Without teeth, tongues would slither out of mouths and go on to lead unfulfilling lives catching raindrops and licking strangers' faces. Keep a stir-crazy taste-muscle contained in a gleaming cage with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a comprehensive dental exam, full set of x-rays, and cleaning at Wyte Smiles (a $285 value), located on South Grape Street.
Named one of Denver’s top dentists by 5280 magazine, Dr. Wyte and his friendly, talented team maintain healthy smiles with preventative oral health care using state-of-the-art technology and cutting-edge techniques. Staff drill sergeants first explore mouthy nooks and crannies with a thorough examination that includes an oral-cancer screening, periodontal-disease check, TMJ evaluation, and identification of possible meteorites. To catch potential problems unseen by human eyes, digital x-rays will take snapshots of teeth families for subsequent analysis and proud display on fireplace mantles. Finally, a grin-galvanizing cleaning scrubs sullied teeth to free them of built-up plaque, leaving them fresh and gleaming.
Though Wyte Smiles sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
As a former active-duty dentist in the Coast Guard and a current practitioner for the Colorado Air National Guard, Dr. Josh Wyte knows how to defend mouths against microbial agents. At Wyte Smiles, his focus on preventive care and friendly demeanor earned him a spot on 5280 magazine's 2010 Top Dentist list. In treatment rooms with plenty of natural light, staffers put patients at ease with complimentary beverages, Internet access, headphones, and blankets. The office has a spacious waiting area where guests can watch television or draw up a short quiz on the origins of wooden teeth for Dr. Wyte, who received his undergraduate degree in history before completing his dental studies.
