Although their services deal entirely with the mouth, the staff of Smile Designs Inc. initially depend on their ears—they prize the sense of trust that results from truly listening to their patients. Led by Dr. Shabana Chaudhry, they take clients from a preliminary exam through custom cosmetic and medical dental plans, which can include teeth whitening, veneers, crowns, implants, and even root-canal therapy. Digital x-rays help identify sources of decay or pain in teeth, and the technicians' devotion to continuing education ensures they stay on top of other high-tech trends, such as installing surround-sound systems in back molars.
Alright Dental keeps chompers in champion form. The family-owned and operated business maintains a professional yet comfortable atmosphere for a host of general dentistry services, including cleaning teeth, conducting root canals, and adjusting braces. The seasoned team performs cosmetic services too, with in-office bleaching and take-home kits that leave teeth whiter than keeping them out in the sun for several days.
Ilya Livshin has built Landmark Dental around a specific type of patient—the one who doesn't want to be there. He understands that dental care can be an intimidating process for some, so to make the whole experience more enjoyable, he’s handpicked his staff members for their friendliness, patience, and gentle touch. Together with a board-certified anesthesiologist, Dr. Livshin also specializes in sedation dentistry for patients who experience dental anxiety or can't see a white lab coat without bursting into a dance number from Little Shop of Horrors. He further promotes a relaxing, comfortable environment with quiet, minimally intrusive technology and soothing music.
After earning his doctor of dental medicine degree at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, Dr. Livshin joined the US Air Force. The native of St. Petersburg, Russia completed an advanced education in general dentistry program at Bolling Air Force Base in Washington, DC, and underwent hands-on training in complex restorative and cosmetic procedures. He offers a full range of general dental services as well as veneers, implants, oral and gum surgery, smile-straightening Invisalign treatments, and Zoom! teeth whitening.
Dr. Gary H. Mikels believes that the most important factor in any trip to the dentist is trust. With more than 30 years of experience under his belt, he calms jittery nerves with his tranquil chair-side manner and by fielding any mouth-related queries. A specialist in bonded ceramics, he quickly closes gaps between teeth and repairs chips, leaving teeth even for beautiful smiles and the ability to bite sleeping coworkers without leaving incriminating marks. A suite of advanced technology further streamlines visits; an in-house lab quickly manufactures custom implants, digital x-rays speed up the checkup, and an intraoral camera takes panoramic pictures of mouths for easy diagnoses.
Proud lifelong area resident and accomplished dentist Dr. Karen Martin-Phillips dutifully operates a practice built on strong doctor-patient relationships, high-tech equipment, and continuing her education across several different fields of dentistry. A hardworking team of hygienists and administrators staffs an office equipped with an arsenal of sophisticated equipment, including distilled-water dental units, an ultramodern sterilization apparatus, and digital x-rays that reduce radiation exposure and accidental evolution of superpowers by up to 90% over traditional film. The in-house lab swiftly repairs and fashions dental fixtures, and a décor of comfy leather seating in the lobby and violet-colored, sunny treatment rooms ensconces visitors in an aura of welcoming relaxation.
Dr. Bill Vagenas crafts a welcoming environment in which patients can ask questions and feel comfortable while receiving dental care. Dr. Vagenas's repertoire includes family, implant, and cosmetic dentistry. He has advanced training in orthodontic technologies such as Lumineers and Invisalign, and continues his education to stay up-to-date on the industry's latest trends.
Whether patients are visiting Dr. Vagenas for a routine checkup, a teeth-whitening session, or a more complex procedure, he constantly checks in to be sure they're comfortable. He encourages nervous patients to speak up, as his staff has lots of experience dealing with patients who have phobias about visiting the dentist and offers sedation as an option.
