Dan Bednarczyk, D.D.S.
Dr. Dan Bednarczyk received a Bachelor of Science in Genetics from the University of Kansas. He remained in Lawrence for two more years doing post-graduate teaching and research in Molecular Biology. Dr. Bednarczyk graduated with his Doctorate from the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Dentistry in 2001. Upon graduation from Dental School, Dr. Bednarczyk was awarded the AAOMS Implantology Award for his superior work with the placement and restoration of dental implants. He has since completed advanced training and coursework in the surgical placement of dental implants.
Following graduation, he became a General Practice Resident at the University of Iowa-Hospitals & Clinics in Iowa City. This program furthered his cosmetic and restorative skills in addition to providing advanced clinical training in oral surgery and intravenous sedation. Upon completion of his residency, Dr. Bednarczyk relocated to Denver and was an associate in a large group practice for three years. Very soon after the birth of their first child, the Bednarczyks returned home to Johnson County. He opened Sunnybrook Dental in November of 2006.
Dr. Bednarczyk completed the requirements and became a Fellow in the Academy of General Dentistry in 2009, recognizing his leadership in the field. He is currently working towards his requirements for the distinction of Master of the Academy of General Dentistry. Dr. Dan is a member of the American Dental Society of Anesthesiology, and his surgical residency at Iowa and subsequent continuing education has earned him a special sedation certificate, in which he is one of only a few dentists in the state with this level of certification. He is also one of only a handful of dentists in the state that has staff privileges at three local hospitals. Dr. Dan’s brother is part of the JCDS program and was his main inspiration to obtaining this level of distinction in sedation dentistry - so he can provide him and many other patients with the dental care they need, but find it difficult to receive.
He is a member of the American Dental Association, Kansas Dental Association and Fifth District Dental Society. Dr. Dan has volunteered his dentistry at free clinics in The Dominican Republic and Venezuela, along with the local organizations of Kansas Mission of Mercy, Missouri Mission of Mercy, and he was one of the founding members of and actively volunteers for TeamSmile in Kansas City.
Dr. Dan enjoys playing golf in his spare time, but he admits that skiing is the only sport he does well! Most of his spare time is spent with his wife and kids, and shuttling them to their various activities. He coaches for a variety of the teams that his son and daughter are a part of, although he doesn’t do much of the teaching for his daughter’s love for ballet and involvement in KC Ballet. As a family, they try to get to Colorado or Montana for camping, fishing and skiing each year.
