This Dentist Loves to Help People Smile
Dr. Graham Naasz is no stranger to Dentistry. His curiosity started in high school when he spent time shadowing in dental offices. He was able to shadow for a continuous 2 years in the same offices, where he saw people go through smile makeovers and complete orthodontic treatment.
“It amazed me how much a little cosmetic change to someone’s smile could completely change their approach and demeanor on life. I loved it. The dentist was able to work with them to remedy, what in their mind was their most self-conscious feature, and the metamorphosis of personality and happiness was astounding.”
From that point his future was clear, he knew that he wanted to strive to be able to provide that sense of relief and happiness that he saw appear on so many patients’ faces.
Dr. Naasz is KC born and raised. He attended Rockhurst High School before graduating with the Highest Distinction from the University of Kansas. Dr. Naasz went on to attend UMKC School of Dentistry where he graduated Summa Cum Laude. While attending dental school he held many leadership roles and was honored with awards from his faculty in Periodontics and Prosthodontics.
Following dental school, Dr. Naasz expanded his clinical skills while serving our Veterans by completing one of the top Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) residency programs in the country at the South Texas Veterans Health Care System in San Antonio, Texas. During the program, he received advanced training in the placement of dental implants, surgical techniques, cosmetic dentistry, root canals, full-mouth rehabilitations, Invisalign, and management of medically compromised patients.
Dr. Naasz understands that each patient’s oral health journey is unique, and places tremendous value in cultivating relationships with his patients. It is through these relationships that he strives to best understand his patient’s individual goals and deliver their dental care in the most comfortable and long-lasting way possible.
“The thing I’m most excited about in my career is the interpersonal relationships with people. I’ve always loved working with people and communicating to come up with a plan together. Everyone has a unique story, and as a dentist, I get to be a little part of that.”
Whether it be helping someone get whiter teeth for their child’s wedding, or fixing a last-minute chipped tooth before a big interview or meeting; Dr. Naasz doesn’t take it for granted that he gets to be a part of these moments in people’s lives.
