I have a child with special needs and just a visit to the dentist can be very traumatic, so I was hesitant about getting braces.  Dr. Kavanaugh was recommended and it has been an amazing experience.  My daughter cruised through this 2 year process due to the kind, caring, patient, and dedicated staff. Thank you for helping my child through this process and making it a pleasant experience.

Very pleased with the care we received! My daughter is not an easy patient and the assistant was AMAZING with her! She explained everything that was happening and made her feel comfortable. I could have just hugged her for being so sweet to my very scared and nervous 9 year old. She made our first visit less scary and I’m hopeful that the other visits will be just as good! I’m so thankful for her patience and kindness!!!

I love your office and all your employees! I’ve heard horror stories from other Moms about their orthodontist and I’m so glad I don’t have those issues. Keep doing what you’re doing because you guys are the best!!

Jane G.

I am amazed of the level of care, attention, & answered questions are very thorough and never rushed. I appreciate Dr. Kavanaugh’s personal phone calls (although I usually miss his calls). What a great team!! Thank you. 

Deana R.

We love that Dr. Kavanaugh called to welcome our daughter! The Dr. called personally, he didn't have anyone from his staff make this call, he took the time to do it. That is amazing and says a lot for his character!

Very professional but yet they’re very personable and caring. This is our second child getting braces there and we can’t think of any other place we’d trust with our children. Are oldest-has beautiful teeth now and we’re confident this one will look great also. His staff is terrific and he’ll work with you on financing. They’re the best.

There is no better orthodontic doctor and staff in MO! You all have taken care of all 5 of our kiddos and given them all beautiful smiles and confidence, and you did it with kindness, love and compassion! It is a true blessing when you find a place like this, everyone there feels like family! Thank you for all you have done for our family!

The friendly and professional atmosphere is a constant. Dr. Kavanaugh is an excellent orthodontist with an excellent ability to clearly communicate with both my daughters as well as with me. I really appreciate his expertise and humble attitude. The staff is wonderful and I greatly appreciate their skills treating my girls.

I have referred 3 people to your office and all three now go to you. They feel the same way I do that you are the best orthodontist and have the best team. I will never have to do this again, but I would pick you if I did. I will continue to refer people to you. We are getting our braces off in 4 weeks and are very happy with the results. 

Debra D.

My kids have been coming to Dr. K for at least 5 years and we have received outstanding service the entire time.

LOVE how everyone is so patient and loving to our son with high functioning autism. This means the world to us and we will refer others to you time and time again!!

Dave F.

My daughter visited a few other orthodontists prior to coming to Dr. Kavanaugh's office. It was not even close. Her decision was immediate upon walking out the door from our consultation. She always has a pleasant experience at her appointments (subsequent pain excluded :o) From a parental standpoint, thank you to the staff for your professionalism, warm environment, and payment options. Everything has been very accommodating.                                                       

Deanna L.

We had a great experience. Dr. Kavanaugh and his staff are amazing. Kind, funny and warm. Absolutely refer anyone to them. Thank you for taking great care of my child's orthodontic needs. 

Becky M.

I had the most amazing experience with my son in your office this morning. [My son] started his orthodontia process today with a fabulous woman. She was exactly what [he] and I needed this morning -- thorough, professional and kind. She explained everything to [my son] in detail in just a way that a nervous 11-year-old boy would understand. She explained what she was doing before she did it, she gave a thorough explanation of why she was doing each activity and she gave him multiple opportunities to ask questions. I cannot tell you how much I appreciated the quick rapport she established with [my son] -- she eased his fears almost immediately.

Part of my position at work is teaching new employees about our expectations with regard to customer service, and I can honestly say -- the wonderful woman working with my son this morning exemplified outstanding service to her patient today. In fact, without using her name or location of employment, I will be using her interactions as examples of “what to do” in class from now on.

Thank you so much!

My daughter’s teeth were not easy to correct. We received lots of encouragement from Dr. Kavanaugh and staff as well as great communication from his office to our DDS, which was nice. I loved that the waiting area is always clean, chairs are always available and comfortable, there's always a complimentary water or coffee and there is a place for siblings to play. These amenities allow me to relax while she's in the chair and I leave feeling a little rested and refreshed!

JoAnn G.

Dr. Kavanaugh, I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate you and your practice.  You have a great group of employees. I also appreciated that you took the time for me each visit.  I would definitely recommend you (and I have!)  My teeth look so much better!


Staci H.

My daughter and I had a wonderful experience thru the entire process! Loved the ENTIRE staff! We will only recommend you all! THANK YOU VERY MUCH!


Candice M.

Dr. Kavanaugh and his staff were wonderful. We never felt rushed, appointments were on time, everyone was professional, yet fun!  


Jeff A.

I'm a proud father, my daughter's teeth look great and I am very pleased with the outcome... The staff is very friendly and professional and make you feel very welcome... I thank your staff for all the help and what you all did for my daughter.


Tim K.

We couldn't be happier with results that all four of our children received from Dr. Kurt and his staff.  Dr. Kurt uses all the latest technology available to ensure the best results for his patients. We are looking forward to our fifth and youngest child to complete her orthodontic care with Dr. Kurt and his team.
