FAQ

Does the dentist take continuing education courses and stay up to date with the latest techniques?2019-06-20T17:50:10+00:00

One of our core values at Dental Elements is personal and professional growth. All of our team members take continuing education classes regularly to stay up to date on current trends and techniques.

What kind of dental technology does the dentist use?2019-06-20T17:50:10+00:00

At Dental Elements we take pride in staying up to date with advances in dental technology. Dr. Meggison has a laser that he uses at the Shawnee office. He is often able to restore teeth without giving an injection. Our patients love this option. We also have a machine that makes crowns in a single visit. This replaces the need for temporary crowns and expedites the entire process.

Does the dentist see children as well as adults?2019-06-20T17:50:11+00:00

We are a family dental practice and see both children and adults.

Is the dentist accepting new patients?2019-06-20T17:50:11+00:00

Both the Shawnee and Leawood offices are accepting new patients. Contact us HERE for information.

How much is a filling, crown or extraction?2019-06-20T17:50:11+00:00

It is very difficult to give a quote over the phone for any type of dental treatment. There are usually several options for treating a dental problem, and the doctor will need to evaluate the tooth prior to determining the best option. Sometimes a diagnosis will also include a fee for the examination, x-rays and additional diagnostic testing. Sometimes a patient thinks they just need a crown and the tooth requires a root canal prior to placing the crown. Likewise, there are several types and degree of difficulty of tooth extractions. At Dental Elements we do try to do the most conservative and least costly treatment for our patients as well as treatment that will last for a long time. We would be happy to see you at either of our locations for an examination and quote for dental treatment.

How long does the first appointment last?2019-06-20T17:50:11+00:00

If you are seeing the hygienist the new patient appointment usually takes about 90 minutes. At that visit the hygienist will do a comprehensive examination, take any x-rays that are needed, clean your teeth if you need a routine cleaning, give home care instructions and discuss any treatment that is needed. This is a “get to know you appointment” and lasts longer than a regular cleaning appointment which is 60 minutes long. If you are scheduled for an emergency examination with the doctor, this usually takes about 60 minutes and maybe longer if treatment is completed on the same day.

Why Dental Elements?2019-06-20T17:50:11+00:00

There is no better dentist or dental office environment than what you will find with Dr. Meggison, and his team at Dental Elements.

Through multiple office locations and a network of professionals, they are able to meet the needs of patients in a way that most other family practices cannot. With advanced technology, affordability, and access to care, as well as their commitment to giving back to the community, Dental Elements continues to be the best choice when seeking out dental care in both the Shawnee and Leawood areas.

Dr. Meggison has started using laser technology to complete many of the restorative procedures at the Shawnee office. He is able to do fillings often times without having to anesthetize the patient. He has done advanced training that enables him to use the laser to perform a procedure to painlessly reduce and even eliminate snoring, making a restful night possible.
Say goodbye to multi visit crown appointments and temporary crowns, as most crowns are completed in a single visit.

His commitment to improving lives shines through his one-of-a-kind all inclusive membership plan. He has guided hundreds of patients through what seemed like impossible and unaffordable journeys to a happier and healthier smile through the Freedom Plan. Designed by Dr. Meggison, this plan helps to take away any and all barriers that normally prevent people from getting the care they need.

Dr. Meggison believes that it is important to give back to the communities in which he serves. This past year, Dental Elements was a sponsor at both the Leawood Chamber “At The Tee” Golf Tournament and Shawnee Chamber Golf Tournament as well as sponsoring events at Ray Marsh Elementary, St. Joseph Elementary, National Orange Popsicle Week, and The Shawnee Barbeque.

At Dental Elements, we value patient relationships and from the moment you walk through the door, your care is our priority.
