Specializing in family, cosmetic, and orthodontic dental care, Bright Side's dozen dentists and seven hygienists treat the tusks of both mature mouths and nervous children alike. Each dentist begins by examining their patients' mouth for any obvious abnormalities, such as extra tongues and molar fires. Next, a series of x-rays delves deeper to expose any cavities, tumors, gum infections. Finally, a meticulous cleaning gives the heave-ho to any tartar and plaque buildup, clearing the way for future generations of inevitable meal remnants. After the last brush stroke is struck, you'll leave Bright Side Dental with a smile bright enough to melt hearts, including your own, so be careful around mirrors.
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. Rachel Woll treats teeth in a renovated home complete with a brick fireplace and leather-upholstered chairs. Continuing-education courses keep Dr. Woll and her staff up to date on noninvasive cosmetic-dentistry techniques and celebrity gossip. Established patients who make their cleaning appointment within 30 days of their due date receive one free syringe of whitening gel to help ensure pearly whites stay bright.
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.
Signature Smiles's two resident dentists, Dr. Jeffrey Solomon and Dr. Greg Young, perform an array of dental services that range from Invisalign to oral surgery. Dr. Young specializes in implant dentistry and surgical procedures, and Dr. Solomon is certified through the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation, which means he can calm patients' nerves just by winking in their general direction. Both dentists participate in continuing education to keep their skills up-to-date, and offer extended hours and Saturday appointments to accommodate busy patients.
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.
