Hanson, DDS, offers dental care for the entire family, proudly serving patients from Independence, Blue Springs, Lee’s Summit, and Kansas City.

High level of service

We provide a relaxing, friendly, and caring atmosphere for our patients. We offer the same level of service for routine exams as for more intricate procedures, providing personalized attention to all your dental needs. Our mission is to help the people we serve achieve a higher level of self-worth by enhancing their appearance, comfort, function, and oral health.

New technology

For your convenience, we offer the possibility of same-day crowns. The latest advances in computer-aided design (CAD-CAM) technology enable us to start and finish a needed crown in approximately 3 hours. In addition, we use low-radiation digital radiographs, laser-assisted soft-tissue procedures, and image-fluorescence cameras for early detection of decay before it can be noticed on X-rays. The latest technology we are using is cone beam computed tomography (CBCT), which produces dramatic 3-D radiographic images that greatly improve diagnostic and treatment planning.

Prevention is better

We offer preventive dentistry, including oral-cancer screenings, pit and fissure sealants, fluoride treatment, light-induced cavity detection, night guards, and athletic mouth guards. We also provide oral-hygiene instructions and interactive education to all patients. For a caring and understanding dentist, call Hanson Dentistry.
