What Our Clients Say About Us

  • "I am a person that is terrified of going to dentists. TERRIFIED. Anxiety... Have had some really horrible dentists in my life. Anyway, I've had some cavities recently and the Dr is very attentive of how stressed out I get. He always makes sure I'm numb enough and checks how I'm doing. I will continue to go here."

  • "Joel Lemense is an ethical dentist who I would highly recommend. He is a total professional, caring about his patients, and an expert when it comes to the work he does. His staff is caring and considerate and really gets to know you as a person. I would recommend Dr. Lemense without reservation."
    - April B.
  • "Great dentist, very honest, direct, and open about your options for any given procedure. The staff is friendly and helpful and always straightforward about costs, scheduling, and any issues I've had. Dr. Lemense helped me form a detailed plan to fix my long-neglected teeth and was extremely supportive and informative during the entire process. Great dentist, great guy, great team. I highly recommend this practice and hope he sticks around in the KC area for many years to come!"
    - Dan J.
  • "Dr. Lemense and his team are fantastic! I have struggled to find a dentist that makes me feel comfortable and heard. They checked in with me throughout my procedures and paused when I need time to relax my jaw or take a deep breath. Very trauma informed and considerate! Couldn't recommend them more. They are not in-network with my insurance but I gladly pay them a little extra to make sure I am comfortable!"
