Quality, Honesty, & Kindness

Our Mission

At The Art of Dentistry, our philosophy is simple: every patient deserves excellent dental care, and they deserve to be treated with honesty and compassion. We’re in the field of dentistry to improve the livelihoods of our patients through restoring their confidence in themselves and their smiles. To do that, we’re continually taking steps to be at the forefront of dental practices and advancements in technology, so you can rest easy knowing you are receiving the best care that dentistry has to offer. We proudly serve dental patients in Overland Park and Louisburg! 

Meet The Doctor

Dr. Kirkegaard

Born and raised in Topeka, KS, Dr. Kirkegaard grew up obsessed with medicine, as his father was an ophthalmologist and the inspiration for Dr. K to pursue medicine as his career. After receiving his Bachelor of Arts in Biology with a Minor in Business from the University of Kansas, he headed to Chicago to complete his DMD at Midwestern University College of Dental Medicine. Unable to stay away from his beloved home state, he returned to Kansas and has since opened up his own practice, The Art of Dentistry, with the goal of bringing quality dental care to the community he loves.

When he’s not in the office, you’ll find him spending time with his wife, cat, and new baby girl. He enjoys biking and climbing, and, as a lifelong music and art lover, he paints, collects vinyl records and is currently learning to play the piano.

Our Give

Midwest Animal sanctuary

We strongly believe in giving back to our community, and that’s why for every new patient, we make a donation to our favorite local animal shelter, Midwest Animal Sanctuary. If it’s your first time with us, you’ll get a token to drop into our donation jar on your way out. Every quarter, we add up the tokens and purchase items the shelter needs, from beds to toys, and anything else they require. Animals bring us so much joy, and we do everything we can to ensure that animals without homes live as comfortably as possible and try our best to find them the homes they deserve.

Our Office

Comforts & Amenities

A visit to the dentist should be a calming, healthful experience, not a stressful one. We’ve created a dental office that immediately puts your mind at ease. Walking through our doors is more like walking into a spa than a dentist’s office. Art on the walls, relaxed lighting, and comfy seating are complemented by modern comforts and amenities, like a coffee and beverage station, TVs with Netflix and headphones in each operatory, as well as warm towels and blankets. You might start showing up to your appointments extra early just to hang out, and we wouldn’t blame you! If you’re sick and tired of the sterile, dated environment of traditional dentist offices, come visit us and experience The Art of Dentistry difference for yourself!
