Dr. Andrew Hall's love of tending to teeth has led him across the country and the globe. After returning from a deployment in Iraq, where he provided dental services for nearly 2,500 soldiers and civilians, he set out again, this time for training at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies, which specializes in neuromuscular and cosmetic dentistry. Today, he couples his advanced experience with advanced dental technology such as Cerec 3-D imaging, which helps him to create precise-fitting crowns in around an hour and negates the need to implant temporary crowns or tiny, tooth-colored construction cones. His office also caters to nervous patients with the use of NuCalm, a natural relaxation aid that joins forces with soothing music to bring bodies to a presleep-like state of calm.
Rangewood Dental's owner and presiding dentist, Dr. Gary Hickenlooper, who has been practicing dentistry since 1982, fortifies cavitated chompers with natural or gold fillings, performs routine cleanings, or hides damaged teeth behind porcelain veneers. To ensure dental well-being, Dr. Hickenlooper includes oral-cancer screenings in every examination he performs and keeps his keen eyes trained skyward for the tooth signal, in the event of a late-night emergency.
Julia Arnold, DDS, of Interquest Dental Group has been caring for cuspids and mending molars in the United States and internationally for more than 20 years. She and her staff of hygienists practice general and cosmetic dentistry by mixing modern equipment and procedures with ancient floss-and-brush feng shui. The dental exam consists of a thorough visual examination, full x-rays, and any necessary diagnostic impressions. By scrutinizing x-ray images, dental gurus identify conditions that might later harm teeth if left alone, and the teeth-cleaning session evicts plaque and helps prevents disease. With custom-fit take-home whitening trays, patients improve both their smile’s luminosity and their ability to be spotted while stranded on a desert island.
Partnership for Excellence's dynamic twosome of David M. Johnson, D.D.S. and Branon D. Johnson, D.D.S. apply 40 years of combined dental experience and state of the art technology to vanquish teeth-deteriorating plaque and supply a polished shine to glimmering mouth-diamonds. During an examination ($83 value) and cleaning ($87 value), a professional tooth technician will do a head count to make sure all teeth are present before a power-washing that blasts away leftover residue from last week's bout of geophagy-induced clay eating. A powerful x-ray ($133 value) should reveal any signs of decay, bone abnormality, or the existence of thought-thieving tooth trolls. Whatever your oral arcade calls for, the dentists at Partnership for Excellence have the necessary tokens.
Dr. Fred Guerra's commitment to offering patients "a caring, gentle touch" grows out of a lifelong dedication to serving others. Dr. Guerra joined the Air Force after graduating from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in 1976; his military career culminated in a post as the director of dental services at the United States Air Force Academy. Today, he gives back to the community by supporting organizations that help victims of domestic violence and conducting annual volunteer efforts on behalf of the Give Kids a Smile program, which provides underserved children with free dental care.
Dr. Guerra's patient-centered, compassionate approach to dentistry is also reflected in the office's many amenities, including pillows and blankets, iPods and flat-screen TVs, and soothing music. To further promote guests' comfort, he uses the latest technological advancements. He is one of the few dentists in the country to use a powerful surgical microscope during root canals and other services that require increased visibility. Dr. Guerra is also an avid golfer and fitness enthusiast, which enhances his ability to custom-fit Under Armour mouth guards for athletes in contact sports or technicians who repair batting-cage pitching machines.
