For Patients

Welcome to Kanning Dental. Our family and cosmetic dental offices are located in Lawson and Richmond, MO. Dr. Nelson Kanning has created a dental practice with your patient experience in mind and we are pleased to offer what we call the Kanning Dental Difference in both of our locations.


What is the Kanning Dental Difference?

At Kanning Dental, dentistry is our passion. We also believe that a visit with us should be pleasant- even fun. From the moment you enter our office and become a member of our extended dental care family, we are committed to the health, comfort, and beauty of your natural smile. We make every effort to provide the best possible patient experience so that we can see you smile, including a good joke or two! Our goal is to offer you the highest standard of dental care in a friendly, compassionate manner.

Our offices are equipped with the latest technology so that you and your family can experience dental care that is less invasive, more accurate and produces predictable and lasting results. From digital impressions and x-rays to same-day dental crowns and in-office 3-D scanning for more advanced diagnostics and treatment planning, we are dedicated to evolving our practice and improving your dental care experience and outcomes.
