Springfield Dental Care Hein Nick DDS, Fankhauser,Jerry DDS
Dr. Hein and his staff are excellent with their patients. He takes a fresh, new style approach with his patients that is relaxing and builds confidence for the patient in a situation that normally creates a ton of anxiety. As a patient, you will receive the utmost specialized care from his staff at Springfield Dental Care. From reception, to the dental assistants, to the hygienists, and the Dr. himself...they are all truly great people. I had been a long time client of my previous dentist (since childhood) and was nervous at first to make the change to someone new....this was one of the best decisions I have made with my dental care, as I have been treated like family with the doc and staff alike. My dental hygiene is also at it's all-time best! BONUS for me! I would recommend to anyone looking for a new dentist to give Dr. Hein and the staff at Springfield Dental Care a try and become their newest patient! They work as a truly cohesive team and excel at their trade.

Robert E. Fuchs, DDS-General Dentistry-David M. Fuchs
Dr. David Fuchs is the finest dentist I have ever had. I have had bad experiences with dentists in the past and spent many years not going to a dentist because of those bad experiences; however, David and his staff changed my perspective on dentistry. He is a thorough, well trained, and personable doctor. His staff have always taken great care of me and acted in the most professional manner. He answers all of my questions thoroughly and doesn't seemed annoyed by me questioning him about procedures and or why he is performing them. David seems to care about what is best for his patients and doesn't try to perform procedures that are not necessary which is great for the budget conscience consumer. Dr. Fuchs is the only dentist I would recommend anyone going to. I have been very happy with his work.

I have been going to Dr Fankhauser for over 10 yrs. He did all my front porcelain crowns to replace teeth badly stained by tetracycline. I went from a smile I tried to hide to one I am very proud of showing off. I have people compliment my smile all the time and they never would guess they are crowns as they look so real. Dr Fankhauser and his staff are always prompt and pleasant. He and his staff have done a lot of work on my teeth over the years and I have never had a problem.In fact Dr Fankhauser has personally called to check to see how I am doing the evenings after procedures. I drive about an hour and a half to this office and will continue to do so.I will continue to recommend him and his staff to any friends seeking out a wonderful dentist.

All About Smiles Lc
Wow. What can I say? I love this place. I have been taking my children here for years and Dr. Dye has always been great. He is very caring and genuinely likes people. I have never seen him be rude, nor his staff, (even to the know-it-all dental hygienists students getting work done as is more than obvious in the other posts). He recently done work for me going above and beyond to make sure it was ABSOLUTELY PAINLESS quick and efficient. His staff a very polite and professional, as well as very skilled in their respective jobs. My children LOVE him. I cannot say enough good things about him. Questions about his work? Call me 417-315-3109. He fixed my front teeth where they were chipped and I can smile again. He is "All about the smiles".

I am a new woman with confidence and I carry myself completely differently now that my grill isn't messed up. Thank you everyone who works there.,. I appreciate you.

I went to this office for cleaning and exam. Hygienist was great as well as Dr. Kaelin. I was treated very well from the moment I stepped through the door. Very friendly and caring staff . I was offered financing through care credit to help with my dental care. I will definitely be a life time patient and look forward to my next visit. Thanks Dr. Kaelin and staff you're great!!

Distinctive Dental Solutions
Scheduling was a breeze, but do not go to this dentist if you want to protect your identity. I verified TWICE with my insurance that they do not require a SSN to file a claim. Yet Distinctive Dental Solutions insisted that they must have my SSN to process the claim. They offered to provide service only if I paid in full and submitted the claim myself. A waste of my time.

Although the work I had done was a little unpleasant, as expected, I thought they did an excellent job. They took care of me. I recommend them to my friends, family, and anyone else that needs similar help. They use very modern techniques and are a very nice group of well trained technicians and dentist(s).Thank you Springfield Dental Clinic~ S M Rickman "Wiredrick"

Buzbee Dental Clinic
The best group of professionals I have ever dealt with. Provided music and sun glasses before proceeding with my dental needs. Never ever had that before, totally relaxed me. DDS Tyler Buzbee even checked on me by texting me. That really surprised me. I highly recommend these professionals.

I love seeing the doctors at my dentist, Smile Dental. Both the older one and the younger one are very nice when I go in. They listen to me when I have concerns and even when I had to have a filling, the shots didn't hurt much at all! The girl who cleans my teeth does a great job too.
Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
