Why People Love Leawood Dental

Hannah P.
Dr. Joliff is the best! I have a terrible fear of the dentist but had to go get a filling replaced. Decided to try a new dentist and I’m so glad I went here! He did not disappoint! Him and his staff made me feel at ease and were very sensitive to the fact that I’m a high anxiety patient. They made sure I was comfortable every step of the way! Replacing my filling was quick and painless. Will be going to him from now on for all my dental work! Thanks again.
Adrienne M.
I love this place! They are very thorough and everyone is very kind. This office is very flexible with pricing, and I really like that they have their own insurance. If you need work done they are not pushy but very honest with what you need. It is really hard to find a good dentist. So, I would definitely recommend them.
Patty R.
This was the most effective cleaning I’ve had. And with no pain or discomfort. Thanks Dental Hygienist, Austin. The office operated very efficiently with no waiting and no mystery about the charges. The billing details were explained in writing before I decided whether to go ahead with an extra treatment. Dr. Joliff was knowledgeable and skilled.
Cathy C.

Jallisa L.
The experience here was amazing! It was a double book for my toddler and myself and it was my son’s first time. The hygienist was patient and the atmosphere was very pleasant. I was most nervous about my toddler being antsy, but everyone was so welcoming and took great care of us!

Excellent all around. Very thorough and efficient. They explain everything beforehand and check what the cost will be if it’s more than what insurance covers. Rachel (dental hygienist) is WONDERFUL!

The Importance of Dental Checkups

At Leawood Dental, we emphasize preventive care, helping you and your family avoid the discomfort and expense of complex dental issues. Our goal is to detect problems early when they are easier and less costly to treat.

Children’s Preventive Care

Pediatric dental care is vital for laying the foundation for a lifetime of healthy smiles. We create a fun, friendly, and educational environment for our young patients, teaching them the importance of good oral hygiene habits from an early age.

What to Expect During Your Dental Checkup

Professional Cleaning

Our skilled dental hygienists perform a thorough cleaning to remove plaque and tartar that regular brushing and flossing might miss. This cleaning not only leaves your teeth feeling incredibly clean but also helps prevent gum disease and tooth decay.

Full Examination

Our dentists conduct a detailed examination of your teeth, gums, and mouth. We look for any signs of decay, gum disease, and other oral health issues. This comprehensive evaluation is key to maintaining your dental health and catching potential problems early.

Digital X-Rays

We use the latest digital X-ray technology to get a deeper look at your oral health. Digital X-rays are a vital tool in diagnosing issues that aren't visible during a regular examination, such as impacted teeth, abscesses, cysts, tumors, and decay between the teeth.

Oral Cancer Screening

Oral cancer screening is an essential part of your dental checkup. Our team uses advanced screening techniques to look for signs of oral cancer, which is crucial for early detection and successful treatment.

Customized Care Plans

Each patient's oral health needs are unique. At Leawood Dental, we believe in personalized care. Following your checkup, we'll discuss any findings and create a customized care plan to address your specific needs and goals.

Commitment to Comfort and Technology

We understand that visiting the dentist can be daunting for some. Our team is dedicated to making your experience as comfortable and stress-free as possible. We use state-of-the-art equipment and techniques to ensure your visit is efficient, effective, and pleasant.
