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.

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.
Naturally White Teeth Whitening lifts dental stains with a specialized gel made with natural ingredients. The gel is gentle enough for sensitive teeth, and vitamin E oil keeps gums and lips moisturized throughout treatments. The procedure's gentle touch doesn't lessen its effectiveness, though. Blue LED light beams activate the gel, lightening the hue of natural teeth, veneers, crowns, or porcelain artifacts an average of 8–12 shades.
Dr. Shelly Galvin and her team of skilled hygienists and dental assistants enhance oral brilliance with Zoom! whitening treatments. During the two-hour session, hygienists fortify sensitive lips and gums, leaving only unabashed enamel exposed to professional-grade, light-activated Zoom! bleaching gel for three 15-minute treatments. A provided film captivates eyes and ears as specially designed LED light rays shine down upon dulled teeth to break up stains caused by wine, coffee, and crayon consumption. Posttreatment, patients wield grins that shine up to nine shades brighter, just strong enough to temporarily blind a traffic camera.
Weather-worn logs and steadfast chinking dating from the 1800s envelop the renovated private rooms of a rustic log cabin, where today Dr. Steven C. Mingos and his team of expert colleagues settle oral frontiers with a modern arsenal of lasers, x-rays, and other technologies. Digital images of panoramic or bitewing x-rays zip onto flat-screen TVs, and laser detectors hone in on latent cavities undetectable by x-rays or technicians' thorough examinations. As petite intraoral cameras magnify mouths up to 40 times during complicated procedures such as root canals and restoring implants or veneers, sunshine streams though a series of skylights, which helps cosmetic techs to whiten chompers to natural hues and create convincing single-tooth implants, full denture sets, and fake IDs for lingering baby teeth.
