Each of Professional Dental’s dentists attends lectures, conventions, and classes to further their knowledge of new techniques and cutting-edge technology. They put this knowledge to use during cosmetic and restorative procedures at 10 clinics with extended and weekend hours. At the start of appointments, the dentists thoroughly review the patient’s medical history for anything that could impact health. During the treatments, movies help distract patrons or allow them to watch the scary parts of The Adventures of Milo and Otis with an unshakeable doctor.
Alpenglow Dental's team of five practitioners—all Utah natives—track down the latest research and employ modern technology to maintain oral health at four local practices. Their spectrum of services encompasses many mouth-based needs, whether patients seek a regular cleaning or need veneers to conceal misaligned teeth. ClearCorrect invisible braces use removable aligners instead of metal wires for straighter smiles and more intimidating growls. The dentists are also able to lift stains from age, coffee consumption, and smoking with whitening treatments.
The doctors at Young Family Dental have been polishing premolars and buffing bicuspids for 40 years. First, a clinician will carefully and gently exam patients' mouth bones (a $48 value) to make sure everything is in top condition before gently padding mouths with x-ray bitewings to capture memories that keep skeleton scrapbooks up to date (a $32 value). Once these details are underway, the dentist will shine up teeth to a cleaner resplendence (a $71 value) and send patients home with professional home teeth whitening kits (a $100 value) that include up to 21 treatments that can make skin appear tanner and dark broom closets seem brighter. Rookie clients will be asked to fill out new patient forms prior to their dental debut.
Husband-wife team Dr. Stan Presley and Dr. Jaimee Morgan have a combined 53 years of experience tending to patients’ teeth. Their expertise ranges from routine checkups to custom veneers and dental implants. Both have authored articles on cosmetic dentistry, and Dr. Morgan travels the world while giving lectures on such topics as tooth whitening and orthodontics.
Dr. Burns and Dr. Jenkins have DDS degrees from the Temple University Kornberg School of Dentistry and the Indiana University School of Dentistry, respectively, and they put that professional training to use at Platinum Dental Care. The doctors work tirelessly to keep up with changes in dental medicine, adopting new techniques and technologies—such as implants—as they develop. While both practitioners promote oral health with a variety of cosmetic and rehabilitative dental procedures including teeth whitening, veneers, and fillings, Dr. Burns focuses on saving teeth through full-mouth rehabilitation and by depositing extra teeth into a piggy bank. Dr. Burns also has a degree in psychology, which helps him empathize with patients and mitigate their concern over dental care.
General dentist Dr. Randy Roberts and his team gussy up grins with treatments lavished on chompers at their modern, glass-walled office. Chair-nestled patients open up during free consultations—conducted in English or Spanish—during which Dr. Roberts reads each tooth's star chart. Dr. Roberts belongs to both the national and state dental associations, and is certified in Invisalign, ClearCorrect, treatment planning, implant placement, and bone grafting.
After completing his degree in dentistry, Dr. Daniel West stepped up his game by signing on for an additional 100-plus hours of continuing education, including a residency in dental implants. This expertise comes in handy on a daily basis at his practice, where Dr. West crafts porcelain crowns and veneers in minutes using a special CEREC machine. The doctor also uses technology for preventive care, including an intraoral camera to get a close-up of chompers and digital x-rays to check teeth’s inner chambers for squatting cavities.
