Dr. Joyce Lee Wong brings her friendly demeanor and a doctor of dental surgery degree from Baylor College of Dentistry to her practice at Avenue Dental. Aided by a pair of dental assistants, she maintains and enhances smiles with basic check-ups, implants, cosmetic treatments, and braces. Her modern studio comes equipped with advanced technologies such as low-radiation x-rays, sedation options, and chair-side screens for displaying mouth images or viewing cable's latest reality programs about cheating, backstabbing gums.
The moment Dr. Lisa Ochoa learned that "a person without teeth would lose an average of 10 years off their lifespan" was the moment she decided to become a dentist. Dr. Ochoa is one of Westlake Premier Dentistry's four dentists. Led by the clinic's chief dentist, Dr. Thomas Ince, Dr. Ochoa and her colleagues Drs. Chad Orlich and David Burden take an overall-wellness approach when treating their patients, stressing the importance of regular cleanings that aim to promote long-term health and minty-fresh exhalations.
While waiting to meet with one of the doctors, guests may sip on complimentary cups of coffee and tea. A children's video-game room occupies fidgety fingers, and an Internet café with WiFi entertains laptops that have come in to be straightened. Those visiting the homey dental office relax amid pale-yellow walls and treatment rooms with ceiling-mounted televisions.
Since graduating from the prestigious University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, Dr. James Lee has been practicing dentistry for more than 15 years. Now at Star Dental of Austin, Dr. Lee performs general family dentistry services alongside advanced restorative and cosmetic procedures, including dental implants and Invisalign treatments. He also performs fillings and root canals with Waterlase technology, a drilling alternative free of heat, pressure, and vibration that, like a stroll through a Las Vegas hotel fountain, features a laser and a refreshing spray of water.
When Dr. Gretchen Hoover purchased About Smiles’ dental facility, she was dissatisfied with the look and feel of the practice. So she and her husband remodeled the office themselves, adding amenities such as a gourmet coffee bar, free WiFi, and cable TV in every room.
Dr. Hoover’s vision, drive, and commitment to her patients’ comfort are also apparent in her approach to dentistry. She draws on the most advanced technology available as she performs preventive, cosmetic, and restorative services for adults and children. Intraoral cameras provide a close-up view of teeth, and low-radiation digital x-rays, panoramic x-rays, and computer 3-D scans reveal details invisible to both the naked eye and a dog's sense of smell. Computer-assisted CEREC technology allows Dr. Hoover to create crowns for patients in one visit.
