Mission Statement & Philosophy

Yost Family Dental's passion is to be the most admired dental practice for our "WOW" customer service and unwavering community involvement.


First and foremost, it starts with family. Everything we do is centered around building a family atmosphere of trust, comfort, compassion, and fun. When you're within the walls of our practice, you'll feel as though you're within the walls of your own home. We strive to strengthen our own relationships in our personal lives, which naturally and effortlessly extend into our familial relationships as a dental team. With such a foundation among our staff, the home-like atmosphere envelopes all who enter our practice and to all who receive our comfortable and kind care. It is no wonder that our customers are not just satisfied- they are LOYAL, just like family.

Our commitment to familial relationships is also realized through our focus on community involvement. Dr. Yost and his team firmly believe in the bonds of the community. We feel it to be our duty and responsibility to contribute to strengthening the communities of Southwest Missouri, especially here at home, Carthage. Whether it is working with local schools and churches, crisis centers, humanitarian projects, or even the animal shelter, we know our influence extends beyond the walls of our practice. We invite all to participate with us!


Dr. Yost and his team are committed to excellence in dentistry. Not only are the skills with which each member possesses above "industry standard", but we also strive for excellence in caring for the individual, not just the mouth. We have found that when combining Dr. Yost's skillful, gentle hand with the highest possible quality materials, the longevity of your dental care is greatly enhanced. You will happily go home with a smile you won't want to hide, and with an experience that will cause you to say, "WOW!".


We treat the whole individual. Often the assumption is that "what happens in the mouth, stays in the mouth". However, conditions of the mouth could be reflections of problems happening in other organs of the body. Conversely, poor conditions of the mouth could also effect other organs of the body. Equipped with this professional knowledge, training, and compassion, Dr. Yost and his team will take time to treat the entire individual, comprehensively. Dr. Yost is often the first to find minor issues before they become a major (and expensive) problem.


Dr. Yost desires to provide a "landing place" for your insurance that you have worked hard to obtain. He recognizes the spirit of industry and hard-work that thrive in the communities we serve and thus has positioned himself as the major in-network provider for the vast majority of insurance companies in this area. If you have that benefit, you should be able to use it. You will be "WOW-ed" at the seamless partnership that exists between Dr. Yost's high-quality care and your insurance provider.

Additionally, many comfortable and affordable financing options exist to help deliver quality dental health to ALL working individuals and families of southwest Missouri, whether it's WITH or WITHOUT insurance.


While there are no warranties on the services and care provided, we do stand behind our work. Therefore, our promise to you is that we will repair or replace any fixed restoration (crown, inlay, or fixed bridge) at no charge for one to five years as long as you adhere to your recommended schedule of continuing care. In other words, if you keep current with your check-up appointments and follow our preventive instructions, we will honor this promise. Patients who do not floss or brush as they have been instructed, or who do not come in for their check-ups as scheduled, must assume personal responsibility for any problems that may occur.
