Going to a dental procedure is always a bit scary, but Dr. Lavitt and Chantelle were so friendly, so calming, and so great that my fears were soon eased. Dr. Lavitt is fantastic. I had a root canal and experienced NO PAIN whatsoever. I didn't even feel the Novocain shots. I really wish I could see Dr. Lavitt for all my dental needs instead of just the specialty procedures. He is that great. Thank you for taking such good care of me.

This was my first time at this practice. It was a such a positive experience all the way around. The office staff was very friendly. I had to have a root canal and Dr. Lavitt and his dental assistant Charlann were very professional. Dr. Lavitt kept me informed on every step of the root canal. I would highly recommend Dr. Lavitt to my family and friends.

Dr. Jansson made me feel comfortable and stopped during the procedure to ask if I was doing ok and to reassure me all was going well. I certainly appreciated that as I have spent many years in the dental chair - with not always good results. He and his staff answered any questions I had and I would definitely recommend him.

I enjoyed the informal relaxed environment. It was enjoyable to hear about the cats roaming at night and about kids adventures in pre-school.

I was referred to the office by my dentist because of a bad tooth that was way too sensitive and he couldn’t find anything on the ex-rays so when I arrived at Missouri Dental Specialist they gave me the whole deal trying to find out what was going on and since I have such sensitivity going on Dr.Jannson and Emily were very caring about it and understood how I felt. He seen the ex-rays and a scan and showed lots of swelling in my root and slight cracks so right there he did a root canal on one and another root canal on another, apparently I had way too much sensitivity in both teeth , the staff are very sweet and patient and understanding, thank you all for everything and your kindness for someone who is very nervous about having teeth touched , don’t ever change in how you handle patients because how you were with me will gain a lifetime of trust , I will always come back to you all if I ever need to again , thank you so much!!

I went in just to see what the cause of my discomfort was and they ended up doing a root canal on the spot. My pain has gone away already. Dr. Jansson and his staff were very caring and their humor helped the time fly by during the actual procedure. I would highly recommend Missouri Dental Specialists.

I was referred to Dr.Jannson from my hometown dentist. I had to have 3 root canals redone from 45 years ago. Dr.Jannson worked way after hours to do 2 teeth then he had me to return at 5:30am to do the other tooth. Who has ever heard of a doctor being so dedicated to his patients. My sister n myself are cancer patients we are taking care of each other so she was with me. The staff made my sister comfortable while I was getting worked on. Since it was so late when Dr got 2 teeth done n we were to return at 5:30am n we drove a long ways to Jeffcity Dr.Jannson offered to put my sister n I in a motel. What a blessing it was cause we were wore out. With me doing chemo Dr.Jannson wanted to do all he could so I could continue my treatments. Dr.Jannson and his staff are a blessing to have at the dental office thank you very much for everything you all have done for my sister n myself.

I was scheduled for a root canal but did not quite fit the criteria so Dr Jansson did further xrays and determined I had a cracked tooth instead..I would have liked to save the tooth but he saved me the additional fiinancial expense since the root canal would not have been beneficial. He was very nice about the situation and I appreciated that.Excellent staff and facility.

This (root canal) was my first ever procedure of this nature. Dr. Jannsen put me at ease and performed the procedure contrary to all of the "horror" stories I heard regarding the procedure. I would recommend he and his staff to ANYONE. If I ever have to have this procedure done again, I will not hesitate to contact Missouri Dental Specialist and Dr. Jannsen again. Thank you!

We were referred by our local dental facility on a same-day immediate need, due to my child accidentally breaking a front tooth. They made room for us that same afternoon, understanding that we had to travel 1-1/2 hours to get there. When we arrived, I was impressed by the team's friendliness and professionalism. First visit, I needed to fill-out a two-page form and sign a few things (the usual). My child is special needs and the team handled him with care - as if he were their own. After 32 years in the Army, I'm critical about everything I see. I was amazed at the kind treatment we were receiving, even though it was near closing time. I'm also very observant in detail: the facility is exceptionally clean, well organized, the equipment clearly the latest technology and comfortable. What struck me the most was the professionalism and efficiency that was demonstrated as I watched Dr. Jansson and Liza (Dental Assitant) work; there was almost no verbal communication between them as they switched "tools" and performed the root canal procedure, completing it in less than 20 minutes from the moment they started (not including numbing up the site). And their conservation with us throughout was friendly and enjoyable. My son actually did not complain throughout the experience - and that is AMAZING. Nothing like it. My child is a happy camper today. Strongly recommend this facility and will request them in the future for similar needs.

I was extremely satisfied with Dr. Jansson and his staff. From the moment we entered the practice his staff was welcoming. When the Dr. came in he asked my daughter questions about the procedure, and helped her understand the process. I felt like that in itself should be recognized. He could have explained everything to me, however he knew that I was right there to hear it, so he focused his questions and explanations to my daughter. She was very nervous however Dr. Jansson and his staff operated in a manner where she sat through the procedure without any issues. Honestly, if you didn't know he was doing a root canal you would have assumed he was performing a filling! To say this group is top notch would be an understatement. This group is awesome! ....Even "Owie"!
