At Bayside Dental, Dr. Randall Medefesser’s broad selection of services doesn’t prevent him from having a few specialties. In addition to practicing general dentistry, he performs cosmetic treatments such as teeth whitening. He also caters to athletes with sports dentistry, creating custom mouth guards and tending to patients who have recently been elbowed by NBA legend Bill Walton.
In her spare time, she photographs and bakes, but by day, Dr. Birim Boyer turns her aesthetic sense and exacting eye to the art and science of dentistry. Her combination of family, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry keeps grins gleaming with services that include preventive care, veneers, and orthodontia. Over the years, Dr. Boyer has not only sharpened her technical skill but her chair-side manner, easing patients’ minds with her warm demeanor, delicate touch, and hand-monogrammed security blankets.
Invisalign straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial one-hour exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies for each customer (it can run anywhere from $2,000 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 toward that final cost. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
Dr. Veena Vamadev isn't content with treating just her current patients. As an endodontist in India, she helped train the next generation of dentists by teaching at the university level. After immigrating to the United States, she earned her doctorate and now keeps patients’ teeth in tip-top shape at Camino Family Dentistry. She performs regular checkups, covers cracked or tattooed teeth with veneers, and uses her endodontic expertise to repair damaged teeth using root canals.

At Sunnysmile Dental, Dr. Nguyen flexes his skills alongside his team, where they makes treatments such as root canals and laser teeth whitening as comfortable as possible.
