The Tooth Fairy is a burglarizing fetishist specializing in black-market ivory trade, and she must be stopped. Today’s Groupon helps keep teeth in mouths and out of the hands of maniacal, winged phantasms. For $59, new patients get a full oral checkup at So-Well Dental Associates in Old Town. Your Groupon is good for a dental exam ($75), digital x-rays (up to $115, depending on how many are needed), and comprehensive cleaning ($75) including a fluoride treatment ($35)—a combined value of up to $300. This is a great chance to make sure your mouthparts are in optimal oral order without the need for dental insurance. So-Well is open Monday through Friday; call ahead for an appointment.
A certified team of teeth tamers led by experienced dentist Dr. Zenobia L. Sowell is the friendly force behind each checkup. The initial exam is a comprehensive exploration into the crevices and caps of each tooth. A dental technician will probe as far as the eye can go before suiting up with a bionic x-ray eye. Patients will receive a set of two bitewing x-rays, and, if needed, a full mouth set of x-rays that will reveal trouble zones and signs of decay.
The following meticulous cleaning uses the latest in dental tech to give the heave-ho to any tartar and plaque buildup, clearing the way for future generations of inevitable meal remnants. Treatment will conclude in a manner recommended by the American Dental Association—with an enthusiastic closed-fisted high five and fluoride treatment. You'll leave with a smile bright enough to melt hearts, including your own, so be careful around mirrors.
- One of my front teeth had been broken when I was a teen. I went to my family dentist from childhood and everytime the doctor bonded it the bonding would come off shortly after. I went to Dr. Sowell and she bonded the tooth and 10 years later it still holds. I am very pleased with the job she did. She was gentle and kind. – nmalloy61, Kudzu
- I had a dental emergency and I couldn't be more pleased with the care I received from Dr. Sowell. I was scheduled immediately and she and her staff were extremely friendly and helpful. – Johan R., Insider Pages
- Dr. Sowell was very patient with me. I needed to have several dental procedures over a period of time, due to my own dental neglect. She scheduled my appointments so that she could do several procedures at one time and not make my dental care a year-long endeavor…I am glad that she's my dentist and have recommended her to others. – Anonymous, Insider Pages
