Like a basketball player after a game-winning shot, successful patients at RM Orthodontics & Family Dentistry get treated to congratulatory high-fives all around. But instead of sinking a difficult free throw, these patients have simply managed to keep appointments, brush regularly, and take care of their teeth. This celebratory atmosphere is what orthodontist Dr. Rachael Maidens and her staff encourage through regular contests for patients and jersey day for staff members.
Dr. Rachael Maidens adheres to the Six Elements orthodontic philosophy, which outlines optimal treatment goals and methods to create harmony in the mouth's appearance, function, health, and rhythm while chewing gum. In the modern office, a central skylight casts natural sunlight over patients gazing out the windows along the perimeter of the treatment room. Sage-green walls, stone embellishments, and dark hardwood floors give the office natural accents, and wireless Internet gives waiting parents or adult patients an opportunity to email or guess the passwords to their coworkers' email as they wait.
Under the guidance of Dr. Jeanne Taylor, DMD, Brentwood Dental Pediatrics' toothy technicians ensure overall health in youthful mouth caves with comprehensive care. Parents guide pensive patients into Brentwood Dental Pediatrics' purple-bathed waiting area, where they shed anxiety with a variety of video games, toys, and positive economic reports. Once acclimated, kids meet Dr. Jeanne, who examines their burgeoning chompers and surrounding tissue before peering below the gum line with an x-ray. A thorough cleaning and polishing imbues pearly whites with the brilliance of Einstein's sequined tuxedo before a cloak of fluoride surrounds mouth studs to protect them from softening.
The experienced staff at Studio Smile of Nashville re-bedazzles dreary chompers with the speedy Zoom! whitening system. A whitening gel is applied to the mouth's natural knives that, when activated by a special light, removes stains, dingy coloring, and the remnants of failed tie-dye experiments. Done in three 15-minute sessions over a single visit, the procedure works toward creating a whiter set of tongue guards, perfect for blending in with packs of polar bears wearing lab coats. A set of take-home touchup trays deters molars from rebelling by making out with bad-boy magic markers.
Helmed by Dr. Steven H. Rezba, Coolsprings Cosmetic Dentistry cares for smiles with an expansive menu of cosmetic and general dentistry services. The staff’s corrective procedures can address a variety of dental issues, ranging from veneers and bonding to crowns, implants, and ClearCorrect invisible braces. Dr. Rezba also performs root canals and extractions, allowing clients to rid themselves of an aching tooth and find the diamond hiding underneath it. No matter what the need, the practice aims to welcome every visitor with a calm and friendly atmosphere.
Pediatric dentist Dr. Edward Perdue helms the Healthy Teeth 4 Kids practice, which specializes in caring for, and communicating with, tiny teeth. Colorful artwork and video games highlight an office specially designed for pintsize patients, and kid-size exam chairs come equipped with personal TV sets to ensure their charges don't miss their favorite cartoons or midday soap operas. As kids soak up the surrounding stimuli, Dr. Perdue swoops in and fortifies their teeth against future decay with thorough cleanings and fluoride treatments.
Bellevue Family and Cosmetic Dentistry employs two dentists to ensure that every emergency situation is covered, even if it occurs after traditional business hours, on weekends, or on Leap Day. The practice also accepts same-day appointments. In addition to regular checkups, the duo performs root canals, applies veneers to chipped teeth, and whitens chompers. The team also offers complimentary nitrous oxide for patients who experience anxiety during visits.
