Artistry for your Smile

New Patient Forms

Experienced Dentist in Independence, MO

At Hanson Dentistry, we understand the importance of good dental health and what having a friendly, conscientious, qualified dentist means to our patients. Robert N. Hanson, DDS, offers dental care for the entire family and proudly serves patients from Independence, Blue Springs, Lee’s Summit, Kansas City, and throughout eastern Jackson County. We go to great lengths with new patients to determine the proper treatment for each situation, whether it be basic dental care or a total smile makeover. By offering take-home tooth-care kits, we make sure you can maintain your oral health between visits to our office.

High Level of Service

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

New Technology

Thanks to the latest advances in computer-aided design (CAD-CAM) technology, we offer same day crowns. We can start and finish a crown in approximately three 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 is noticed on X-rays. The latest technology we use is cone beam computed tomography (CBCT), which produces dramatic 3-D radiographic images that significantly improve diagnosis and treatment planning.

Curb Sleep Apnea

Studies show that 18 million Americans have Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), but 86 percent of those potentially life-threatening conditions go undiagnosed. At Hanson Dentistry, we can diagnose and treat many OSA conditions. Proper attention to your OSA may not only significantly improve your sleep experience (and that of those who sleep nearby) but may also dramatically reduce risk to your health.

Prevention is Better

We offer preventive dentistry, including oral cancer screenings, pit and fissure sealants, fluoride treatments, light-induced cavity detection, night guards, and athletic mouth guards. We also provide oral hygiene instructions and interactive education to all patients.
