Dr Snitker offers professional general and cosmetic dental services throughout the Kansas City area. We enjoy taking care of our patients’ dental health! Some of the services we provide are below.

Teeth Cleaning


It is recommended exams and cleaning be done every six months. This is especially important for children as their teeth develop. At each six month appointment, we will clean your teeth thoroughly to remove plaque, food particles, and tartar. A regular exam and cleaning will keep your teeth healthy.

Root Canals

Root canal

Dr. Snitker provides root canals, which may become necessary if the tooth pulp becomes infected. The need for a root canal can result from deep decay, faulty crowns, or a crack in the tooth that allows infection. During a root canal, the infected pulp is removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and disinfected. Then it is filled and sealed with a rubber-like material. A crown is often placed over the tooth to protect it.

Dentures & Partials


Dr. Snitker offers custom dentures and partials.  We will first take measurements for fit, and then determine the type of dentures you need. Conventional dentures are put in after any remaining teeth are removed and the gums have healed.  Partial dentures consist of replacement teeth attached to a gum-colored plastic base, and are used when one or more natural teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw.  Partial dentures are connected by metal framework that holds the denture in place in the mouth.

Crowns & Bridges

Crowns are essentially caps that are placed over a tooth. They are used to protect a weak tooth, to restore a broken tooth, to cover and support a large filling, hold a dental bridge in place, cover a discolored tooth, or cover an implant. Crowns can look like a natural tooth. Dr. Snitker will determine the best type of crown for you, and will expertly create and fit it.
A bridge is a fixed replacement for one or more missing teeth. They can be supported by natural teeth or implants. A crown is created for the teeth on either side of the space and a false tooth goes in between the crowns.

Pediatric Dentistry

Teeth Whitening

If you’d like to brighten up your smile, Dr. Snitker offers whitening. Teeth can become yellow from poor dental hygiene, tea, coffee, and age. It may take a few consecutive treatments to reach the level of brightness you desire, but you may start to notice a difference after one treatment.

Tooth Extraction

Dentists working on patient

Sometimes a tooth is beyond repair, and the best option is to simply remove the tooth. We offer extractions, where we gently loosen the tooth and pull it out after anesthetic is administered to the site. Gauze and pain medication are administered to stop the bleeding and alleviate any residual pain.



The most common procedure to correct a cavity is a filling. Dr. Snitker uses the latest in dental technology to provide fillings that are durable as well as hardly noticeable. The tooth-colored filler substance fills in the tooth’s cavity to seal out infection and prevent further decay.
