Dr. Lee Shainbrown, DDS, of Applegate Dental finds that empathy is paramount in helping people to smile comfortably and confidently, stating: "Treating people the way that I would want to be treated plays a very important role in my job." Together with Dr. Jeannette Woods, DDS, the compassionate doctor strives to put patients at ease during preventive-care visits or cosmetic procedures such as bonding and veneers. Dr. Shainbrown participates in multiple educational seminars every year to stay current on dentistry innovations, including laser tissue management and low-radiation digital x-rays that reveal cavities and how old teeth are according to their rings. In keeping with his patient-centered philosophy, Dr. Shainbrown is available for emergency treatments via an around-the-clock answering service.
At Burke Dental Group, soft lighting illuminates the waiting room, helping to calm both regular and first-time patients. Committed to comprehensive dental care, the team works hard to administer services that include basic cleaning, exams, and oral surgery. The dentists also advise patients about proper preventative care and can straighten out chompers that have lost their way with orthodontics or perform emergency dental services.
For more than three decades, Dr. Gordon Kent of The Smile Center has been honing proficiencies in diverse facets of general, surgical, and cosmetic dentistry. His broad training and on-site laboratory allow him to oversee surgical and orthodontic procedures that would ordinarily require the services of several doctors, a locksmith, and a magician. In his lab, Dr. Kent is able to control the quality of the dentures, metal castings, and ceramic veneers he crafts.
Equipped with the latest grin-enriching technologies, Dr. Michael Moore aligns, whitens, and reconstructs uneven smiles in his domain of dentistry. For those who have never been to the practice, or were unaware that they had teeth, new-patient exams offer a starting point to improve their dental hygiene. Dr. Moore gives first timers a topical exam, thoroughly cleans each chomper, screens the mouth for oral cancer, and takes x-rays to find hidden cavities. The whitening package fits tanned teeth for customized whitening trays, which patients then fill with a gel solution and wear at home for a few hours a day. Within 10 days, enamel becomes clearer, brighter, and more effective at camouflaging oral polar bears.
Dr. Stewart Fenigstein has worn the title of “dentist” for nearly three decades. Over the years, his practice has adapted to new techniques and technology such as Zoom teeth whitening and Invisalign, but has always remained dedicated to providing clients with a caring environment. The first time Dr. Fenigstein meets patients, he takes time to lay down the foundation for a long-term relationship. He listens to their concerns, medical history, and perhaps a haiku or two they’ve composed about the office waiting room. Then, he becomes familiar with the patient’s mouth by scrutinizing teeth with his own eyes as well as with panoramic and bitewing x-rays.
As the official dentist of the ever-cheerful Buffalo Jills, Dr. Douglas Hamill, DDS, knows a thing or two about smiles. He calls upon years of teaching and professional dental experience to assist his team during both routine visits and more intensive treatments.
