I’ve always been nervous to go to the dentist. They were very thorough and explained everything. Great experience.
I have to admit that I’m always nervous when I go to a dentist but Love To Smile in Peculiar, MO changed that for me. I arrived 15 minutes early for my appointment and I was taken to the back within... a minute! The tech and the dentist were so nice and put me at ease. They explained everything they were doing and made sure I was comfortable while they worked on my teeth. They were personable and I never had to wait for them to care for me. I recommend them 100%!read more

I have been coming to Love To Smile for a little over a year now and have loved my experience so far!

These folks are professional, kind, and truly concerned about your dental and overall health. I had a crown pop off Tuesday evening before Christmas and they were able to get me in to get it... re-seated the following morning. The crown will need to be replaced (it’s 30 years old), so they re-seated the existing crown and they helped me set up a plan to replace it in a couple of months. Sure was nice not to have to go “crownless” over the holidays!read more
I don’t normally like going to the dentist but I actually enjoy it now. Everyone in this office is amazing. They go above and beyond to make sure you’re comfortable and well taken care of. I wouldn’t... go anywhere else.read more
Debbie is the sweetest...we made it through a procedure ...I wouldn't have without her!! Thank you for all you do.
The entire practice, from phone staff/front desk to the whole clinical & dental team, is so incredibly caring, compassionate, understanding, patient, and professional. Receiving a personal a call... from one of the Doctors the night before my initial appointment was a very thoughtful and meaningful approach that helped with my anxiety. That exact approach during my actual appointment went a long way toward relieving my nearly paralyzing dental anxiety. I can’t say enough good things about this wonderful group, and I am beyond grateful to Dr. Pedersen, Dr. K, and the entirety of their teams!!! Would give this group 100 stars if I could!!!read more
Love to Smile is the best. I’ve been coming here for 12 years and they are super great to work with and are always accommodating of schedules, etc.I’ve had multiple dental procedures done and it’s... always done with the upmost care.Would recommend them 10/10 times!read more
Great experience from dental hygienist all th e way to Dr PatelUsed to have fear going to dentist, not anymore here as we have a pleasant experience here
I cracked my real tooth, under a porcelain veneer, bd was so freaked out about the process of replacing it that I put my head in the sand for over a year… All the time praying it wouldn’t break off!... I went to two other dentists before finding Dr Patel. They both made me want to stay in denial! But on my first consultation with Dr Patel I knew I was in the right spot. Today was the big day. Not gonna lie… I did not sleep well last night worried about the pain, and more importantly… what my temporary tooth would look like! 2 hours later I’m home, still numb but on a good ibuprofen/Tylenol regimen, and, the fake temp looks real!!! Also… the whole team at Love to Smile Dentistry is terrific. They work very well together and respect each others skills. My only regret is that I didn’t do it sooner! And not cut nothin but I could have caused a lot more grief, and expense, for myself by ignoring it. I got lucky… especially in choosing Dr Patel!read more
The hygienists are wonderful and doctors are so sweet and knowledgeable. I have had procedures done by both Dr. Patel and Dr. Pederson and was super impressed with their level of care. I always dread... going to the dentist but they make the experience as painless as possible.read more
Excellent dental services all around! Becky is amazing, best hygienist ever! Dr. Pedersen and Dr. Patel are both awesome and so friendly! Everyone is just so wonderful! Love “Love to...

Love my dental hygienist and both dentists! Very professional, friendly, and calming. Highly recommend!
Hands down the best dental team in Kansas City. Just had a crown put on today and Dr Pederson and Sarah couldn’t have been any better or more pleasant making my anxiety level zero.

