About Roe Body Shop/ Dr Dent
The more things change, the more they stay the same. That old adage can certainly be used to describe the evolution of Roe Body Shop since its beginning.
Consider that our roots have always been firmly planted in Roeland Park, Kansas. The business was first established in October 1969 at 5033 Roe, near the site of what is now the Quik Trip store. Originally, the business was engaged only in automotive body repair work and any mechanical repairs were referred to Glenn’s Auto Service, which, at that time, was located at the northeast intersection of Shawnee Mission Parkway and Buena Vista Drive, also in Roeland Park. Early on, however, the owners of those two businesses wisely foresaw that they could better meet their customers needs by combining operations and, consequently, the two companies merged in the early 1970’s. In 1979, continuing growth dictated a larger facility and the company moved to its present address of 4715 Roe Parkway in the Roeland Industrial Park. Only four years later, the building was further expanded to meet demand.
