First time visit, and the most pleasant dental appointment I have ever had! Everyone I dealt with was upbeat, pleasant, and knowledgeable. Newest technology equipment made x-rays, cleaning, etc more comfortable and less cumbersome. I highly recommend Dr. Busch!

I love NKC Dental! I always feel taken care of and never feel anxious about what is being done. They explain what’s being done, what needs done, and everything in between. I don’t know if I would trust anywhere else with my teeth. The renovations are beautiful and I don’t even feel like I’m at the dentist. I will continue to tell everyone I know about how much I love my dentist!