I had a such great experience at Love to Smile OP!! Going through the process to start Invisalign was so smooth and quick! Dr. Pedersen and her staff are wonderful and so good at what they do!
For anyone with the old feelings of “scared” to go to the dentist - forget it!! You will walk into LOVE TO SMILE and be greeted by people who are smiling & enjoy working together AND they know you.... You have a dedicated hygienist who remembers what’s going on in your life and is extremely thorough and professional explaining everything she does. Then if you have to have more done - in my case - a crown - they do everything in house. While you wait you sit in a massage chair 😁. All I can say is “don’t be scared” & look forward to pearly whites thanks the the entire team at LOVE TO SMILE & Dr. Pederson.read more
Love to Smile Dentistry offers a one stop shop for innovative techniques and a large variety of services. I haven't had to see any other specialists since I have started frequenting this practice. ... Dr. Esther Pederson and Dr. Sunny Patel are knowledgeable and charming. The entire staff dispels anxiety and fear from the moment you enter the cool and calming blue waiting room (where you seldom wait). The reception and billing staff are fun and very personable...I have a great rapport with everybody.On more than one occasion I have had a periodontal cleaning where they discover a cavity and fix it on the same visit. This is great for me because it saves coming back for another appointment. They even file my insurance for me which I absolutely love!!Thank you everybody at Love to Smile in Overland Park...you make visiting the dentist fun (almost, lol).read more
All of the staff are the best I've ever experienced! Also, the videos you'er able to watch during your visit lower the stress level of going to see the dentist. (I've never known anyone who was... doing a happy dance)read more
Love that they keep the mood light while doing some seriously good work. Dr Patel is awesome and Tech Sarah is Sick!
I've been coming here for dental care since I moved to Kansas in 2018 and couldn't be happier. Everyone is friendly, helpful, and attentive. 10/10
I have been going here for general dentistry since I moved to the KC metro 12 years ago and I will NEVER go anywhere else! The staff are so kind and Dr. Pederson is basically a tooth artist. I saw... her transform my oldest son's snaggletooth into a beautiful smile with the help of braces. They also do implants and cosmetic dentistry, so they are an all-around great dental practice!read more
I love going to the dentist! Sarah at Love To Smile really made me feel special and taken care of during my Invisalign appointment. The environment is always welcoming, clean, and inviting. (Ask... about their massage chairs during your wait time). Dr. Patel is my favorite! I recommend her and her team any chance I get.read more

I am TERRIFIED of ALL dental treatments and I have put off years of care for this reason. “Love to Smile”put me at ease and made sure I had a comfortable experience, while they navigated through my... neglected teeth 😬 I’ve waited through a pandemic to get back to the “Love to Smile” office, because of how comfortable they made me feel the first time. Everyone was so nice and they all had great smiles.read more

My whole family comes here, even my 5 year old with Autism. They are amazing, and intentional. It truly is Complete family care. We love it!
When my tooth pain became unbearable in the middle of the night, I called around to 4 different dentists with no answer before my wife suggested I call Love To Smile. The on-call physician answered... so quickly I had to confirm I was actually talking to a human. The doctor was able to recommend a pain regiment since I didn't want to come in until morning, which got me through the night.The next morning in their office, I was met with amazing facilities, fun and welcoming support staff, and a professional and knowledgeable dental team that was able to offer a diagnosis within minutes. I'm pretty sure I've found my new dental office!read more
I love these guys. The staff is amazing and they do a great job with my teeth. Very caring and professional. Tammy Allen
I always feel comfortable at Love to Smile! They are effective at keeping me healthy and I trust them. Great team!
I had many dental issues stemming from years of neglect. I had been to other dentists over the years and all were very condescending and made me feel awful. All I wanted was to fix things. When I... moved to the area a few years ago, I happened upon Love to Smile, specifically Dr. Patel. It was the best thing that has ever happened to me! Dr Patel and his entire staff have been so kind, patient, and understanding and he has gone above and beyond in giving me a million dollar smile! I tell everyone that I know about this office and the great experiences that I have had here. I have gotten my confidence back and I cannot begin to thank them enough! You are truly a miracle maker!!read more
Everything about this place is excellent. Customary care, friendliness, professional, and works with so many different situations. The best dentist and orthodontist.

I just had my second visit and love my experiences so far. The staff listens and they take pride in giving detailed care. My last visit I complained about an issue with frequent discomfort on my... crowned molar that I’ve had for about 4 years.

I got into modeling right before I started braces, I knew I could not get regular braces if I wanted to make anything out of my modeling career at all, I was worried my teeth were too crooked for... Invisalign because I had a scissor bite with my two front teeth because my friend told me that was one of the reasons he was not eligible for Invisalign back in the day, but I went in to get checked up to see if they could do it and they said it was no problem. The whole experience with them was amazing and they were all very kind and good hearted people.read more

I've had many in-depth dental procedures done over the years, and moved several times. When my previous dentist retired, I decided to give Dr. Patel and Dr. Pedersen at Love to Smile a try. They've... both been excellent! I could tell from the start they were very skilled and knowledgeable. It's hard to go to a new dentist after putting your trust in a previous dentist for 12 years who was extremely good at his practice. But after being a patient of Dr. Patel and Dr. Pedersen for the past year, I can give them excellent reviews. They and their staff are each friendly, kind, and personable, as well as professional and efficient. I'm so glad I discovered them, and fortunate they have a location so close to my home.read more
They are wonderful and top class. They are not just professional, but also warm and friendly. I would recommend this place to anyone!
Went to four different dentists before I found this one. Love To Smile is the first one I trusted to do the work in needed done.
All inclusive as low as $72/month or $3,380.
