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.
A posse of tooth clinicians staffs multiple area locations, all under the direction of Dr. Michael Heiland, named one of St. Louis Magazine's top dentists for three years in a row. The doctor and his dental hygienists perform preventative, cosmetic, and pediatric services ranging from traditional exams and x-rays to advanced teeth-whitening procedures. The team also upholds its mission statement by keeping patients informed, outfitting them with all the facts they need to maintain smiles and coveted high school titles, such as "Most Likely to Be Famous as Long as He or She Maintains Clean Teeth."
Face Gallery's licensed massage therapists and skin technicians work to provide clients with a personalized blend of treatments to promote both health and relaxation. Skilled in various modalities, the muscle-kneading specialists address specific health concerns, including high blood pressure, stress, and anxiety. In addition to increasing circulation and helping bodies release their environmental toxins through massages, the Face Gallery crew performs oxygen facials, waxing services, and eyelash extensions.
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.
Jeni gave up a career in business to pursue her passion for helping people overcome pain and emotional stress. She attained her massage therapist’s license and set up shop at Massage Therapy by Jeni, where she specializes in numerous modalities. Alongside standards such as Swedish, deep tissue, and pregnancy, Jeni offers Deluxe Detox Relaxation massages that use essential oils, foot wraps, and reflexology to keep the mind from spinning in circles chasing its own brain stem. For those experiencing pain, she uses hot and cold therapies—combined with therapeutic massage—to bring relief to the affected areas.
During her 10 years in practice, Dental Expressions owner and dentist Sonal Bhoot has done much more than care for teeth—she has been a caring member of her community. Dr. Bhoot participates in programs that help underprivileged children receive dental care and facilitates training for dental assistants in the area. She has worked in both inner-city and suburban settings, and she is skilled at connecting with people of all age groups. As a member of both the Leawood Chamber of Commerce and the Lee's Summit Chamber of Commerce, in addition to several local study clubs, Dr. Bhoot stays ahead of what's happening in her city and in the dental field.
Along with her associate, Dr. Mary Augustyn, Dr. Bhoot relies on state-of-the-art technology during each of her treatments. She carefully gauges the measurements needed for a root canal with an electronic apex locator and creates tooth-colored ceramic crowns in a single appointment with the CEREC 3-D system. She and her team detect subsurface cavities with the laser DiagnoDent pen, which also comes in handy for engraving one's name on a steel mug.
