Joplin Family Dentistry

Dentistry for the Whole Family

Dr Dan “Kip” Young and the team at Young Family & Cosmetic Dentistry focus on providing the highest quality dental care to patients of all ages. It is not uncommon for us to have patients that represent several generations of the same family. We help kids build the good habits that will lead to a lifetime of healthy teeth. We focus on early treatment orthodontic issues specifically focused on minimizing the need for more extensive orthodontics in later years. For our grown-up patients, we have a wide array of general and cosmetic procedures to both strengthen and beautify teeth, including porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, all-porcelain crowns, and a full range of orthodontics and restorative dentistry treatments.

Preventative Dentistry

The best way to have a beautiful smile that will last is to keep your teeth and gums healthy. At Young Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we provide regular teeth cleanings and exams so that we can catch problems early in their development, instead of having to do more serious dental work later on. We work with patients of all ages to help them develop the habits and practices that will keep their teeth strong and looking good.

Healthy gums are the cornerstone upon which good dental health is built. Through regular exams and cleanings, we’ll work with you to make sure your gums stay healthy. We also provide our patients with a range of treatments for gum disease. Known in its early stages as gingivitis, and characterized by swelling and bleeding of the gums, gum disease can be treated in a variety of ways. It does not matter whether your gum disease is in its early stages or more advanced, we have treatments that can help.

The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends that you visit your family dentist for a checkup a minimum of two times each year.

Restorative

Young Family & Cosmetic Dentistry offers a full range of restorative procedures. Restorative work ranges from simple fillings, inlays and onlays to implants for total tooth replacements.
