Your First Visit
Choosing a dental office to look after your oral health and smile is a big decision, and we want you to feel confident in your choice of McKnight Signature Dental.
If you have any questions before your first visit, you can read through our frequently asked questions or give our dental practice a call. We are always happy to help.
Our Comprehensive New Patient Evaluation
When you arrive for your 90-minute appointment, we’ll review your paperwork and discuss the reasons for your visit. You can download your forms here.
Please bring them to your first appointment.
Please also bring any insurance cards, medication list, and a referral slip if you received one. Having everything handy will help your appointment go more smoothly.
You’ll experience little or no waiting before being escorted to a comfortable treatment room with a relaxing view.
Drs. McKnight or Konz will perform a comprehensive examination of your smile. We will check your teeth for decay, review the health of your gums, assess your bite, and perform an oral cancer screening.
We’ll also take pictures inside your mouth with an intraoral camera and then display the images on your chairside monitor so that we can explain our findings and treatment recommendations. Your dentist will work with you to personalize a treatment plan for your unique needs.
Emergency Dental Visits
While beginning with a full new patient evaluation is ideal, our dentists understand that sometimes life has other plans. If you live in Leawood, Overland Park, Kansas City, MO, or Prairie Village and need an emergency dentist, Dr. McKnight and Dr. Konz will be here when you need them most.
We reserve time in our daily schedules for patients who have a broken tooth, toothache, swelling, or a broken restoration. We make emergency dental patients a priority and provide treatment fast, often on the same day.
We Welcome New Patients
Our dental practice warmly welcomes new patients. If you have questions about what to expect during your first visit, we welcome you to get in touch. Our dental office is located on College Boulevard at Mission Road. We are happy to provide specific directions from your area. Just give us a call!
