Though Dr. Youngjune Chang has earned an impressive stack of degrees from universities in both Korea and the United States, he never stops honing his craft, enriching his dental expertise with continuing education programs and cosmetic dentistry studies. Together with a team of skilled hygienists and assistants, Dr. Chang helps patients beautify and protect their mouths with treatments ranging from routine cleanings and exams to installing computer-designed crowns and inlays or reshaping gums with targeted laser therapy. The clinic keeps smiles healthy and intact with high-tech procedures and technology, such as dental implants, 3D x-rays, digital x-rays that forego radiation, and an intraoral camera that doesn't even need any tape in it to deter plaque from committing its typical crimes.
Dr. Geoffrey Riley seeks to cultivate the same friendly, familial atmosphere in his small practice that he remembers from his small-town upbringing. After extensive schooling, two years in a large group office, and a residency where he focused on dental implants and full mouth cases, Dr. Riley opened Advanced Dental Arts in June 2011.
His personable approach leads to appointments where he and his staff talk to each patient and get to know them, unlike at other dentists' offices, where patients are referred to by their social-security numbers. Whether he's whitening teeth, conducting a root canal, or straightening chompers with Invisalign, Dr. Riley always takes time to educate patients about the procedure and oral health in general.
At Parkville Dental Center, Dr. John Huke and his team of dedicated assistants and hygienists keep mouths clean and healthy and smiles full and bright with routine care, cosmetic treatments, and vital dental procedures. Patients guard against cavities and decay with regular cleanings and exams or repair damaged and infected teeth with resin-based, metal-free fillings. Zoom! whitening treatments brighten enamel by several shades in just a single visit, and TMJ and migraine relief therapy soothe pain throughout the entire head.
Since he started practicing dentistry in 1989, Dr. Bill Busch has obtained a slew of posts with renowned dental organizations, such as the 3M Council of Innovative Dentistry, and won accolades including the Mastership Award from the Academy of General Dentistry. Dr. Busch draws on his years of experience and expertise as he and a team of hygienists perform a full slate of dental services at North Kansas City Dental. The office uses a number of high-tech, paperless innovations, including all-electronic graphing and digital x-rays. These technologies are more accurate than older methods and easier on the environment—an eco-friendliness that extends to the use of nonmercury fillings and solar-powered dental floss. Cutting-edge technology is also used during cosmetic services such as teeth whitening and porcelain veneers and advanced procedures, including crowns and dentures.
Drs. Maria Kunstadter and Michael Sigler take unusual measures in their quest to quell dental anxiety. Beyond employing the typical nerve-calming bedside manner of any good dentist, the duo has incorporated soothing spa treatments into their standard dental routines. Massage therapists are on hand to lull patients into stress-free states with full body massages and aromatherapy oils inundate patients' senses with calming scents as they recline in dental chairs for an x-ray, Invisalign appointment, or routine hygiene visit.
