Dentists at other clinics boast of having studied implantology under the world-renowned Dr. Arun Garg. Dr. Garg began his practice at Center for Dental Implants of South Florida after two decades of building a sterling reputation in academic dentistry. During those years, he published more than 100 medical articles and wrote several textbooks that have been translated into eight different languages. He also founded the American Dental Implant Association, where he still serves as president.
Dr. Garg and his associates handle services ranging from general checkups to advanced implant procedures. The dental team was among the first to adopt technologies such as surgical lasers and the cone-beam CT scanner for facial imaging.
Dr. DiGeronimo views himself as an artist, and his cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries as his works of art. He cut his teeth training under Dr. Ralph Millard—considered by many plastic surgeons to be the father of modern plastic surgery—and has perfected his craft over the course of more than 30 years and thousands of procedures. He and his staff practice their trade in two pristine operating rooms, performing procedures that span the whole body, from face lifts and Botox injections to breast augmentation and liposuction. He also stays abreast of current aesthetic technological advances, as evidenced by his noninvasive laser treatments that include skin resurfacing and Thermage, which—like crying at the sight of a clown—make clients appear younger.
Groupon cares about your dental health because studies have shown people with strong chompers purchase more Groupons. Unfortunately, many of us are without dental insurance, but succumb far too easily to the American obsession with eating solid foods.

This Groupon can be used at either of Astoria Dental's two Miami locations.
Dr. Jean-Jacques Edderai and staff service teeth with an array of cosmetic dental services. The 30-minute in-office Lumibrite whitening treatment illuminates teeth without the use of harmful UV rays or calorie-filled toothpaste sandwiches. With protection painted onto lips and gums, Dr. Edderai isolates pearly whites and distributes a thin layer of desensitizing gel and whitening gel across the surface of the enamel. Next, the Sapphire Supreme PAC Light shines on the mixture of gels, activating their special ingredients and bleaching the teeth to spotlight incisor monologues. To help maintain white smiles, patients can take home an aftercare kit with three Lumibrite home-whitening-gel syringes, custom mouth-guard sheets, and a case.
The staff at North Miami Beach Dental dotes on teeth with both health-centric and cosmetic measures. Zoom! teeth whitening’s simple regimen can brighten teeth up to 10 shades, roughly the hue of a snowflake dipped in milk. First, an on-staff whitening wizard shields sensitive lips and gums with a cover before applying the Zoom! gel. Designed to work in tandem with the Zoom! overhead lamp, the serum and light tag-team to penetrate teeth façades and gently expunge any stains, discoloration, or biology notes left in wet cement. In less than one hour, mouths obtain a sparkle that lasts indefinitely with proper hygiene and occasional touch-ups.
Dr. Sylvan Fain knows that technology is constantly changing. That's why he furthers his dental education—which includes a doctor of dental surgery degree from University of Western Ontario and training at Nova Southeastern University—by completing regular courses in cosmetic, restorative, implant, and sedation dentistry. As part of that pledge, his office has been equipped with the latest advancements, including low-radiation digital x-ray equipment, and patients can find an array of state-of-the-art services ranging from Zoom teeth whitening and clear Invisalign braces to veneers that, like M&M's of the future, feature a thin shell made of porcelain or ceramic.
Before heading into an appointment for a routine checkup using digital x-rays or a smile-enhancing teeth-whitening treatment, patients can relax in the patient lounge and surf Hollywood Dental Care's free WiFi. Inside the treatment rooms, dentists suss out tooth decay, fit teeth with braces, and replace missing teeth with secure implants and bridges. These support crowns, which, unlike white Tic Tacs, look and function like natural teeth.
