Dr. Ted Steliotes and his friendly staff assuage dental anxiety with general and cosmetic dentistry performed in a luxurious spa. Lit by brilliant chandeliers, a soothing fountain quietly laps as patients sink into plush, marshmallow-lined chairs in Steliotes Dental Spa's relaxing waiting room. During the comprehensive dental exam, tooth technicians investigate oral interiors, gently poking with sanitized instruments to detect dental distress and to tickle laughing devices. A full series of intraoral x-rays helps pinpoint problems lurking beneath the smile's surface, uncovering cavities and screening for signs of oral cancer. A hand massage pampers tired paws during the thorough cleaning, as Dr. Steliotes and his team floss between teeth and scrub and rinse enamel to purge popcorn kernels, plaque, tartar, and residual orange peels from childhood soccer-game halftimes. Steliotes Dental Spa's mouth menders also consult patients on the spa's Botox and Invisalign treatments for no additional charge and welcome each visitor to soak up the indulgent ambience while sipping a beverage from the coffee and juice bar.
A graduate of Pittsburgh University's School of Dental Medicine with more than 30 years of experience, Southside Dental Pavilion's Ron DiCarlo, DMD, calls upon his knowledge and know-how to care for teeth, whether during routine cleanings or larger-scale oral surgeries. To keep up his reputation among prospective patients and marauding tooth fairies, he maintains a membership with Right Dental Group, an alliance of highly educated, certified, customer-centric dentists. His homey office dwells in a brick building marked with a whimsical tooth-shaped sign.
With so many recent advancements in the field of dentistry, there's no longer a compelling reason to avoid the dentist. This is especially true if your local office is The Dentistry, where dental professionals offer patients a range of general or restorative services. Before performing services, the team determines whether a sedation option might be necessary by administering a brief anxiety test, in order to ensure that patients stay comfortable during treatment.
Dr. Parker, a fellow of the World Congress of Microdentistry with more than 30 years of experience, grants confidence to smiles with a Sapphire whitening treatment designed to lighten fangs up to 10 shades over the course of one office visit. During the procedure, which lasts up to 90 minutes, a seasoned technician lacquers choppers with a peroxide-based Sapphire gel that gently melts away stains caused by coffee, tobacco use, and permanent-marker-chewing habits. If necessary, they'll shine the beams of a Sapphire light on slathered tusks to enhance the gel's whitening power. This gentle procedure, unlike incisor tanning beds, does not rely on any harmful UV rays, yielding results that may last for up to a few years when followed up with proper oral care.
