Dr. Heckman and her staff are extraordinary. From the greeting as you step into the door, the genuine care and concern of each patient is evident. Dr. Heckman has explained each procedure and has designed a program whereby I can plan on dental treatment to have and maintain healthy teeth. The staff works with our insurance to make sure we make use of the coverage available and schedules appointments that work with the patient’s own schedule. It’s wonderful that Dr. Heckman and her staff have located in their hometown Independence and are involved with the community.

I would recommend Dr. Heckman without hesitation. She and her caring staff provide excellent care and create a warm, welcoming environment. I have been incredibly pleased and no longer dread my trips to the dentist office!

I would highly recommend Dr. Beth Heckman for your dental needs. She is a home grown lady from good roots. I happily referred many of my family members to her knowing she will take as good of care for their dental needs as she does mine. Go see Beth, she is awesome!

Dr. Heckman and her staff are the best, they really go above and beyond! The office ladies are so friendly and personable. Her dental hygienists are very knowledgeable and thorough. I’d recommend Dr. Heckman for any of your dental needs!

We have been patients of Dr. Heckman since she opened her practice in 2009. Susan and I, along with our children and grandchildren are all patients of Dr. Heckman. From the good customer service at the front desk, to the excellent combination of technical skills and “people” skills of the dental staff, we have been pleased. From routine exams and cleanings, to necessary dental work such as fillings and crowns, we have been happy. We don’t hesitate to recommend her and her staff’s services to anyone who wants dental care in a comfortable and professional setting.

I wanted to write and thank you for the wonderful service you have always given me. I am so impressed by the whole atmosphere. It starts with smiles and a greeting when you walk in the front door, to the knowledgeable and educational experience you get from the dental hygienists. The care is above and beyond any dental I have ever received. Dr. Heckman, you are always patient, professional and explain everything clearly. You always pace yourself according to my needs. I appreciate that you take great care to ensure no pain is involved. The overall experience has reduced my fear of dental work. I have recommended my friends and family to your office and will continue to do so. Thank you again!

It’s rare that you come across an office that you feel comfortable in body, mind and spirit, but this office does it. Dr. Heckman became our dentist shortly after she came to town. She and her staff have earned our highest recommendation. Thank you, you are all a blessing!

When I was searching for a dentist in Independence. I heard Dr. Heckman spoken of as “the best dentist in town”. I agree! I have had nothing but good experiences, both with her work and that of her staff. And I have heard a dental specialist in another town speak highly of her.

Every interaction I have had with Dr. Heckman and her staff has been positive. The staff is always pleasant and courteous. They have gone out of their way to work with me and my schedule. Dr. Heckman is also great with kids. My children enjoy going to the dentist and it has never been a scary thing for them to go.

Matthew, 6 years old, recently had to have four teeth filled after his first-ever x-rays revealed cavities. Dr. Heckman carefully explained what would be involved with the fillings, and prepared me for the possibility that one of them might require more extensive work. I tried to make sure Matthew didn’t sense my anxiety as we arrived at the first of two appointments. He seemed perfectly fine, and I didn’t want anything to change his calm demeanor. Without going into every detail, Dr. Heckman was incredible! Matthew literally never felt a moment of pain, from the numbing shots to the drill. She had kid-friendly terms and explanations for every sound, sight, and smell, and the fillings went in without a hitch! I was amazed! I hope we have made the necessary changes to avoid future cavities, but if for some reason we have to have dental work done in the future, there will be none of the typical fear and anxiety when we walk into Dr. Heckman’s office. Only smiles :)

I am happy to submit this message of satisfaction with the services of Beth Heckman. Following my recent move back to Independence, I made my first appointment with Beth. After a thorough evaluation she advised me that I had multiple issues that had not been addressed with my previous dentist in my former community. I was impressed that Beth immediately came up with a very comprehensive plan to address each of my issues. I am now in the midst of that plan and I am confident that my dental health will improve through her actions. I definitely recommend Beth since I know that she is committed to the improved dental health of her patients.
