While others grow up wanting to be astronauts and firefighters, Dr. Winter dreamed of the dental arts. After he graduated summa cum laude from Eastern Michigan University, Winter encountered a strong gust of wind that filled his graduation gown and carried him just a few miles down the road to the prestigious University of Michigan dental school, where he continued his studies.
Dental technology has advanced quite a bit in the more than 25 years since Dr. Winter began practicing, but he and his staff at Progressive Dental Professionals pride themselves on staying abreast of the changes. Among the many services and amenities they offer today are realistic Lumineers, single-visit teeth-whitening treatments, and flat-screen TVs.
Dr. Timothy Kosinski of SmileCreator has placed over 7,000 dental implants throughout his career. When he isn't crafting dentures, treating gums, or replacing fangs with tusks, he works as an adjunct assistant professor at a university. Because of his achievements in his field, he won the Lifelong Learning and Service Recognition award from the Academy of General Dentistry in 2009. In addition to contributing to two textbooks, he has published more than 80 articles on implant dentistry and has written an unpublished collection of dental-themed haikus. Although Dr. Kosinski offers more routine preventive care, he mostly performs full-mouth reconstruction and cosmetic dentistry, and so, in order to help patients relax during these services, he can use both intravenous and oral sedation. Treatment rooms help patients unwind without sedation with TVs, individual headphones, DVDs, and computer equipment.
Inside this state-of-the-art dental center, Drs. John and Gianni S. DeCarolis combine their expertise to administer cleanings, cosmetic dentistry, and dental treatments for the entire family. The up-to-date office swells with elegance, from the wall-size windows overlooking a verdant lawn to the French-style double doors leading into the reception area. But it’s the advanced technology housed beyond those doors that really makes the studio swell with sophistication. Digital x-rays and intraoral cameras provide a rare look at each tooth’s internal health and the uvula’s collection of swallowed gum, while Zoom whitening procedures help take years off a smile with help from a light-activated gel.
Keeping teeth and gums healthy may be Dr. Kaz’s main prerogative, but that doesn’t mean he lets aesthetics fall to the wayside. In fact, the lead doctor of Kaz Advanced Dentistry takes cosmetic dentistry a few steps further than your average dentist. In addition to Zoom! teeth whitening, at-home bleaching, veneers, and Invisalign, Dr. Kaz offers Botox and Radiesse to combat wrinkles and fine lines around the face.
Utilizing the latest, computerized tooth-centric technology, the smiling staff at Hi Tech Family Dentistry glamorizes mouths under the direction of Dr. Mark Morin. Less-than-beaming bicuspids are brightened with Zoom! teeth whitening, an in-office procedure that utilizes a light-activated proprietary gel to break up stains, discoloration, and graffiti on faded mouth ivory. After protectively covering the lips and gums, leaving only the dingy dentiles exposed, the technician applies the whitening gel to the soon-to-be pearlier mouth pearls, setting it to work under the Zoom! light over the course of three 15-minute sessions––allowing the patient plenty of time to relax and daydream about ways to use the power of their mouth-based brilliance for good instead of evil.
Generations Family Dental Care is a community-focused facility with a caring staff that is dedicated and passionate about preventive health and treatment of any dental issues. Some dental emergencies are sudden?a tooth knocked out or a debilitating ache. But most extreme dental problems are slow developing; it's these disasters that Dr. Kimberly A. Orr and the staff at Generations Family Dental Care seek to prevent, focusing on preventive dental care for all their guests. Their thorough exams check over every nook and cranny, searching for plaque buildup, tooth decay, and signs of oral cancer. A Velscope machine provides extra problem-finding power, using blue light to illuminate disease. Cleanings leave most mouths sparkling fresh, and dozens of advanced procedures fix everything from missing teeth to gum disease.
