With hundreds of locations across the country, Right Dental Group represents a collection of oral-healthcare professionals who deliver a variety of quality dental services. The collective places an emphasis on relationship building—meaning patients can confess their most egregious toffee-apple trespasses while receiving a teeth scrubbing delivered with precision and understanding. Each of the dentists is prescreened for a consistent record of excellence and the ability to efficiently locate a cavity in a toothstack. A skilled doctor and staff will skillfully probe forgotten mouth corners, eradicating tartar and expunging plaque from bacterial lairs. The included x-rays will help uncover any oral problem areas that cannot be seen with the shamelessly naked eye. After treatment, clients will be privy to tips that explain the proper brushing and flossing techniques to ward off gum disease and tooth loss, ensuring tongue-stoppers remain firmly rooted to the rest of the skeletal system.
For Dr. Julie Elessawi, it’s good to be a dentist in the 21st century. With more advanced dental technology rolling in every year, patients now have a better-than-ever chance of keeping their own natural teeth for life. When that isn’t possible, dental implants replace missing teeth with crowns sculpted from modern materials to blend seamlessly with neighboring molars and their prized collection of daguerreotypes. Natural chompers that need refurbishing can don porcelain veneers or brighten after applications of hydrogen peroxide.
Dr. Elessawi doesn’t stop at mouth-beauty alone. She and her team, first and foremost, stress the importance of oral health and put this philosophy into action by championing preventative care. The team believes that today’s precision tools make it easier for patients to overcome the dread associated with visiting the dentist. The doctor also steps out of the mouth entirely to target facial wrinkles with Botox injections for new patients, new new patients, and not-so-new new patients.
Seeking to provide customers the speedy brilliance of its name, White Lightning Smiles supplies teeth-whitening pens designed for at-home application. With a 20% hydrogen-peroxide formula, the company boasts an advantage over other pens, which typically use a concentration between 2% and 6%. Users brush the pen's tip—which contains about 30 applications or a month's supply—against their teeth after brushing and flossing, at which point the solution takes to polishing and scaring away stains in a 15-minute session.
A bright, airy office greets patients at Shore Smiles Family & Cosmetic Dentistry. The office's state-of-the-art equipment enables University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine graduate Dr. David M. Herman and his team of dental professionals to carry out procedures such as teeth whitening, cleanings, and dental implants.
Invisalign straightens crooked chompers through a combination of highly advanced 3-D computer graphics and the spells of good old-fashioned orthodontia. Orthodontists specially trained and certified in the Invisalign process eschew cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial exam, including x-rays and photos ($325), will pave the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift your walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies with each customer (it can run anywhere from $2,000 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 to put toward that final cost.

For a dentist, a normal day at the office brings little anxiety. But for an apprehensive patient, it can trigger nerves and stress. That's why the staff at aptly named Apprehensive Patient dental offices work hard to temper guests' jitters. The most potent calm comes in the form of anti-anxiety medications, nitrous oxide (AKA "sweet air"), and intravenous sedatives. These soothing agents ensure that patients are laid-back and comfortable no matter the scale of their scheduled treatment, which can range from a simple exam and cleaning to an Invisalign fitting or application of porcelain veneers.
