Each Plaza Dental Care session begins with a thorough exam that assesses one's dental health and locates any tumbleweeds lodged in the molars, while x-rays search the head-cave for signs of cavities and trapped miners. An expertly performed cleaning clears the tusks of plaque and clingy barnacles, improving oral health and preventing diseases such as tooth decay, gingivitis, and mumps. Patients will benefit from the expertise of Steven Williams, D.D.S., who utilizes sophisticated diagnostic equipment and impressively steady hands to provide the best possible dental services tailored to each individual. Patients will also be welcomed by a friendly, knowledgeable staff and enjoy in-room DVD movies during their visit, except for Marathon Man.
The staff at Thomas Anderson & Associates strives to make clients smile—and not just during their before-and-after pictures. Massage chairs, flat-screen TVs, and a wide selection of movies and music help make visits to the office as relaxing as a tumbler of whiskey enjoyed in one's very own pit of quicksand. Technicians apply a gentle touch when performing exams, x-rays, and other general-dentistry procedures. Cosmetic services—including teeth whitening and Invisalign—remain as noninvasive as possible.
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.
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.
At Kansas City Dental, Dr. Guerschon de Laurent addresses cosmetic, restorative, and preventative oral-health issues at their roots. The multilingual doctor employs a host of technologies, including intraoral cameras and digital x-rays, to project detailed views of the mouth and to find the underlying causes of dental aches and periodontal disease. Dr. Laurent corrects crowding or spacing problems with Invisalign retainers, gently coaxing teeth back into place with such successful results that in 2011 he earned the title of Premier Invisalign Provider in recognition of the more than 300 jaws he’s straightened. A commander in the US Army Reserves Dental Corps, Dr. Laurent also plies his trade abroad while serving members of the armed forces and on humanitarian missions that have taken him to Central America and the Caribbean.
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.
