We feel an enormous amount of pride when we see how happy and comfortable our patients are, knowing that we always provide honest, high-quality service.

As the saying goes, “Growing old is mandatory, but growing up is optional.” We welcome our young patients and patients who stay young at heart.

Our Core Values

At Topeka Dentistry, we try to reflect our values and beliefs through each interaction. We enjoy having long-term patients who have grown up with us from childhood who now bring their own families to see us. 

We dedicate our focus on honesty and integrity when it comes to personal interactions, recommending dental procedures, communication, and the quality of our patient education we provide. Our time spent with you is yours; we never rush patients out the door to make room for another appointment. We want patients to feel confident and well-informed in their decisions, as well as engaged in their oral health.

Our dental services are comprehensive, and we can provide many treatments in-house. We would never recommend unnecessary dental procedures, and we often offer alternative therapies for our patients to consider. 

We are dedicated to providing high-quality, reliable dentistry that our patients and dental staff come to rely on. None of this would be possible without our incredible team. We work together as a cohesive unit that puts patient needs first. We have a lot of fun together, and we love engaging our patients to have fun with us, too. 

The best way to provide our full experience is by devoting ourselves to our patient’s well-being. By being compassionate, kind, warm, and open—we create an environment that fosters questions, conversation, and interaction. Even our youngest patients appreciate our genuine concern, which is why many of our patients have been with us for life. 

At Topeka Dentistry, we’re known for providing trustworthy and ethical services. We don’t ignore or rush questions; instead, we like to engage in conversation about your oral health. We are proud of the reputation we have built and hope that our sincerity and integrity shine through.
