Dr. Michael Caparas and his associates at each of the seven Metroplex Dental Care locations perform services using advanced technology, such as digital x-rays that release up to 90% less radiation and intraoral cameras. The doctors recommend a "sensible oral-health regimen," which includes regular dental exams, cleanings, and oral-cancer screenings. They help to repair existing maladies with restorative procedures such as root-canal therapy, and makeover smiles with veneers and whitening treatments. For sound sleep, the doctors fit apnea appliances and snore guards, ensuring that patients will no longer wake family members or lure a herd of migrating kazoos into the bedroom. Whatever the service, the doctors put patients at ease with their soothing chairside manner and variety of sedation options.
At Hebron Orthodontics, Vincent To, DDS and his staff focus on two things: offering the most comfortable and efficient orthodontic treatments available and creating a lighthearted, welcoming atmosphere. To that end, Dr. To—who has earned the esteemed title of diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics—straightens smiles with the self-ligating brackets of the Damon system, which allow for greater freedom of movement, less discomfort, and faster results than traditional methods or willing teeth to align. He places Incognito braces discreetly behind the teeth, or gradually straightens smiles with clear Invisalign trays. Dr. To can also recommend surgical options for more complex jaw issues. On the lighthearted end of the spectrum, on Fun Day Mondays, the crew dresses up in crazy socks or attire touting their favorite sports teams. Guests can watch television in the treatment area and ring the office's resident gong to celebrate getting their braces off and finally being able to whistle the Flight of the Bumblebee. The dedicated team even throws an annual patient-appreciation pool party complete with ice cream, favors, and giveaways.
Hebron Smiles' Dr. Adnan Saleem teaches his patients that regular dental care is important not only for maintaining oral health, but also for maintaining overall physical health. He lays a foundation for healthy mouths, and thus healthy bodies, through regular cleanings and exams that oust tartar, plaque, and oral cancer. He relies on digital x-rays, intraoral cameras, and digital imaging and charting technology to suss out these problems and find any candy the tongue has squirreled away behind the molars.
When neglected teeth develop problems such as cavities or dullness, Dr. Saleem renovates them with tooth-colored fillings and whitening treatments. Hebron Smiles gives patients additional access to the doctor via extended office hours and Saturday appointments.

While in high school, Dr. Yoon Chang watched as his sister's teeth transformed from crooked to perfectly straight with the help of orthodontics. But as her teeth started to look better, it was her soaring confidence level that really connected with him. That experience led him to become an orthodontist and to help others experience the same life change. Now at the helm of his own practice, Dr. Chang gives his patients several teeth-straightening options, from traditional metal braces to clear Invisalign aligners for all ages.
