My name is Jon Elder and my wife and I currently live in Gardner Kansas with our three children.  We have good friends that live in So Sioux City that we visit once or twice a year.  I recently visited the dentist in Gardner Kansas and asked about cosmetic dentistry for my front teeth.  I have never been happy with the size, shape or color of my teeth since I was 16 years old.  The dentist in Gardner told me he could do bonding but I was hoping for something more permanent I had bonding in the past and was not impressed and have to replace it every 3-4 years.  I was telling my friend in So Sioux about this and she suggested that I come up to So Sioux and have her dentist look at my mouth.  As soon as I stepped into the office I knew I made the right decision the staff was so nice and knowledgeable; the office was beautiful and very High Tech.  My wife and I were so impressed. 

Dr. Barr went over a couple of different options with me and suggested that I do Veneers.  He showed me several examples of before and after photos of veneer cases he has done in the past.  Dr. Barr and 2 of his staff have veneers on and were happy to talk to me about the procedure and show their smile off.  Once we decided to proceed with the veneers his assistant took impressions for temps that day and the front office pre-authorized my insurance and got me pre-approved for Care Credit they made this process so easy for me I appointed right away. I wore temps for 1 week and went back to Gardner to work when I returned for the delivery appointment Dr Barr had the Lab on stand-by if we needed them to do a custom shade just in case.  My shade was right on Dr. Barr was so patient and let me see the veneers before he bonded them on permanently in case I wanted to change anything. I was so happy with the finished product and the way I was treated by everyone in the office. 

My Hat is off to you Family 1st Dental of So Sioux I will gladly travel 4 hours 1 way for my dental treatment every time!  I will recommend your office anytime!
