A friendly staff greets incoming patients at Dr. Ryan S. Whalen's cozy, clean-teeth temple, where he coddles fellow mouth owners with respect. Relax with a treat from the refreshment center and Google the names of presidents’ guitars at the Internet station before getting the call to a relaxed room, which sports comfy leather chairs and warm blankets flanked by nearby monitors with your choice of programming. When you're at ease, they'll carefully examine your frontal cavern for stalactites and ancient cheek drawings before snapping a few x-rays. After a cautious and thorough cleaning and polishing using quiet, smooth tools, your chompers will emerge fresh and radiant, fully equipped to make gumless burglars jealous or to reflect enough sunlight to power a solar-powered VHS camcorder. Call ahead to schedule an appointment; both morning and evening visits are available.
