With its cutting-edge amenities and diagnostic technologies, Trailridge Family Dental aims to make patients feel as comfortable as possible from the time they walk into the lobby to the time they schedule their next appointment. Each treatment room features a 26-inch television for visitors' convenience as Dr. Allan Stevenson and the practice's support staff deploy the most current procedures and methodologies to identify troublesome conditions and then correct them. Preventative care is the most effective way to stop the spread of decay or periodontal disease; however, the dentists also use every advantage at their disposal as they treat patients. Digital x-ray technology gives them a clearer, faster look at structural issues beneath the gum line and the office's CEREC technology can sculpt customized crowns during the same appointment. Whether visitors are seeking treatment for a painful condition or a cosmetic procedure to create a cleaner, brighter smile, Trailridge Family Dental strives to accommodate virtually every need.
Today’s Dentistry ensures the health of tomorrow's smiles with cleaning, adjustments, and cosmetic treatments for baby teeth through dentures. Drs. Klint Keller and Jason Hammer cater to the comfort of their patients through a variety of means, such as calming anxiety via sedation dentistry and relaxing massage chairs and coaxing shy mouths open with a ready supply of freshly baked cookies. Beyond general cleaning and upkeep services, the tooth pros restore order and shine to mouths with implants, snap-on dentures, and Invisalign braces, and offer same-day dentistry to accommodate oral emergencies, busy schedules, and cavity-ridden skydivers who just happen to drop in.
At Signature Dental, Dr. Matt Kooyman and his staff strive for utmost patient comfort during the full range of general, restorative, and cosmetic dental treatments. He uses soft-tissue lasers to recontour gum lines, reducing the bleeding and recovery time of metal blades, and Diagnodent lasers to reveal tooth decay, which, like a middle child’s birthday, can be easily overlooked.
In order to help minimize patient discomfort and set patients at ease, Dr. Kooyman’s quiet electric handpieces reduce much of the whir and buzz of air-driven dental equipment. A television and headphones in the operatory further block out ambient dental noises while the operatory’s massaging dental chair kneads out muscle kinks.
SmileLabs of Meridian specializes in the optimization of smiles using a sophisticated in-office whitening system. Technicians inaugurate sessions by having patients paint teeth with gel using an Applia-Brush, then hasten its stain-busting skills with activating beams from the FDA-approved Infinity Pro SL Whitening Accelerator. The virtually painless treatments can lighten grins up to eight shades, with results lasting for a year or more if patients practice proper maintenance and abstain from chewing on printer-ink cartridges.
Dr. F. Todd Wortham—or “Dr. T,” as his patients call him—is so well trained in implantology, he finds installing replacement teeth to be fun. The dentist, who has more than 500 hours of continuing education in advanced dental techniques under his belt, has learned to be one with his work to such a degree that even the challenging procedures have become a joy.
Together with longtime colleague Dr. Rachel M. Deininger, Dr. T takes time to get to know each patient who comes through the door or scratches through the drywall. In addition to installing dental implants, the doctors treat periodontal disease, whiten teeth with custom bleaching trays, and fit patients for dentures.
Before opening his private practice in Eagle, Dr. Jacob Brown served a tour of duty in the U.S. Army as a general dentist and Director of the Red Cross Dental Assistant Training Program. After completing his service, Dr. Brown settled in Idaho with his wife and five daughters and opened up Castlebury Dental. Working alongside experienced assistants, he keeps mouths healthy with intraoral cameras, electric handpieces, and digital x-rays that expose teeth to less radiation than traditional X-rays or traditional isotope-chewing contests. One of Dr. Brown's many specialties is his use of rotary endodontics, a procedure that allows him to perform root canals quicker than is possible through conventional methods.
