The office is just beautiful. The receptionist was a complete delight. The dental assistant was very pleasant and efficient. They didn't make me fill out a ream of paperwork. And, most importantly, of course, they fixed my problem right away and without lectures or "sales pitches.

Dr. Trakas is such a splendid dentist, I would hate to move and not be able to find a dentist remotely close to his character and expertise. He is so caring, educated, and just an all around cool person. Same goes for his staff. Great Dentist, great clinic. I highly recommend.

I was referred to Dr. Trakas by my general dentist, because I needed a root canal done. Dr. Trakas is a great dentist. Extremely gentle and thorough. I actually want to change practices and see Dr. Trakas on a normal routine basis. Thanks for a wonderful experience. I hope I get to make the switch.

I have been going to Dr. Trakas since 1999 when I moved to Blue Springs and would never go to another dentist. Not only is he and his staff very friendly and professional they are the best in the area. If you have a problem he will fix it and not try to tell you that you need unneeded dental work, if you want the dreaded wisdom tooth extraction he will do that too. He has never told me I needed anything just to make a dollar. I highly recommend Trakas.

Dr. Trakas is friendly and quick to smile. Further, he answered all my questions well and went over all my X-rays right in front of me. No one was pushy. The check-up process was efficient and the cleaning was painless. My hygienist and nurse were both extremely pleasant and beautiful. This dental location is by far the best I have ever visited..

My head started hurting all of a sudden, I was in so much pain. It took me a week to realize it was coming from my mouth. I thought I was starting to get migraines. I called and they got me in that day for an analysis of my wisdom teeth. Turned out the root of my top wisdom teeth had fully grown into my sinus cavities. That scared me, but he explained the process and very nicely answered all my questions. He made me feel more at ease.
I went back the next morning cuz he said it was an emergency, I could have gotten an infection in my sinus cavities if they didn't come out ASAP. So I went in and they took me right in the back. Thy put me to sleep, and got my wisdom teeth removed in less than an hour.

I'm usually a complete panic monster about my teeth, but Dr. Trakas and his office really make me feel at home. They hygienists are gentle and very thorough. Dr. Trakas is always up front about what I need both from them and at home. I'll never love going to the dentist, but it's a lot easier knowing that I'm in good hands.

My experience was as good as it could be given that I was getting 3 very impacted wisdom teeth taken out. The nursing staff were nice and made conversation with me as they set me up for my surgery. They were unable to find my veins in my arm so they had to do an IV through my hand, which is normal for me, but they were gentle in trying to get the IV in. The doctor explained that they were impacted pretty far and that I would most likely have swelling and pain. I was put out quickly and woke up in the recovery room with someone by my side. She was very sympathetic and wiped tears away from my face (I woke up and started crying bc I was anxious about the pain I was going to be in). I was wheeled out to my driver's car and that was it. I had to call back 2 days later bc I was nauseous and unable to take pain meds or eat. A prescription was sent to a local pharmacy for anti nausea meds and I picked them up. All in all... it wasn't a bad experience. I would recommend him and his staff to others.

I was recommended to see Dr. Trakas by my mother and a coworker, both had wonderful experiences and said minimal swelling and pain. The office staff is blah, not friendly and certainly do not put you at ease. I was escorted to a surgical room, none of the nurses reassuring or friendly smile. they stood in silence. They measured my blood pressure while another attempted to find a vein for the aenesthia. Dr. Trakas said "So pulling your wisdom teeth, they are a little impacted. Your left side may cause a little discomfort." And thats all folks I was under. I had minimal pain if any and next to no swelling. I am pleased with my results and now careless if they weren't friendly they got the job done and didn't cause me excess pain. Oh and this is day three out of this experience.

Well as you all know going to the dentist is already something you have to psych your self out to do knowing the endless possibilities of pain you may encounter depending on the skill level of the dentist and the overall persona the staff conveys.
That being said, my experience at Trakas's office is as follows,
I walk in the door to see a nicely laid out and comfortable waiting room and that??s where the goodness stops, the receptionist was rude in explaining how to fill out the paper work(no smiles),the dental nurse acted like I was some kind of nuisance instead of a patient while taking x-rays, keep in mind all this is happening in the initial time where your estimating how good of an experience your going to have,(they should have been curious and comforting considering I was having one of my Wisdom teeth pulled.
I am then led to the operating room and told to have a seat while the nurse stares at me like im some kind of non-living piece of matter, completely silent not acknowledging the situation or telling me everything will be fine, like a professional office would do.
Finally Trakas enters the room, looks at me and then away in the blink of an eye and says open up, then says "Wisdom tooth hurting ya?"
I tell him the obvious ,yes it hurts, then he says well its gotta come out.
There were no calming words durrring the operation from Trakas or the nurse except at the end when they told me "almost done"
In closing this has been the absolute worst dentist experience I have ever had and what makes it even worse is Trakas was too cheap to change the florescent light in the operating room so it was flickering on and off the hole time like some sick scene out of a horror movie!!!

If you want calm courteous caring dental care, DO NOT GO TO THIS DENTIST!

The office failed to contact my dentist's office in St. Louis where I had just had x-rays taken a month prior, I had to pay 80 dollars for an x-ray at their office because of a mistake their receptionists made. I even offered to call my dentist myself to get the x-rays sent over and they assured me that they had it under control. After all of that got settled, I was in the chair getting ready for the surgery, I told the nurse how nervous I was. She ignored me and just placed a nitrous mask over my face without asking if I even wanted one. It started to kick in and I took the mask off because I felt very strange. The nurse looked at me like I was crazy for not wanting nitrous. Dr. Trakas walked in and didn't even look at me or introduce himself. All he said was "Looks like you have some wisdom teeth and we're going to pull them." I asked if I really needed all 4 pulled, considering one tooth had grown in all the way and hadn't given me any problems. All he said was "Yeah." As soon as he said that, I was injected with anesthesia and put to sleep. He perscribed me Hydrocodone and Penicillin, when I specifically told him my mom was VERY allergic to Penicillin, so I might be, also. I was still under sedation when I received the Penicillin. My boyfriend administered it to me, not knowing that I could be allergic. I ended up having an allergic reaction to the medicine. I also read on the bottle that Penicillin lowers the effectivness of birth control. Dr. Trakas ignored the fact that I could be allergic (and was) to Penicillin and completely failed to tell me that I should take extra precautions with my birth control. I was paying for the surgery out of pocket. I originally was quoted $875 but my credit card was charged $1,200. The whole experience was just very uncomfortable. The office is pretty incompetant. I understand that the surgery I got was very common and he does it numerous times every day, but as an oral surgeon, he needs to take care of his patients.
