“We recently switched from our long term dentists to this office. We could not be more pleased. The office staff are very professional and efficient, the hygienists were fantastic and Dr. Lukens provided a very thorough exam. I also appreciated the follow up letter detailing the appointment, findings and recommendations. Please give them a try, you will not be disappointed.”

“First of all I never write reviews but in this case I wanted to let everyone know that I was very impressed with Dr. Lukens and his staff's friendliness and wonderful level of professionalism and efficiency that I received. I was trying to find a good dentist in the Wichita area and I am so glad that I chose Lukens Dental. To me it's worth my time to write a positive review because good work should not go unnoticed.”
