their families, their joys and concerns as well as their teeth.

I could not have envisioned a more suitable mentor than Dr. Charlie Kehr. Working together for a year I learned that we shared many of the same thoughts and practices for treating the whole patient. I took over the practice full time in May 2015. My heart seeks to preserve the legacy of Charlie’s thirty five years in practice by continuing to take loving care of his patients while slowly adding new patients so as to always have time for everyone. My hands and my head seek to follow my passions of encouraging prevention, listening to the needs and concerns of each individual patient and providing gentle, quality, lasting care. 

When I am not practicing dentistry or staying up to date with new technologies and research, I  enjoy testing new products as a clinical advisor for the Dental Advisor. I enjoy spending time with my family. Michael, my husband, and I met while attending DePauw University. He is my best friend and we have been married since 2003. We never planned to work together, but he seamlessly fit right into the flow at the office and helps out with so many of the "other" day to day jobs that make the office function so that I can focus more on patients and dentistry. We have three inquisitive children, Maya, Michael and Quinten who are all involved in the Frankfort schools. I seek to find the joy and beauty in everything and everyone around me.  I adore photography. When I'm not at the office or out with my camera, you can frequently find me in the kitchen. I strive to be a good example of healthy eating and living.  "Everything in moderation, including moderation" and "how you do anything is how you do everything" are two of my favorite quotes. I also love waterskiing, kayaking, paddle boarding, swimming and sailing where I am in, on or near the water. I look forward to meeting you in the practice or out in the community.

Sincerely,
 

Lisa Musgrave  

 

 

 

 
Dr. Musgrave and all the staff are the most professional and friendly people you will find. All of my exams, cleanings and procedures have been easy and painless. The scheduling and billing has always been simple and free of surprises. I would recommend them to anyone, especially those who may have hesitations about the dentist’s office.
