Like glaciers and tectonic plates, teeth are slowly yet surely on the move as they attempt to turn their host’s mouth into frozen tundra and then rip it apart like a bite-sized Pangaea. Defeat devious teeth with today’s Groupon: for $2,599, you get a complete Invisalign treatment from Ginger Price, DDS (a $5,435 value).
Voted Best Dentist in Phoenix by Arizona Foothills Magazine in 2009, and one of Phoenix Magazine's 2011 Top Dentists, Dr. Ginger Price puts incisors back in line with Invisalign, a system that straightens crooked chompers using a combination of highly advanced 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The process eschews cumbersome braces for clear removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment.

Depending on the client’s teeth, as few as 12 or as many as 48 separate aligners will need to be worn during a period of 6–15 months before the straightening effect finally self-actuates in a sudden burst of pink smoke and slobber. Aligners are only removed when eating, brushing, flossing, or modeling a finely clenched jaw.
Ginger Price, DDS
Though family cosmetic dentistry is her day job, Dr. Ginger Price moonlights as a celebrity. Her presence in multiple magazines and on news programs has helped garner her clinic international recognition, and local awards—including a slot in Phoenix magazine's peer-nominated Top Dentists listings for 2011 and 2012 and a 2013 Best of Scottsdale Reader's Choice award from Scottsdale Living—bespeak her popularity at home.
Dr. Price's acclaim is due in part to her artistic background. She channels a college education in fine arts as she restores pearly whites, merging a practiced technical approach with an eye for beauty. Whether she is straightening grins with Invisalign, covering gaps with veneers, or installing dental implants, she strives to honor her patients' vision of a flattering smile—a more personalized philosophy than simply giving each of them an orange slice to wear over damaged teeth.
