David Suchman, D.D.S., F.A.G.D., F.A.C.D.

Dr. David Suchman treats his patients like family and so he gives them much more than just a dental checkup. Combining technical skill, artistry, and compassion in every appointment, what Dr. Suchman gives his patients is confidence in their smiles.

With Dr. Suchman’s desire to provide patients with the smile of their dreams and for patients to keep their teeth for a life time, comes a commitment to do everything it takes to make that a reality. That means even though Dr. Suchman is long past dental school, he continues to study. He has completed two separate and elite continuing education programs that only 7% of dentist ever achieve.  

After completing the Advanced Education General Dentistry residency that focuses on complex restorative cases, Dr. Suchman jumped right into one of the most rigorous continuing education programs in his quest to become a Fellow in the Academy of General Dentistry. He completed 500 hours of education and passed a stringent exam to earn his Fellowship in 2007. He did all of that in his ongoing effort to improve his patients’ smiles, their confidence and lifetime function of their teeth.

Even with such a busy patient and continuing education schedule, Dr. Suchman still finds time to give back to the community. He donates his time and skills to the Dental Life Line Network, Missouri Mission of Mercy, Give Kids a Smile and conducts dental screenings for the Independence School District. And when he’s finished with that, Dr. Suchman still finds time to participate in three dental study clubs and serves as Programs Chair for the Greater Kansas City Dental Society and the Midwest Dental Conference. In 2013, Dr. Suchman served as President of the Greater Kansas City Dental Association. 

When not at the office, you can find Dr. Suchman with his wife, Kelly, and son, Jacob, enjoying local sporting events, watching and coaching Jacob's sporting activities, boating or skiing down the slopes in Utah and Colorado.
