Dr. Michael D. Arnett has been practicing dentistry since 2006. He worked as an associate dentist in Kansas City, Kansas for three years before opening Briarcliff Dental Care in Riverside, MO in 2009. In the summer of 2017 he purchased the dental practice of Dr. Rod Thiele and re-branded it as First City Dental Care. While getting acclimated to the new surroundings, Dr. Arnett has begun the process of modernizing the office and as a first step; First City Dental Care is now fully digital and paperless. The modernization efforts will continue over the next several years.
To ensure all of Dr. Arnett’s patients at both locations have the very best care possible, he hired Dr. Steven J. Frost. Dr. Frost works alongside him at both the Briarcliff and Leavenworth locations. Like Dr. Arnett, Dr. Frost loves establishing a personal connection with his patients. In addition, they both believe strongly in continuing education, so they can offer a wide range of services. It is because of this that we are able to expand the services available to the patients at First City Dental Care. This enables the patients to have the majority of their dental needs met in one location, while keeping the prices affordable. Dr. Arnett and his friendly staff want to build and maintain a long lasting relationship with you, as well as your family and friends!
