Our goal is to provide excellent periodontal and implant dentistry to help you keep your mouth in optimal health, comfort, function and esthetics over the course of your life. We believe that freedom from periodontal disease is possible, and we are here to help you achieve that goal. 

The first step is an initial examination and treatment consultation. During this visit, we will assess your dental and medical history and provide a thorough oral examination that includes an oral cancer screening. Occasionally, diagnostic images such as dental x-rays, photographs and imprints of your teeth may be taken. After your examination, Dr. Kohlhorst will discuss his findings and all options for treatment.

You can expect attentive and excellent care at our practice. Dr. Kohlhorst and his staff attend many hours of additional advanced training to provide you with the highest level of care. They likewise employ only the most proven procedures and techniques to ensure your comfort and treatment results. As successful periodontal care also requires your understanding and input, we encourage you to express any questions or concerns you may have. We look forward to meeting you and providing you with exceptional care.

If you would like to schedule an appointment please call us at (620) 275-2828.

Dental Implants

Dr. Kohlhorst has placed dental implants for over 19 years. One of his highest priorities is to ensure that you completely understand what dental implants are and all of your treatment options before proceeding. You can be assured he will take the time to answer all of your questions. 

Periodontal Disease

Periodontal disease (also known as "gum disease", "pyorrhea" or "periodontal infection") is an ongoing bacterial infection in the gums and bone around your teeth. This infection leads to an inflammation under the gums, and if not treated, this inflammation can destroy the bone around your teeth. This results in tooth loss.
