HI, I'M DR. REYNOLDS
I'M HOPING TO SHARE A LITTLE BIT ABOUT MYSELF AND MY VALUES WITH YOU
What You Can Expect From Me
Patient-centered healthcare is a high priority. I believe in honest, quality dental work. Patients deserve the right to hear all the treatment options and should have the autonomy to choose what treatment they will receive. While I will give my recommendation on what treatment to follow, I will listen to the patient and we'll come to a conclusion together.
DENTAL TEAM PHILOSOPHY
Alone we can do so little but together we can do so much. I believe that every member of the team should be heard and valued. My dental team comes first. The goal is to build trust and a positive work environment where every team member can feel comfortable and have a home away from home.
Dentistry is always changing. I believe in being on the forefront of research and development. However, I will never neglect the tried and true methods backed by time. My goal is to provide patients with the best treatment options and techniques available through minimally-invasive dentistry.
I'm the type of person that values freedom, traditional views and good people. This has taken me to various places but recently it has taken me back to the Midwest. I was raised in Dewey, OK and grew to love the people and the culture. After being gone many years, I've had the opportunity to return to the area and to practice in a field that I love. I'm very excited about the chance to set down roots here and to be a part of this wonderful community.
I hope you will take the time to browse through this personal page to explore how much education, CE, trainings, podcasts, books, and externship opportunities I have taken advantage of to prepare myself the very best to be a dentist that contributes to the great community of Independence, KS.
Externship consisted of treatment planning and watching the placement of countless implants, bone and soft tissue grafts, and some sinus lifts.
4TH STREET CLINIC
Externship allowed me to provide dental care for some of the homeless population in Utah. It consisted of running one dental chair with one assistant. Dentistry provided included exams, amalgam/resin fillings and a significant amount of simple extractions.
