About Our Office
Our dental office is not your typical dental clinic. We are housed in a nearly 100-year old residential structure in the heart of Brookside in Kansas City. Enjoy a cup of coffee on our porch or relax in our living area before your appointment. Our patients, particularly those who have had negative dental experiences in the past, find our office and staff approachable, refreshing and enjoyable.
About Our Commitment to Mother Earth
We take doing our part seriously. Here are just a few of the actions we take to reduce our footprint:
- Solar Panels: Installed 23 solar panels on the roof of our office, allowing the sun to generate 50-100% of our power needs.
- Bamboo Toothbrushes: And those typical plastic-laden goodie bags? We decided we could do better. That’s why we give all patients bamboo toothbrushes and eco-friendly, biodegradable floss in a recyclable paper bag.
- Smart e-Bike Hub: We encourage all patients to ride their bikes to our office and park them at our tooth-shaped bike racks and we are a Ride KC Smart e-Bike hub!

Southtown Council: 2017 Up and Comers Award
The Southtown Council and Foundation awarded Sloop Dental Co., with the 2017 Southtown Up and Comers award. The award recognizes new businesses and investments that make a splash and help improve our Kansas City community, specifically in Waldo, Brookside, and Southtown.
Sloop Dental Co. was selected for breathing new life into a long-term institution and approaching business with neighborhood values in mind.
When Jackie found an opportunity to work within walking distance of home, she grabbed it. In September 2015, Jackie took over Dr. Throckmorton’s 30-year practice. The residential structure, constructed in 1925, had been converted to an office in the 1980s. With the last major renovations completed decades ago, the property needed a refresh. As a local resident, Jackie was mindful of balancing commercial use with residential neighborhood values. Renovations (including a lot of sweat equity by she and her husband, Michael) have included re-painting and staining the building, improvements to the entry, redoing the landscaping, and working with Bike Walk Kansas City to install custom Sloop Dental bike racks. A host of interior renovations were also made to make the space welcoming, functional and kid-friendly. The resulting improvements showcase the practice while preserving the residential character of the building.
