Joseph J. Kim, DDS, PS and his friendly support staff clean and straighten smiles in their state-of-the-art family dental practice. During a routine checkup, a hygienist polishes chompers to remove plaque and graffiti left by delinquent taste buds and snaps candid photos of tooth roots with a full set of x-rays. Dr. Kim examines the images and the mouth, doling out his expert opinion on the oral state of affairs.
Dr. Mike Jensen and his staff of dedicated tooth tamers spruce up smiles and enhance oral health with delicately administered general and cosmetic dental care. During each dental exam, Dr. Jensen investigates symptoms of dental disrepair, such as plaque, decay, gum disease, or abandoned horse trailers. An x-ray device takes orthodontic analyses to a supersensory level of perception, providing a window into subsurface phenomena and any warning signs invisible to the human eye.
A certified administer of Botox injections, Mountain View Dental's dentist, Dr. Benjamin Crusan, targets furrowed brow lines with 20 units of FDA-approved Botox Cosmetic. In the approximately 10-minute treatment, patients may experience minimal, brief discomfort as Dr. Crusan injects the Botox proteins, which aim to block nerve impulses in overactive muscles between the eyebrows and soften the appearance of wrinkles accrued from age or hours spent impersonating a pet shar pei. Results may continue to develop for up to 30 days after the injection, and many clients maintain smoother skinplanes for up to four months after the treatment.
With flat-screen televisions, leather chairs and couches, and gentle light that pours in from large windows and dimmed studio fixtures, creature comforts prevail at Premier Dental. Dr. Amy Dietrich uses modern technology to perform treatments in both cosmetic and general dentistry, such as recontouring uneven gum tissue, detecting cavities with lasers, and figuring out which tooth killed Colonel Mustard in the conservatory. Dr. Dietrich's experience spans CEREC and laser dentistry, earning her a collection of awards for excellence in her field. Together with her team, she restores tooth health and whitens grins with care.
At Downtown Dental Care, Drs. Lance D. Bailey and Kirk Christianson combine their years of experience in general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry in an office with a compassion-oriented philosophy. The doctors demonstrate their commitment to patients by participating in not-for-profit dentistry as well as such charitable organizations such as UNICEF, Pride Northwest, and Donated Dentistry, a clinic that administers free dental care for patients without insurance.
The doctors also devote themselves to continually honing their craft. Dr. Bailey cares for kids through his training in pediatric dentistry and for seniors with his advanced education in dentures. His training in laser dentistry, IV sedation, and CEREC one-visit crowns keeps him on the cutting edge of the industry. Meanwhile, Dr. Christianson’s advanced skills restore smiles beyond just the teeth with hard and soft tissue grafting and sinus surgery.
The team works to keep patients comfortable during each treatment. Every patient who wanders through the door, or chews their way through the wall, gets treated as an individual. The doctors thoroughly explain each treatment in order to reduce anxiety. During treatments, patients can keep tabs on the outside world with a flat-panel television and a broad window, both situated in front of the operatory chair.
