Living and working in down town Kansas City can make errands like going to the grocery store, or visiting your dentist feel like an inconvenience. There is limited parking, and many parking lots cost money to leave your car, for even an hour.
Let’s face it; nobody wants to pay for parking to visit their dentist! Downtown Kansas City dentist Thomas L. Anderson and Associates validates parking in his Commerce Bank location located on 10th and Walnut Street. But the convenience our new streetcars will bring our patients is getting us excited!
Over the last 30 years there have been a lot of changes in Kansas City’s downtown area. The community has transformed from an urban break down to a complete revitalization. Things began to take a turn for the better in 2007 with the opening of the Kansas City Power and Light District. This is a nine block district comprised of upscale restaurants, entertainment facilities, and boutique shops. Next the Sprint Center came to town bringing with it concerts, Disney on Ice events and sports tournaments. Then our world class Kaufmann Center came bringing our city musicals, Ballets and Operas. Now finally in the spring of 2016 our city officially has its own streetcar!
The Kansas City Streetcar has already been nicknamed, “RideKC” They started the testing for RideKC just outside Dr. Anderson’s downtown Kansas City dentist office. A crowd formed to watch the streetcar test one chilly November morning in 2015. It was so exciting to see, when the streetcar started moving everyone in the streets began cheering! Voters in downtown Kansas City approved funding for a two mile streetcar line in December of 2012. It is to run between theRiver Market and Union Station, but the possibility of expanding it south to the Country Club Plaza is already being studied. This wonderful new development is going to make crossing town to come to our downtown Kansas City dentist office a breeze.
No parking dilemmas, no worries! Dr. Anderson’s team has three friendly associate dentists at his practice, Dr. Ellis Thigpen, Dr. Darren Perry, and Dr. Jason Beckman. All four of our dentists travel to all three of our locations around the Kansas City Metro area. Making it easy to get in to see your dentist no matter what part of town you might be in. They have been practicing in the Arcade of the Commerce Bank Building for over twenty years.
These highly trained dentists perform all aspects of dentistry from simple to complex. They are proficient in root canal therapy, oral surgery, implants, cosmetic crown and veneer work, and are Premier Preferred Invisalign providers. With all of these services provided there is rarely a need for his patients to seek care from a specialty office.
This downtown Kansas City dentist staff is committed to making each patient’s visit as fun and relaxing as possible. His office provides paraffin hand wax treatments, a variety of movies and music videos to view during the appointment, and a large toy bin for the kids to take home fun prizes after their appointments.

Dr. Anderson states, “As a kid growing up, going to the dentist was not a pleasant experience and I have set out to change the way people feel about visiting the dentist. First, we have friendly dentists and a top notch dental team that provides first rate care. Secondly, we designed our dental offices to be more comfortable, less clinic feeling; so the patient starts the visit feeling relaxed as soon as they walk through our doors. All of this helps to create a relaxing environment built to provide the best dental care available. One of the things I’m most proud of is many of our patients say that we make going to the dentist fun!”
