I have a lot of anxiety about going to the dentist and have struggled for the longest time to find a dentist office that I feel comfortable going to. Starting with the front desk staff all the way to the dentist and his assistant I had a great experience. Dr. Killeen and his staff were kind, calm, and patient. They listened to all of my concerns and fears and explained what they were doing each step of the way. They often asked me throughout my procedure how I was doing and checked to make sure I felt comfortable. What I felt was going to be an incredibly overwhelming procedure turned into a quick and painless one. I could not believe how quickly the work on my teeth was completed. Their office has several options for my procedure, options for relaxing you during the procedure, and discussed with me the applicable care plan for me ahead of time so I knew what portion of the bill I would be responsible for. Their office is clean and well taken care of. I highly recommend Capital Dental!
Very friendly staff and very clean facility. Appreciate being talked through everything they are going to do every step of the way and amazing how they make it so painless. Thank you Capital Dental for the amazing work.
All the staff are super friendly and understanding of how afraid I am. They eased my mind and made sure I understood everything about my upcoming procedure.
The BEST!!! My anxiety about the procedure I needed kept me from seeing a dentist for too many years. They dealt with that and eased my mind through the entire process. I couldn’t have asked for a better group of professionals. Amazing work guys!! Thank you!!!
Today was my second time at Capital Dental with Dr. Chapek and I couldn’t say enough good things about his work. I’m not sure if he’s just that good or just very gentle, but I’ve had the best experience and my recovery from both appointments has been awesome! I would definitely recommend it here, especially if you feel anxious about the dentist.
I shared my past experiences and my current issues. They absolutely did an excellent job of listening and talking through everything happening. I would definitely go back again and would recommend them to anyone!! I have high anxiety and they did wonders!!
The receptionist, hygienist, and dentist all eased my fears, acknowledged my anxiety, provided helpful treatment options and I left knowing I had a dentist for my whole life!
My experience as a new patient is the best that I have had in years. I appreciate the thoroughness and detail provided in the exam and cleaning. Dr. Killeen and staff take an interest in patient comfort and overall satisfaction with your dental care.

All the staff were kind and understanding. They made me feel comfortable. This was the first time the hygienist hasn’t hurt me with the scraping tool. The hygienist and doctor were thorough in their explanations and wanted to help me. All around a great experience.

I have always loved the care I received from Capital Dental. I attribute the fact that I have a healthy and bright smile to the high level of care I’ve received over the years. I was greeted by an enthusiastic an positive staff when I got there and promptly got in at the scheduled time. I look forward to continuing my relationship with his office and I will highly recommend Capital Dental to family and friends.

Using Technology to Empower Optimal Health
At Capital Dental, it is our goal to help each of our patients achieve optimal oral health through convenient, comprehensive family care. That is why we are dedicated to offering cutting-edge technology and treatment techniques to the community of Lincoln. We invite you to learn more about the technology and services we offer.
Digital X-rays are an essential diagnostic tool. They allow us to carefully examine the health of your teeth and jawbone, diagnose health concerns, and design treatment plans without the need for traditional film X-rays. Compared to film X-rays digital X-rays omit up to 90 percent less radiation.
This innovative handheld camera allows us to examine your mouth in greater detail. We use this diagnostic tool to zoom in closely on specific teeth, providing a high-quality image of your teeth. The images are displayed on a screen for you and our dentist to review, giving you a better understanding of your diagnosis and treatment.
Cone Beam Computed Tomography
Known as CBCT, this advanced imaging technique uses a cone-shaped X-ray beam. The cone beam rotates around your head to create a highly detailed 3D image of your mouth to help us accurately design your treatment plan.
iTero Digital Scanners
Our office uses iTero digital scanners to create a highly detailed 3D model of your teeth. This allows us to design custom-made Invisalign invisible aligners with incredible accuracy.
The Invisalign invisible aligner system uses a series of custom-made trays to gently shift your teeth over time. Invisalign can help you achieve a straight, beautiful smile without the need for traditional metal braces.
We offer professional teeth whitening services with the Opalescence whitening system. Opalescence uses oxygen molecules to penetrate your enamel and break down stains at a molecular level. You can achieve a dramatically whiter smile in just one visit.
