Dr. Ganga Thota of Breeze Dental Group has been cleaning, whitening, and straightening smiles for more than 13 years in an office that focuses on patient pampering. As she affixes porcelain veneers or treats TMJ, Dr. Thota's patients recline in dental chairs that gently massage them and watch movies and TV shows or practice singing with dental tools in their mouth. A separate spa room further eases tension with pre- and posttreatment shiatsu massages. Outside, both waiting children and adults can pass the time by playing games on the office's iPads.
Breeze Dental Group also aims to minimize its carbon footprint by keeping electronic dental records to reduce paper use and snapping digital x-rays to eliminate both glow-in-the-dark teeth and the use of hazardous materials. An onsite water-treatment system provides medical-grade water, and electronic faucets curb water waste.
