Gerald W. McDougal, DDS has practiced dentistry for more than four decades, but that doesn't mean he's out of touch with contemporary technology. Along with his two partners, Dr. McDougal enlists modern tools to diagnose and treat dental issues. They range from digital x-rays and intraoral cameras to the Diagnodent, a piece of equipment that uses fluorescent laser light to unearth hidden cavities. Whereas rotary endodontics makes the root-canal process less painful by using a slow-spinning drill to quickly and easily complete the procedure.
Floss Dental's dentists and surgeons, many of whom are often featured on local TV stations, may specialize in preventative care, but they also beautify mouths with cosmetic- and reconstructive-surgery services, such as veneers, Invisalign, and dental implants. They harness panoramic x-rays to get a complete view of the teeth, and they broadcast these pictures on a TV, which helps them explain which treatments are necessary and to point out which tooth would look best with an inlaid diamond chip.
Floss Dental encourages patients to keep coming back by offering free Invisalign consultations and free Boost whitening once a year to those who maintain their regular cleanings. Flat-screen TVs and satellite radio entertain patients during their procedures, and sedation dentistry keeps them free from anxiety in a dream-like state.
Invisalign straightens crooked chompers through a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of good old-fashioned orthodontia. Four practices feature orthodontists specially trained and certified in the Invisalign process, which eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain ($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.

To understand Kenneth Kassabian, D.D.S. General Dentist’s passion for blending science with art, one need only look at his impressive collection of custom-built guitars. When he isn’t shredding the frets on one of his trademark axes, the jack-of-all-trades dentist draws on more than 30 years of dental experience to tend to teeth of all ages with general and orthodontic treatments. Since opening his practice in 1995, Dr. Kassabian has discovered that each patient deals with a visit to the dentist differently; he and his professional staff thus offer sedation options that range from general anesthesia to the doctor’s own soothing covers of Air Supply songs.
