Canary Dental - ABOUT US
I’ve always loved my hometown and wanted our new name to be unique and identify with Atchison’s history. In 1921 Amelia Earhart bought her first aircraft, a yellow biplane, that she nicknamed “Canary”!
Amelia’s courage, determination, and adventurous spirit continues to be apart of this town, and sheds light on the joy we want to share at Canary Dental. We want our team and patients to feel welcomed in our cheerful and positive office. Through identifying with Atchison’s historic connection to aviation and the bright outlook we have for our patient's smiles, we created the name, Canary Dental!

Let us find the best possible treatment for you!
Tooth decay affects the majority of people in their lifetime. White fillings are bonded into the tooth after the decay is removed. When the filling is large or teeth are cracked, a porcelain crown is created to cover and protect the tooth. If teeth are missing, bridges and implant crowns can give a patient a fixed solution.
Bruxism, or teeth grinding, affects millions of children and adults in the US. Left untreated, bruxism can be detrimental to teeth. Bruxism can also be an indicator of sleep apnea and poor sleep habits. TMJ disorder, or TMD, is a dysfunction of one or both jaw joints. These painful and destructive disorders can be treated with appliances and botox that protect from further damage.
Partial dentures are custom designed to fit around remaining natural teeth and fill in the spaces where teeth are missing. Complete dentures are designed when a patient is missing all of their teeth on the upper or lower jaw. Both partial & complete dentures can be supported by implants to give a more secure fit.
Our goal is to optimize your smile's health and beauty. However, some dental infections and cracks can severely damage a tooth and removal is required. Infections and extractions are treated as necessary and options are given to replace the missing teeth.
