Let the Dentist Be Your Guide

At the office of Dr. John Humphrey Jr., our mission is to treat our patients as we would treat our families.  We are concerned with our patients’ oral health as well as their total body health. Our patients are the heart of our practice and the reason we are here. At all times our patients will be treated with respect, dignity and compassion. All our professionals maintain the highest levels of accreditation and pursue ongoing education to stay abreast of the latest trends in dentistry.

This certification is for the Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique, something Dr. Humphrey feels very strongly about, protecting patients and his team! KC Dental Works is also one of the only dental offices in the KC area to provide DENTAL OZONE THERAPY, a treatment option that can enhance the outcome in all aspects of dentistry. He is very excited about his involvement with the Eco Dentistry Association, an organization dedicated to helping dentistry become a more environmentally friendly profession. In our current location, Dr. Humphrey was able to incorporate many new technologies that decrease the impact of the office on the world around us.
