Heads up, Baldwin City! Some happy surprises may be coming your way in the weeks ahead. Baldwin City Dental is celebrating 10 years in business by giving back to the town they love to serve. “I get to spend my days with authentic, honest, and appreciative people. What more could anyone ask for?” says owner and dentist Dr. Chris Leiszler. Leiszler and his team discussed how to celebrate their 10 year anniversary, and came up with a unique idea–performing 10 Acts of Kindness in and around town. “Some big things and some small things,” says Leiszler, “but all important things.”

Leiszler and his team of dental professionals strive for excellence, with a focus on building trusting relationships with their patients. Leiszler says Baldwin City Dental is quite technologically advanced, particularly for a small town dental practice, but he adds, “We realize that it’s not just about teeth; it’s about the people attached to those teeth!”

This patient-centered approach has served Baldwin City Dental well. The business is expanding, adding an additional dentist, Dr. Meagan Heath last year, with plans to add more space to their practice in the near future.

Congratulations, Dr. Leiszler and Baldwin City Dental, on your 10 year anniversary. We will be on the lookout for your acts of kindness in the weeks ahead!

More about Baldwin City Dental from Dr. Chris Leiszler:

  • Tell us your story

I started the practice from scratch when I was not even 2 years out of dental school.  Thinking back on it now, that was simply crazy because, at the time, I didn’t even know what I didn’t know!  But with the help from some influential mentors, some people close to me who believed in me, some luck and hard work, and a very supportive community, it’s gone better than I ever could have imagined.  I’ve been so lucky to find an amazing team of employees, and we all really do enjoy coming to work every day.  If you’ve spent any time in our office, you’ve probably witnessed a lot of laughter and a positive energy that each person brings with them.  I feel like it’s a pretty special place, and I’ve found that a lot of people are surprised to find a dental practice like this in little ol’ Baldwin City.

  • What is the mission of Baldwin City Dental?

Our mission is to non-judgmentally help each patient attain whatever level of health they are willing to achieve with the highest level of care, quality, and compassion attainable.  We strive to always deliver more than would reasonably be expected, and we always remember to pay forward any blessings that we receive.

  • What factors enable your success?

Hands down, my employees are the engine driving the success of our practice.  That’s number one.  In addition to that, I really love what I do to an extremely nerdy level.  I’m a lifelong learner, and I love to immerse myself in the very best continuing education that the profession of dentistry has to offer.
