Patients muster up at Austin Sixth Street Smiles, presenting their teeth for inspection from Dr. Abena Asare, a former US Army dentist, and Carissa Alvarado, a former US Air Force dental assistant. In addition to preventive exams and cleanings, the dental team measures patients for custom-fitted mouthguards, which can protect athletes' teeth when colliding with another player or fans' teeth when eating stale crackerjacks. Specialty services, such as sedation dentistry and laser dentistry—which does everything from reducing bacteria to whitening teeth—are also available.
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.

Dr. Erica D. McConley's meticulous attention to detail, combined with her innate sense of compassion, garnered her a coveted Dean’s Leadership Award at the University of Iowa College of Dentistry. Now, at Central Park Dental, she and her staff emphasize patient interaction and feedback, believing that trust and communication set patients at ease. To further build a sense of trust, Dr. McConley outfits her office with up-to-date dental technology designed to keep patients safe while providing accurate diagnoses. Intraoral cameras espy cavities and decay in the mouth’s furthest nooks and crannies. Digital x-rays reveal the hidden goings-on inside bone and teeth while reducing the radiation and nostalgia emitted by traditional x-rays by up to 90%.
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.
Drs. Shelby Denman, Chad Denman, and Jaydee Marrero don?t just want their patients to leave with healthy teeth. They also want their patients to leave happy with their experience at Family Tree Dental Group. And that starts before patients even arrive for their appointment. The dental practice reminds people of upcoming appointments with friendly emails, text messages, and singing telegrams. Once in the office, patients relax in ergonomic dental chairs with blankets and pillows while one of the dentists checks teeth for signs of disease and decay. Each treatment room is outfitted with a television boasting 200 available channels to help pass the time during digital x-rays, mercury-free fillings, and teeth-whitening services.
