Our Periodontists are Diplomates of the American Board of Periodontology and Dental Implant Surgery. We are the only Board Certified Periodontal group in Kansas City and Missouri and we will review your complete medical and dental history with you. It’s extremely important for your periodontist to know if you are taking any medications or being treated for any condition that can affect your periodontal care. We will complete an in-depth and thorough oral examination to measure for bone loss, loose teeth, bite, oral cancer screening, recession and other signs of periodontal (gum) disease. Radiographs and intra-oral photographs will be taken to evaluate the soft tissues and bone levels.
Please Note: All patients under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation appointment.

We are blessed to have patients who have complemented our signature services and care on Google. Here are a few reviews:
We had a fantastic experience here. The staff were knowledgeable and friendly, the facility was modern and clean, and most important of all, kid-friendly.
"Before I had my surgery my jaw seemed misaligned and my top teeth would bite down on my tongue that was sticking out of the side of my mouth. The surgery has corrected the problem and I am so grateful for Dr. Thomas delivering a beautiful smile. He can correct any problem, don’t hesitate call immediately."
