Dentists oversee the operation at Gordon Dental Care: Drs. Peter G. Gordon and Ellen K. Friedman. Even better, each one brings something unique to the table, notably Dr. Gordon's master status from the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, Dr. Friedman's Invisalign certification, and both of their degrees at Case Western Reserve University. Together, the duo and its staff provide an array of dental services, including cleanings, implants, teeth whitenings, and crown procedures.
For 30 years, Dr. Harper and Dr. Gilmore have worked to fix up the smiles of their patients at their University Heights family dental practice. They skillfully perform basic cleanings and exams, fillings, crowns, bridges, root canals, and implants.
The checklist for pre-surgery sanitation at Premier Dental is meticulously scrutinized all the way down to the operatory water. A high-tech filtration system courses water through two filters to remove chemicals and particulates before an ultraviolet light disintegrates any lingering bacteria. To match, the tools are scoured by a high-tech sterilization system that surpasses OSHA requirements.
This highly detailed process represents Premier Dental’s head dentist, self-proclaimed perfectionist Dr. Rita Kutsikovich. Earning diplomate status through the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, Dr. Kutsikovich has the credentials and continuing education to support her passion for dentistry. Her specialty services include dental implants, crowns, bridges, and sedation dentistry, which can help patients to feel less anxious about procedures and make teeth sit still. She also performs general exams, cleans teeth, and seals them.
When Dr. Naeemah Lewis looks at teeth, she sees the entire face. In her eyes, teeth are more than just appliances for chewing food. They are support structures that hold up the lower part of the face, contributing significantly to a person’s overall appearance. With this outside-in approach to orthodontia, Dr. Lewis is able to carefully consider facial aesthetics, shape, and balance before designing an orthodontic plan. This first step in designing an orthodontia plan is crucial because the results of orthodontic treatment, like the highest-quality haircuts, can last a lifetime.
Dr. Lewis outfits her warm purple-and-blue office with advanced orthodontic technology. Digital x-rays reveal the hidden positions of roots while reducing radiation, and fully digital displays looks out for the environment by eliminating the need for paper.
Dr. Michael Guirguis and his expert team of pearl polishers start each exam by inspecting inner-mouth mountain ranges for cavities and decay. Ivories then shake off all remnants of excess tartar and leftover tartare during a thorough cleaning. A full set of x-rays helps to identify any deep-seated cavities, structural issues, or third sets of teeth waiting in the wings. After completing the exam, patients receive a take-home Opalescence whitening kit to make their newly inspected smiles sparkle. Like an open-mouthed walk through a car wash, the kit supplies speedy dental illumination, its nutrient-rich bleaching gel overpowering stains and yellowing. A custom-fitted tray allows for chopper comfort during gel applications, which require up to two hours per session and about two weeks of total treatment time.
