Lawson MO Dentist Office First Visit

We know switching dentists or making an appointment after a long time away from the dentist makes most people a little anxious. At Kanning Dental in Lawson and Richmond, MO, our goal is to take that anxiety away. From the friendly and welcoming way you are greeted at the front door to the way we kindly seat you in a timely fashion, we want you to feel relaxed and at ease when visiting either of our local dental offices.

At your first visit, we focus on your health and comfort. After your checkup and teeth cleaning are complete, the doctor will spend time with you discussing your X-rays and photos. We will work together creating your own individual treatment plan to maintain or restore your dental health- and your best smile.

Your First Visit: What to Expect

Your initial visit will last approximately 1 to 1 1/2 hours- we promise the time will fly by! During your first visit you can expect:

  • A thorough review of your medical and dental history
  • Necessary X-rays of your mouth and teeth with digital technology
  • A complimentary 3D scan of your teeth and mouth
  • A comprehensive head, neck and mouth cancer screening
  • Intraoral photos of your teeth and smile
  • A periodontal screening for signs of gum disease
  • Oral cancer screening

We will conclude your visit with a dental cleaning unless more comprehensive therapy is needed. We provide general, cosmetic and restorative dental services to the residents and families of Lawson and many surrounding communities. Our goal is to become a partner in your overall health care, helping you and your family to maintain healthy smiles through preventive care and addressing any problems with dentistry that fits your needs and your budget.

Affordable Family Dentistry

Dr. Kanning, Dr. Tippin, Dr. Fawks and our staff understand the financial concerns that many patients have when considering their dental care. We participate with several major PPO insurance plans and accept most dental insurance. We will file your claim at the time of your visit and work with you to ensure you receive the dentistry you need or desire through careful planning and financing options.
