“Dr. Brightwell is a dentist you can trust. My other dentist wanted to put on a crown and several fillings. I went to Dr. Brightwell for a second opinion, and as I suspected, no dental work was needed. Dr. Brightwell has been my dentist since then, for the last five years. He keeps my mouth healthy and happy. Thank you; keep up the good work.”

“Kudos to Dr. Brightwell and his staff! Recently, while out of town for the weekend, a crown on my front tooth (put on by another dentist 30 years ago) cracked off. My sense of emergency set in when I knew I had to go back to work on Monday. I called Dr. Brightwell at home and asked if he could see me first thing on Monday. He agreed that I could meet him in the office Monday at 8:00. I was so impressed by his willingness to flex his schedule to take care of my crown. Within an hour, he had prepared the tooth, made a mold, and set me up with a temporary. A week later, I had a perfectly matched crown! Thank you so much for your flexibility and the beautiful new crown!”

“First class, as always.”

— Gary


“Always ready, prompt (even when I wasn’t), and friendly. Even though I have moved to the far west side of the metro, I wouldn’t consider changing to a closer dentist. I have always felt the care I receive here is top notch! Thank you!”

— Ginger


“I have been a patient at Dr. Brightwell’s office for almost 30 years. I love the staff, especially Shelley, who always does a terrific job cleaning my teeth. Dr. Brightwell is always very compassionate and patient with me, as I do not like going to the dentist’s office. I would highly recommend this office for any work you need done.”

— Kim


“We’ve been patients for many years. Great office, staff, and Dr. Brightwell: with a name like that he was born to be a dentist.”

— Melissa


“Dr. Brightwell has a great support staff that’s courteous and friendly. Dr. Brightwell provides a thorough dental exam and explains what he finds in a way that’s easy to understand. They have also implemented new digital X-ray technology. This new X-ray is much more comfortable and quicker than the older way. As someone that was new to KC years ago, I’m thoroughly satisfied with my new dentist.”

— Brendan


“Nicole is my hygienist and she does a great job. She has a great personality and I’m never in any discomfort when she cleans my teeth. Dr. Brightwell has a good chairside manner and is very personable. Great team!”

— Bobby


“I came to Dr. Brightwell’s practice when my previous dentist retired. I initially followed my hygienist, Nicole, who I absolutely love! But I quickly came to enjoy the entire experience in this office. The staff is friendly, the office is clean, and everyone seems genuinely dedicated to making sure each patient has a good experience. I would highly recommend this practice. And kudos to Nicole for always making my visit a pleasant one!”

— Kelly


“Nicole Cook has worked with Dr. Brightwell since her previous employer retired. She does a great job and is enjoyable to talk to during my cleanings. Dr. Brightwell is thorough and personable. He has made adjustments in my treatment plan because of my oral health, not because insurance will pay for it.”

— Tim


“Dr. Brightwell and staff are amazing!”

— Heather


“Both Nicole and Dr. Brightwell are terrific. I am so pleased that the doctor added the ‘affordable maintenance plan.’ After retirement, my healthcare has become more complicated. These are two folks that I appreciate and did not want to give up. Thanks!”

— Donna


“You couldn’t ask for a friendlier group of people or better care. Excellent in all respects.”

— Mary


“In addition to all the above, the care I receive is empathetic, personal, and most importantly, designed around my needs and issues. I trust Dr. Brightwell and his staff to give me the best care I could hope for.”

— Judy


“Having attended college with Dr. Brightwell, I knew him to be both studious and honest. My family and I have been going to Dr. Brightwell for 30 years and his service (and that of his staff) has always been top rate. I would highly recommend Dr. Brightwell to anyone searching for a quality dentist.”

— Jeff


“From the moment you walk in to the moment you leave, it is a wonderful experience. They are very punctual and will not leave you in the waiting room. Everything is thoroughly explained to you before they begin any procedure, and you feel very open and welcome to asking any questions. I was recommended to see Dr. Brightwell by a friend and I’ll be sure to tell others to see him as well.”

— Brenda


“My family of four sees this dentist and have always received the best care in a professional manner. Very thorough and explains all options.”


“This was my first appointment as a new patient of Dr. Brightwell. Your staff is friendly and gracious. Shelly did a thorough teeth cleaning that was so pleasant I almost fell asleep. The scope of Dr. Brightwell’s review was broader that I’ve experienced before, including head, neck, and throat. Thank you for your excellent care.”


“From the very warm hello I received from the receptionist, who was incredibly sweet and professional, to the complete care and thoroughness of the hygienist and doctor, I was satisfied all the way around.”


“Dr. B. and staff are the best. Timely, gentle, and smart. Thanks all.”


“Dr. Brightwell is an excellent dentist. I have been a patient of his at least 20 years and I have received good care.”


“I got my teeth cleaned and had my yearly X-rays and oral cancer screening. A small cavity showed up on the X-rays. An appointment to take care of it was scheduled later in the afternoon, and it was taken care of. Easy!”
