Dr. Seaman was actually born Illinois and grew up there and in the St Louis area. He moved to the Kansas City area for dental school, when he was accepted to UMKC School of Dentistry, which he graduated from in 1981. He liked the area and decided to stay and open a practice, which he did in June 1981 in Overland Park, Ks. Currently, the practice is located in its 3rd location, in Lenexa, KS. Besides being a great dentist, Dr. Seaman is a family man. He has 6 adult children and 5 grandchildren to keep him busy when he is not in the office. He and his wife host many family gatherings and love spending time with their grandchildren. If that doesn't sound like enough, he has hobbies too. His weekends are filled with organic gardening, baking, track officiating, and woodworking projects.
Dr. Seaman and our hygienists believe that with proper home care and regular dental care, it is possible to keep your natural teeth for life. Unfortunately, not everyone is able to maintain both of these components through out their lives and replacements are necessary. We care for patients of all walks of life and in all types of dental situations. Our treatment approach is based on your input and desires for oral health, appearance of your smile and any other factors important to you; there are always options and we will work with you to determine the plan that fits your needs and desires. We want you to have a healthy mouth and a smile you are proud to show off. We also do our best to provide as many of those options, as possible, in our office. However, there are times when a specialist is necessary and then we will refer you to a specialist which we have worked with and trust, to insure you receive excellent care if you ever do need to one. We also provide patients with excellent friendly service, by maintaining a relaxing "family like" environment so you are comfortable during your visits and our staff will go out of their way to handle all your insurance needs, and make all other areas as convenient as possible for you and your family. Having 2 full time hygienists also enables us to schedule multiple family members on the same day, overlapping or at the same time, so families can make less trips and spend less time in the office.
At Seaman Family Dentistry, you will find that we not only provide excellent, quality dental services, but we make every effort to make things easy and convenient for you. We communicate with our patients by phone, email, website chat, and even through text appointment reminders. New Patients can even schedule their first visit to our office online from the home page on our website and we are working on changes that will allow existing patients to make appointments online too.
So whether you are just looking for a dentist office to keep your teeth clean and healthy, a place where your whole family can come to, a dentist to help you get back on track because you need a lot of dental work, an office where you can not only get necessary services but also get your teeth whitened, straighten your teeth or your kids, or you need to consider replacing your teeth with fixed or removable options - give us a call, we are here to assist you in all these areas.
Healthgrades does not collect malpractice information for Kansas.
What is medical malpractice?
Medical malpractice is issued when negligence by a doctor causes injury to a patient. For example, a doctor may improperly diagnose, treat or medicate outside the standard of medical care. The three types of malpractice are: a settlement, an arbitration award, or a judgment.
If my doctor has malpractice history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If your doctor has a malpractice claim, evaluate the information and determine if the action could potentially impact the quality of care you receive. Claim settlements and arbitration awards may occur for a variety of reasons, which should not necessarily reflect negatively on the doctor's professional competence or conduct. You may want to use this information to start a discussion with the doctor about his or her history and specific ability to provide healthcare for you.
How far back does Healthgrades malpractice history go?
Healthgrades reports details of a doctor’s malpractice history when the doctor has at least one closed medical malpractice claim within the last five years, even if he or she no longer practices in that state.
For which states does Healthgrades collect malpractice history?
Healthgrades collects malpractice information from California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, and West Virginia. If your doctor has a malpractice claim, evaluate the information and determine if the action could potentially impact your quality of care. Sometimes multiple states report the same claim. If a provider practices in a state where data is unavailable, please reach out to your local state legislature to help make this data publicly available.
No sanctions history found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
What is a sanction or disciplinary action?
A sanction, also known as a disciplinary action, is an action taken to punish or restrict a doctor who has demonstrated professional misconduct. Sanctions may be imposed by a state medical board, professional medical licensing organization, or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
If my doctor has sanction history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a sanction, it does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor-quality doctor. Some sanctions are not related to medical care, and involve a doctor’s finances or administrative activities. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, we recommend that you evaluate the doctor’s sanction information and determine how severe or relevant you think the sanction cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades sanction history go?
Healthgrades reports state and federal sanctions from the previous five years, except when a doctor's license has been revoked or surrendered. Healthgrades displays all actions for doctors whose licenses have been revoked or surrendered.
For which states does Healthgrades collect sanction history?
Healthgrades collects sanction history from all 50 U.S. states. Physicians with a disciplinary action in one state may move to another state where they have a clean record. Since Healthgrades painstakingly compiles disciplinary action information from all 50 states, Healthgrades website will show if a physician has a disciplinary action in more than one state.
0 Board Actions
No board actions found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
What are board actions?
Board actions are non-disciplinary actions imposed upon a doctor based on a complaint investigation. A patient or medical colleague may file a complaint with that state medical board or professional licensing organization, which then investigates the complaint. Board actions are intended to ensure that a doctor is able to perform safe medical and health care tasks.
Types of non-disciplinary actions include an advisory letter, a corrective action agreement, a limitation or restriction on the medical or healthcare tasks a doctor can perform, or a voluntary agreement by the doctor not to practice. A board action can also include a termination of a corrective action agreement or voluntary agreement, which allows the doctor to return to full practice.
If my doctor has a board action, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a board action, it means he or she has had a non-disciplinary action imposed upon him or her. It does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor quality doctor. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, evaluate the doctor's board action information and determine how severe or relevant you think the cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades non-disciplinary board action history go?
