Dr. Matthew Hlavacek and his assistants (4) were very gentle and made certian i was always comfortable. Out of all the dental work I've had done my entire life, (it's been alot) Kansas City Surgical Arts is by far the best I've ever experienced!! Highly Recommended+++

Would recommend it for any one that needs a tooth implant installed. This is actually my second implant installed. Think back to the last time you had a doctor check in personally with you on anything. Dr. Hlavacek both times personally contacted me the night the implants were installed and then again in a couple weeks to see how things were going. Dr. Hlavacek takes pride in making sure the procedure goes well, like in the after image of where my tooth was pulled wanting to wait a few more weeks to allow for the bone to grow more. Not just worried about the dollar but the pride of procedure being done right. No infection or complications either time.

Kansas City Surgical Arts is the best. The WHOLE staff is amazing and caring. It starts with setting up a consultation all the way through your procedure and follow ups. The front desk ladies, patient coordinator (Hannah) to nursing, (Bella, and Kim) and of course Dr. Hlavacek (the best), care so much for their patients. I would highly recommend KC Surgicial Arts.

Dr. Hlavacek and his team did a fantastic job on my oral surgery. I particularly like that during every step they were telling me what to expect next. Everything from you're going to feel a little pinch here or this is the next sound you're going to hear or you're going to feel pressure now. An additional plus was the team being right on time for my appointments. No sitting and waiting for an extended period of time. Their communication regarding appointment times, prepping for my procedure and aftercare was top-notch. An additional kudos goes to Dr. Hlavacek for giving me a call the evening of my procedure to check in on me. I have no doubt in my mind that I made the correct choice for my dental care. I would recommend them highly.
