Experience Passionate Care From a Team Who Invests in Your Smile

At Pierce & Knight Family Dentistry, we believe that knowledge is essential to delivering excellent dental care. That’s why your first visit with us will consist of several steps. Spending a little extra time allows us to find out more about you and your oral health. Here is how your appointment will work:

  • One of our skilled registered hygienists will take any needed X-rays, examine your teeth and gums, perform periodontal charting, and log any other crucial information. Since we use digital X-rays, you are exposed to much less radiation than traditional X-rays.
  • Then they will clean and polish your teeth, making sure to reach all the nooks and crannies of your mouth that you might miss at home.
  • Next, you’ll meet with either Dr. Pierce or Dr. Knight for a 30-minute new patient consultation. This meeting will help them understand your oral health and diagnose any specific oral concerns you have. You’ll also have the chance to ask any questions about us or your oral health.
  • By the end of your appointment, you’ll have personalized treatment options based on your smile needs and goals. We’ll make sure you have the information you need to make wise choices about your dental care.

To expedite your first exam and cleaning, we ask that you complete your new patient forms before your appointment. This will allow us to spend more time with you and less time doing paperwork.

Visit us every six months for regular dental cleanings and exams in Lenexa. Call us today at 913-251-9683 to schedule your next appointment, or schedule online. If you’re a new patient, you’ll receive a free Sonicare toothbrush!

Common Questions About Dental Cleanings & Exams

How long does a dental cleaning and exam take?

The condition of your teeth may affect the time required for your cleaning and exam. If you haven’t had a professional cleaning in years, our hygienists will likely need more time than usual to remove hardened tartar from your teeth. Plus, you may have more issues you’d like to address with one of our dentists during your exam. That said, we can usually complete these essential services in about an hour.

How often do I need a dental cleaning and exam?

For the best results, you should have your teeth cleaned and examined every six months. Biannual visits will keep your teeth and gums free of disease. It also enables our dentists to discover any problems while they are small and simple to treat. Plus, exams provide a regular opportunity to discuss your smile challenges and goals with you.

How soon after my cleaning can I eat?

Luckily, there’s no reason to wait to eat after your cleaning. However, your teeth and gums may be a little sensitive. So, you may want to avoid extremely hot, cold, or acidic food and beverages for a few hours. Be sure to ask your dentist if you have any concerns about what you can eat or drink after your appointment.
