A posse of tooth clinicians staffs multiple area locations, all under the direction of Dr. Michael Heiland, named one of St. Louis Magazine's top dentists for three years in a row. The doctor and his dental hygienists perform preventative, cosmetic, and pediatric services ranging from traditional exams and x-rays to advanced teeth-whitening procedures. The team also upholds its mission statement by keeping patients informed, outfitting them with all the facts they need to maintain smiles and coveted high school titles, such as "Most Likely to Be Famous as Long as He or She Maintains Clean Teeth."
Joan Krueger—a certified hypnotherapist who has been practicing since 1994—has her own metaphor to describe the subconscious mind: she likens it to a filing cabinet filled with the programs that help you function. She believes the key is to rewrite the programs, changing the information so we can function in different ways.
At Joan Krueger Hypnosis, she helps to change habits such as smoking cigarettes overeating, or biting your fingernails. She does this by bringing clients into a relaxed state during which their subconscious mind becomes receptive to suggestions. She then delivers the suggestion that will enable you to create the changes you desire. Krueger claims a high success rate: according to her website, 80% of clients are able to quit smoking after just one visit.

Dr. Cisneros and his professional team of associates recognize that a person's face and smile are the first things others notice. To ensure their clients can put their best face forward, the team melds dental care and aesthetic dentistry with cosmetic injections. Invisalign braces realign wandering teeth, implants and crowns replace missing teeth, and lasers prepare teeth for fillings by eradicating decay and any aliens hidden between molars. With Botox and Rejuvederm injections, the team helps clients to shed facial wrinkles and plump up skin for a more youthful appearance.
There are only 417 associate fellows of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry. University Dental Care’s Dr. Samir Ruvinov is one of them. He and Dr. Shirley Dillard combine 46 years of experience, and they put that experience to work delivering patients the most comfortable and pain-free treatments possible. To do that, they employ the latest tools available to them, such as rotary endodontics, which is an electrical handpiece that allows them to accomplish root canals more efficiently and with less discomfort. They also capture 360-degree views of the mouth, head, sinuses, and bones with Panorex, giving them the advantage of identifying oral-health concerns with greater ease than standard x-rays. Specializing in everything from implants to whitenings and Invisalign’s clear plastic teeth aligners, they perform all manner of general, surgical, and cosmetic dentistry—unlike a Blu-ray edition of C-SPAN’s Book TV, their technology does not go to waste. For patient convenience, the dentists offer Saturday office hours and online appointments.
Once clients are comfortably ensconced in the dentist's chair, the oral exam begins. The resident toothsperts will check each individual incisor, cuspid, bicuspid, and molar for chips, cracks, staining, and loitering Minnesota Twins, ensuring that enamel bones are sound for biting, and gums and soft tissues will be inspected for any signs of periodontal disease. The x-ray battery exposes the roots and inner sanctums of oral stalagmites to reveal any soft spots, problem areas, or cavities. When your mouth checks out as mammalian and your teeth are cleared for takeoff, the professional teeth cleaning begins. An expert cleaning removes all the buildup and surface staining that regular brushing and flossing can't—hardened tartar, hard-to-reach plaque, and bacterial graffiti along the gum line.
