My visit with Dr. Goodman was top notch! From the telephone call with the receptionist to the dental treatment and leaving, I received superb care. The facility was clean, had current technology, and Dr. Goodman explained everything to me while taking time to make a personal connection with me as a new patient. I was able to receive full care in one day. I walked away with a beautiful smile, thanks to Dr. Goodman and his team! I highly recommend this facility if you are looking for professionalism and state of the art care! Thank you Dr. Goodman and staff for meeting my dental care needs. View On Google

I have been going to this office for approx 2 years now and absolutely love it. I had been going to the same dentist for roughly 20 years and decided maybe it was time to leave the pediatric office I was still using (I’m almost 30)! So I was nervous. But from the receptionists to the hygienists to Dr Goodman everyone has been so kind and friendly. They are also very flexible and easy to get ahold of. Love the office, hopefully I can go here for 20+ years! View On Google

Featured Services

Our Dentist Can Treat Your Entire Family

Dentistry needs tend to change as we age. Because we offer the full scope of dentistry services, we can treat every member of your family.


For children, we focus on teaching the proper way to clean teeth and help them become comfortable visiting the dentist.


Model of teeth with braces
Dental care for teens typically involves orthodontics and evaluation of the wisdom teeth.

With pre-teens and teens, the emphasis on dental education remains important, but orthodontic treatment and monitoring the development of the wisdom teeth are especially important factors that we focus on for this age group. Of course, as with patients of all ages, we routinely check for common dental problems such as cavities and gingivitis in children and teens.


As patients reach adulthood, we encourage them to continue to attend dental check-ups at our Kansas City, MO, practice every six months. These appointments allow us to remove built-up plaque and tartar from the teeth and evaluate the health of the teeth and gums.

The most common restorative treatments that we perform on adults are placement of dental fillings and dental crowns. It is also common for individuals in this age group to consider cosmetic treatments to improve the appearance of their smile. Porcelain veneers and teeth whitening are some of the most popular cosmetic treatments.

Senior patients typically require more involved restorative dentistry treatment to restore oral health, function, and comfort.

Seniors also have more specific needs when it comes to dental care. At this age, it is common for individuals to experience more serious dental problems. A lifetime of wear and tear on the teeth, smoking, or poor dental habits can begin to take a toll on the teeth. In addition, seniors may have medical conditions that can increase the risk of dental problems. For example, medical conditions such as diabetes can make individuals more prone to gum disease, while issues such as arthritis can make it difficult to brush and floss properly.

Whether seniors have missing teeth, worn teeth that are extremely sensitive, or gum disease, we offer effective treatments that can restore your oral health, function, and comfort.

Benefits of Family Dental Care

One great benefit of having your entire family come to our practice for dental care is that it gives us greater insight into the family's medical history and any genetic links that can increase the risk of future dental problems for other family members.

Can Porcelain Veneers Really Transform My Smile in Less Than Two Weeks?

Porcelain veneers

Yes, porcelain veneers can make your teeth appear straighter, whiter, and more uniform in just a week or two. This treatment involves three appointments at our Kansas City, MO, office. The final step is the placement of tooth-shaped prosthetics on the front teeth. The veneers cover the front of the tooth to address cosmetic imperfections such as:

  • Stains
  • Chips or cracks 
  • Gaps between the teeth
  • Mild crookedness
  • Twisted teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Disproportionately small teeth
