July 5, 2018

Kansas City, Missouri is home to wonderful, creative, diverse people and the activities and events are set to match that. This week and weekend have so many fun, eclectic events for you and your family to enjoy. While the summer is still going strong, it can be a great time to get in for a dental exam and cleaning before the hectic schedules of fall swing back in.
