"Okay, so I have been going to KFA dental for going on almost a year now. I was waiting to write a review after getting a bunch of fillings. Because I'm being honest, I was terrified of going back to the dentist. But before I delve into that, I want to talk about how amazing and kind everybody in the building is. The ladies at the front desk are SUPER professional, no question is a stupid question to them. I have never seen them rude to anyone before. You know how sometimes in some medical practices, you can have amazing healthcare professionals, yet the front desk staff is rude and it kills your overall experience? NOT THIS PLACE WHATSOEVER. Moving on, my first visit they did a bunch of X-rays and laid out to me what work needs to be done and explained in lay-mans terms what I need done and why I need it. Dental work is expensive, so you can always go on a payment plan and slowly pay everything off. (also, I have a few fees I still have to pay, and they don't seem to harass you about paying them off quickly) During my cleaning the dental hygienist was super professional and made sure I didn't feel any pain during it since I haven't had a cleaning done in a while. They give you an option to put the anesthetic ointment on your gums. During my fillings, I went in terrified I would feel the novacane needle, they were really good at letting me know what I was going to expect and that I was numb enough before injecting the needle. They gave me a lot of good tips and tricks to cleaning and caring for my teeth and I would honestly recommend people I know to go to KFA dental. If you are still worried about covid, and want to know if there's precautions still put in place, the dentist and hygienist still wear their masks in the there all day, and they ask that you wear a mask going into the building as well. Anybody scrolling reviews to see if they are worth going to, I would say definitively go! It is worth it here."- F.F. / Google / Aug 16, 2022
"I’ve been with KFA dental for about 6 years now and the only regret I have is that I didn’t know about them sooner! Everyone there is very professional, caring, and thorough. The office is very nice, clean, and they have all high tech equipment. Everyone there takes their time to get to know you. The doctors, dental assistants, etc. explain everything to you so you feel as comfortable as possible with whatever procedure you’re having done. They never make you feel silly for any questions that you have. I used to have such anxiety going to the dentist and now I know I am in such good hands with the KFA family. They’re wonderful. Can’t say enough about them!"- C.C. / Google / Jul 12, 2022

Can I Get a Full-Mouth Reconstruction?
You might be a good candidate for a full-mouth reconstruction if you have lost a few teeth or have several teeth with larger fillings that need to be replaced. You might also be a good candidate if you have teeth with significant decay or have cracked, broken, or badly worn-down teeth. Dental ailments or a hereditary disorder that causes teeth to never develop, teeth that are too small, or translucent or discolored teeth would all require extensive restoration. Some people find themselves wanting a full-mouth reconstruction to replace old crowns, or just to improve the comfort of their mouth in general.
How Will My Full-Mouth Reconstruction Work?
After examining your gums, teeth, and jaw, one of our skilled dentists may recommend a full-mouth reconstruction. This personalized treatment program will be made to fit the needs of your own teeth, gums, TMJ (temporomandibular joints), facial muscles, and dental bite. We will provide treatment, therapy, and sedation recommendations during your consultation to ensure your treatment strategy fits your wants, goals, and concerns. From there, your full-mouth reconstruction will be scheduled. You should expect it to take a few visits to KFA Dental Excellence in order to complete your full-mouth reconstruction.
What Will My Full-Mouth Reconstruction Recovery Be Like?
Since your full-mouth reconstruction will likely take a number of appointments, your KFA Dental Excellence dentist will explain what to expect and how to take care of your mouth. We may prescribe antibiotics or pain medication if it is a necessary component of recovery. You may experience some swelling or discomfort following your procedures. Implant placement will likely make it hard to chew so a liquid or soft food diet might be right for you in that case. After your full-mouth reconstruction is fully complete, it's important that you keep up your oral health with good brushing and flossing at home. Annual dental examinations and biannual cleanings will be beneficial as well.
