Dr. Bryan J. Terhune Jr. and his fellow oral custodians at Terhune Dental shine up people tusks using a custom, at-home teeth-whitening system that erases the dental vandalism perpetrated by coffee, tea, and tobacco. During the first visit, Dr. Terhune will create a model of the patient's mouth, complete with scaled buildings and teeny-tiny trees, which he will later use to produce custom-fitted clear plastic trays. Patients return for a second visit to collect the trays and a special whitening solution and to review complete instructions on how to proceed. The rest of the whitening process occurs over the next few weeks in the comfort of patients' homes, cars, or underground bunkers, where they’ll wear the trays overnight or twice daily for 30 minutes. Dr. Terhune will ensure that Groupon buyers are qualified for teeth whitening before administering the treatment.
For more than 35 years, dentists at American Dental Centers have polished pearly whites and prevented dental disease with thorough exams. At each of the 14 locations that dot Northern and Central Ohio, patients walk in or schedule appointments so they don’t have to scrape off plaque using chew toys. The center maintains a 24-hour phone line so that patients can arrange to have emergencies treated as soon as possible, and it also offers a Forever White program, in which patients pay a one-time fee and then receive take-home bleaching treatments for as long as they attend their regular three- or six-month check-ups.
When Dr. John Neary isn’t editing textbooks, publishing articles, or lecturing worldwide, he’s performing restorative oral procedures at his medical center. He and fellow dental surgeon Dr. Matthew Pavlick helm a range of surgical operations, from corrective jaw surgery to wisdom-teeth removal to stuck-on wax-lip removal. The surgery center also houses a cosmetic branch, where doctors perform rhinoplasties, face lifts, and Botox injections as well as laser hair-removal and other non-invasive procedures.
During his three decades of dental experience, which included a six-year stint as a general dental officer for the United States Air Force, Dr. John N. Santin has seen a lot of smiles. And from both of his Akron Area Oral, Maxillofacial & Facial Cosmetic Surgery Center offices, Dr. Santin continues to gaze at pearly whites, keeping teeth healthy and bright with surgical and cosmetic dentistry services including corrective jaw surgery, wisdom-teeth extractions, and bone grafting. But teeth aren’t the only thing on Dr. Santin’s mind. He also provides his patients with a range of cosmetic treatments, from rhinoplasty and facial implants to Botox injections and chemical peels. The offices even come equipped with advanced ActiveFX and DeepFX fractional lasers, which are designed to blast away layers of sun damage, dead skin cells, and temporary tattoos that seeped down into the dermal layer.
