Are you looking for a new dentist in Joplin? It can be challenging to find one for you and your family because of your many needs, different ages, and variety of schedules. On top of your day-to-day busyness, we understand that it can be hard to find a dental practice that you can be confident in. That’s why we’ve created a list of traits to look for, allowing you to find the best dentist in Joplin for you and your family.

Experience & Education

Dr. Young

When searching for a dentist, there is no substitute for education and experience. Dentists who have attended a good school and have years of experience will automatically be able to provide better dentistry for you and your family than those without. Additionally, dentists who have participated in continuing education courses will be up-to-date on the latest technology and techniques for more comfortable and efficient care.

Dr. Dan K. Young has 20 years of dental experience and he has also completed a variety of continuing education courses. These include orthodontics, full mouth rehabilitation, and most recently, dental implants. All of this knowledge and experience allows him to provide you and your loved ones with the wide-range of dental services that you may need.

Comprehensive Dental Services

That’s why we offer quality preventive, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry options in addition to these more advanced services:

Rave Patient Reviews

There is simply no substitute for good reviews. If you’re searching for a dentist online, be sure to check out what their real patients have had to say about them. This is also a great place to see what people think of the office environment, staff, and more. Dr. Young takes pride in the relationships that he builds with his patients, which is one of the many reasons why he has a 5-Star Google Reviews rating. While you can find more of our reviews on our website, here’s what some of our satisfied patients have to say:

“Amazing! Broke my front tooth at 12:30 and I’m pulling out of their parking lot at 4:30 with it fixed. They had never seen me before. I called right when I broke my tooth and they squeezed me in as an emergency visit. Dr. Young got me fixed up better than new. Highly recommend!”-John McDonald

“Very thorough and efficient. Communication between the hygienists and patient is excellent. Always informed on what is happening.”-David Welt

“My experience at Young Family & Cosmetic Dentistry is always 5 stars! The staff at this business are kind, fun and very professional! Dr. Young is a very good dentist and he truly cares about his patients.” -Nikki Goins

Focus of Practice

When searching for a dental practice, you can narrow it down by thinking about what you want your dentist to specialize in. Almost every dentist will offer preventive and restorative services, but if you have kids at home, you’ll want a family dentist. Or, if you want a more attractive smile, you may find a dentist who specializes in cosmetic dentistry. As our name may suggest, our focus is on family and cosmetics. Dr. Young has the experience and knowledge to treat patients of all ages, but he also has the necessary skills to provide beautiful smile makeovers and even orthodontics.
