Dr. BUSCH and his staff are the most highly educated staff I have ever been to and utilize the most up to date equipment and techniques of any dental office I have ever been treated by. The office space is beautifully decorated and has a very relaxing atmosphere. The equipment is very high tech and Dr. BUSCH and his staff make sure that you are educated as well every step of the way. I would definitely recommend NKC Dental without hesitation!

Worst Dental Experience Ever If you are thinking Dr. Bush ?NKC dental office is right place for your crown needs, you must think it again and BEWARE! He is ONLY a good doctor when there is no issue with his work. Bad Customer Service Since I reported my issue to the office, the office staff did not response to my request.

Worst Dental Experience Ever If you are thinking Dr. Bush –NKC dental office is right place for your crown needs, you must think it again and BEWARE! He is ONLY a good doctor when there is no issue with his work. No Work Experience Dr. Bush does not have experience on crown dental works. He spent over 6 hours to get just 4 crowns done on my front teeth in December 2015. After the crowns, I reported to Dr. Bush and his staff immediately that I experiences issue with feeling very uncomfortabl

Although I now live in St Louis, travel to Dr Busch because he was able to assist me as an emergency patient while I was in town visiting my daughter. He impressed me with his professionalism, attention to detail, as well as making me feel at ease in the dental chair ( which is no small feat). I would highly recommend Dr Busch to anyone requiring dental needs.

I am very happy to find out that Samantha, one of Dr. Busch's hygienist, is there full time now. In my opinion she is a great asset to the office. I like that she is so knowledgeable and detailed in her cleanings. Also it helps that she is so fun and easy to talk with. I go for a cleaning every three months and it's comforting to know that she will be there to take care of my appointments. Thank You Samantha

He made my dental visits enjoyable and kept me updated on my dental health.

I have been going to Dr. Busch for 12 years now. I recently broke a tooth biting into a protein bar, and I scheduled an appointment with him to have the tooth repaired. Within an hour, I left his office with a new tooth that felt and looked like the original! Dr. Busch never ceases to amaze me because he always has the latest and greatest technology. If you want the best, go to Dr. Busch!
