      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’ve been going to North Kansas City dental for a long time. Dr. Bush is an amazing dentist. The newly remodeled facilities are clean and modern. They have massaging dental chairs and amazing TVs. Dr. Bush’s staff is warm and inviting.

      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!

      The staff is absolutely wonderful and they’re so fun to talk to because they have such positive energy. They’re all incredibly kind and will walk you through everything to make sure you’re feeling comfortable and safe. The environment is clean, the technology that they use is incredible, and the procedures are professional and quick. I’ll never go to another dentist! 10/10!
