Maintain a Healthy Smile with General Dentistry

Solea Laser

We are the first dental office in Kansas to offer the Solea® Dental Laser. This revolutionary tool removes both hard and soft tissue for restorative and cosmetic purposes. We can now eliminate decay, reshape the gums, remove bacteria, and smooth the tooth without the need for local anesthetic.


With VELscope®, we can diagnose oral cancer in its earliest stages when it is most treatable. Using a special light, this tool illuminates dark spots and irregularities that would otherwise be invisible to the unaided eye. If we notice abnormalities, we can recommend appropriate treatment.

To diagnose a cavity in its earliest stages, we use DIAGNOdent®, a sophisticated laser that detects caries or very small areas of decay. This handheld device uses fluorescence to identify damaged areas, which will appear brighter than others. We can then treat accordingly with a composite filling.

In cases of severe tooth decay or trauma, you may require extraction. We use advanced techniques to make this procedure as comfortable as possible. We can also place a dental implant in the same visit. We do not perform wisdom tooth extractions, but can refer you to an oral surgeon if needed.

Your comfort is important to us, which is why we offer various sedation options. If you suffer from dental anxiety or need to undergo a more complex procedure, we can provide an oral sedative, nitrous oxide, or intravenous (IV) sedation administered by a nurse anesthetist.

TMJ Therapy

If you suffer from chronic jaw, face, or neck pain, you may be suffering from temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder. Dr. Nordhus provides TMJ therapy to relieve your discomfort. To keep abreast of advances, he attends continuing education courses at Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies.

If you play sports or grind your teeth (also known as bruxism), we can create a custom mouthguard to protect your teeth from damage. Mouthguards can be worn at night when you sleep or during sports practices and games, and are designed for optimal comfort.

Pediatric Dentistry

We treat children of all ages to ensure a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums. To encourage excellent dental hygiene, we have a Cavity-Free Club, where we teach our youngest patients the proper ways to care for their smile, while making sure their primary and permanent teeth develop correctly.

Comprehensive Examinations

Comprehensive biannual exams are an important part of oral healthcare. During your visit, we can examine the health of your gums, jaw, and teeth. Using advanced technology, we can diagnose and treat conditions in their earliest stages, saving you from complex restorative treatments in the future.

Teeth Cleaning

During biannual visits, we can professionally clean and polish your teeth, removing plaque and tartar from hard-to-reach areas. We can also demonstrate the proper techniques for brushing, flossing, and rinsing, so you can improve your at-home hygiene regimen.

Periodontal Therapy

If you have developed periodontal or gum disease, we can use a CO2 laser in conjunction with traditional deep cleaning to remove bacteria. If left untreated, bacteria can damage the gums and eventually the bone that supports the teeth, resulting in gum recession and tooth loss.
