Endodontics (Root Canal Therapy)


Invisalign® uses a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten teeth without metal wires, brackets, or embarrassment. We strive to make this progressive and effective treatment available to everyone. That’s why we offer a 4% discount for payment in full, no interest payment plans for up to 18 months with Care Credit, and unique payment plans based on your Flex Plan needs.


Clay Center Dental Clinic also offers Invisalign Teen™ so that you or your teen needn't worry about the upcoming sporting event, looking awkward for a dance, or missing out on a favorite meal. Not only do we pride ourselves on the best teeth cleaning technique in Clay Center, we also have the best track record when it comes to straightening. Book an appointment today!

Teeth Whitening

A bright and white smile is your best accessory! The difference that professional whitening services make is massive! Our Zoom! Chairside Whitening technique is powerful, lasts for a very long time, and takes only one in office visit to our Clay Center location. So if you want to see an obvious improvement in the color of your smile, and you want to see it fast, call Clay Center Dental Clinic for a whitening appointment today.


We do, however, offer Crest White Strips Supreme for those who would prefer at home treatment. At Clay Center Dental Clinic in Clay Center, we take teeth cleaning and whitening seriously!


And of course, after a fantastic teeth whitening session, our range of Sonicare toothbrush will help keep your teeth clean and smile white!
