Practicing out of his state-of-the-art Eagle River location, Brett Keeler, DDS uses advanced technology to care for the teeth of children and adults. His expertise spans both general dentistry services and cosmetic treatments such as ClearCorrect invisible braces and chairside teeth whitening that eschews lasers in favor of fast-acting Opalescence gel. To restore cavity-ridden teeth, he offers fillings that, like any werewolf's household, are free of silver, and can custom-mill same-day crowns and veneers, thanks to a cutting-edge Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics (CEREC).
Invisalign straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial 30-minute 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. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies for each customer, and normal-bite cases cost $8,000 on average; this Groupon gets you $2,000 toward that final cost. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
Dr. Broc Brimhal and the staff at South Anchorage Dental Center brighten smiles with one-hour in-office teeth-whitening treatments. During the treatments, tooth technicians apply a layer of protective gel to sensitive gums and soft tissue, then swaddle teeth in whitening gel. The low levels of heat from the ezlase 940 laser activate the whitening gel, which works to break up stains and yellow tones without creating high levels of tooth sensitivity or intermolar conflict. Finally, the smile-savvy staff takes impressions of teeth in order to create trays for at-home touchup, and imparts instructions for keeping pearly whites visibly brighter and away from melted crayons.
Doctor of Chiropractic Gerald Lizer prides himself on his "whole person approach" to caring for patients. Because many conditions are interconnected, he and the staff at Eagle River Chiropractic tailor different treatments to each patient. For example, stress may lead to weight loss, which may exasperate back pain—and the practice's professionals can help patients reduce stress in a New Reality program, address weight loss in a fat-burning workshop, and ease aches with chiropractic services.
A familial knack for dentistry is obvious at Alaska Center for Dentistry, which was founded in 1977 by Dr. C. Michael Sage. In the ensuing decades, the clinic has grown into two locations that are home to a roster of experienced dental doctors and technicians, including Dr. Sage's son, Dr. C. Michael Sage Jr.—also a dentist. Kicking back in chairs with warm neck wraps and donning headphones, patients undergo a range of treatments, from cosmetic whitening procedures to routine examinations, screenings, cleanings, and tongue-reflex tests. Happy murmurs drift from kids, who stay entertained with engaging movies and toys while parents undergo exams and procedures.
Drs. Lauren Evans, Jacob Frank, and Kara Reynolds protect the power of sight at Wolf Eye Center. The trio of talented optometrists—who studied ocular disease during their residencies—cares for eyes with everything from standard eye exams to glaucoma treatments. In addition to caring for adult patients, the team of eye professionals also treats little ones, helping correct lazy eyes and outfitting budding athletes with sports goggles.
While the doctors detect disease and calibrate prescriptions, the center’s knowledgeable staff helps clients peruse a selection of frames from the likes of Gucci, Coach, and Vera Wang. Frames are filled with thin, high-index lenses or Transitions lenses, which shift from clear to tinted when exposed to sun or a pageant queen’s sequined evening gown.
