If the way to your heart is through your stomach, your mouth is the enamel-buttressed gatehouse whose toothy battlements defend against sugary sieges and cavity catapults. New customers can fortify their defenses with today’s Groupon: for $49, you’ll get an exam, cleaning, and any necessary x-rays from Scott Craven, DDS (an up to $294 value), whose Overland Park office is located less than 30 minutes south of downtown Kansas City.
Having earned his doctorate from the University of Missouri at Kansas City School of Dentistry, as well as an undergraduate degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management from Mizzou, Dr. Craven is able to provide thorough tooth care with all the attentive hospitality of a good concierge. After cleaning your chompers and checking them for miniature civilizations, Dr. Craven will take a standard x-ray as well as a panoramic x-ray, if necessary. He is a member of the American Dental Association, Kansas Dental Association, Fifth District Dental Society, and Academy of General Dentistry, so you can rest assured that Dr. Craven is up to date on the most effective and advanced dental practices, such as the prevention of cavities via mild time travel.
By improving your mouth health, you can improve your overall health; research suggests a link between periodontal diseases and other chronic conditions, which include diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and Alzheimer’s. A cleaning might not cure hula-hoop rash or sweaty nose, but broken fillings and cavities can't hide from Dr. Craven's expert eye.
