Welcome to your new Dentist Independence MO!!

Welcome to your new dentist!! Independence MO is the fourth largest city in Missouri with a population of over 117,000. There are many dentists in the area to choose from, so I would like to take the time to tell you why Dr. Thomas L. Anderson and Associates is the right choice for you.

Collage_Independence_2-resized-600.jpgWith four dentists and three locations, our dental offices truly strive to make going to the dentist as convenient and pleasant as possible for all of our patients. Our Independence location can be found in the Diagnostic Imaging building, at the corner of 291 and 40 Highway. Being so close to all major highways, our location is great for people living in the Independence, Blue Springs, and Lee’s Summit areas. We have lunch time appointments available, limited Saturday appointments, and work to find appointment times for even the busiest of schedules. If you are looking for a dental team that feels your time is just as important as ours, then Dr. Thomas L. Anderson and Associates is the best dentist Independence MO has to offer.

We treat our office like our home, and all our patients are our guests and try to make you as comfortable as possible. When you come for your appointment… refreshments are offered, we take your jacket and bags, and offer constant attention. Your time is important, and Dr. Thomas L. Anderson and Associates is like no other Dentist Independence MO has ever had! In some offices you are left alone in a room wondering when the doctor will see you, but we make sure your appointment is fast, pain-free, and as pleasant as possible. We are a family dental office, and our staff treats you like family. We would never recommend treatment for a patient that we wouldn’t recommend for our own families.      

We are confident there is no other dentist in Independence MO has that spends as much time researching your personal insurance plans. Many dentists believe it is the patient’s responsibility to learn how their insurance works, and they spend no time finding out if the procedure they are preforming is even covered by the patient’s insurance. This could potentially leave the patient with a large bill, and there is nothing worse than an unexpected blow to your finances! At our office we know how difficult understanding a policy can be, especially with each plan being as unique as the person it covers. For example, if you and one of your friends are both covered by MetLife, but work for different companies your policies can be as different as night and day. We find out all the information we can from each of our patient’s policies, so we can answer any questions or concerns they have. This is just one of the many ways we go above and beyond for our patients.

Collage_comfort_revised-resized-600.jpgThe services we offer to our patients is gentle and cutting edge, using only the best labs the area has to offer, and our dentists in Independence MO have a light touch keeping you from returning home sore. We strive to provide a dental experience that surpasses your expectations for a dental office. We provide complementary paraffin hand dips, a variety of movies and music videos to view during your appointment, and many patient promotions and games throughout the year. You can enter our pumpkin carving contest in October, and win up to $200 and AMC movie passes! We always enjoy the talent and creativity our patients bring to our Scary Smile pumpkin carving contest. Also in December we collect for Harvesters; for every item a patient brings in we enter them in a raffle to win a credit on their account to help cover their dental needs. We are proud of this event because it gives us a chance to help our community’s hungry, while helping our patients pay for their needed dental treatments. Even our children’s toy chest outshines any other dentist Independence MO holds. Our toy chests are not filled with boring stickers, and spinning tops. We give our kiddos the toys they really want like water guns, kites, silly putty, and bubbles! We keep our kids treasure chest so stocked with fun toys, that even the older kids go running to get their prize after their appointment!!

Our four gentle dentists in Independence MO, Dr. Thomas L. Anderson, Dr. Ellis Thigpen, Dr. Darren Perry, and Dr. Jason Beckman believe in creating and maintaining optimal dental hygiene. With their skills combined there is rarely a need for us to send our patients out to a specialist. Our doctors practice general and restorative dentistry, correct malocclusion using invisalign; they place traditional and mini dental implants, cosmetic veneers, and even the most difficult endodontic treatments. This is a great perk for our patients because seldom do they want another dentist’s care after they have grown to trust us.

At Dr. Thomas L. Anderson and Associates we bring a friendly and relaxing feel to dentistry, and succeed in making even the highest anxiety of patients feel at ease. Call and make an appointment with us today!
