A massage chair gently relaxes muscles while patrons lean back on comfy pillows and enjoy scenes from an overhead TV. Lavish treatment rooms are just one of the ways Drs. Brigham D. Baker and Tye A. Thompson create a relaxing experience for their patients. Further alleviating patients? worries are the dentists? themselves, who both received their degree from the University of the Pacific?s school of dentistry. As a certified Invisalign and E4D same-day crowns provider, Dr. Baker uses his expertise to straighten smiles and restore patients? confidence more effectively than an hourly round of applause. Dr. Thompson surgically replaces missing teeth by placing dental implants, a skill he honed through a one-year program sponsored by the American Academy of Implant Dentistry. Whatever the service, both dentists use advanced technology such as intraoral cameras and digital x-rays to ensure oral health.
During the 28 years he's been practicing medicine and dentistry, Dr. Jerry Triolo has accrued experience in a wide range of procedures.

Though An Elegant Smile Dentistry's 16 dentists are spread across ten locations, they all share a common philosophy of dedicated preventive care. The team, whose members have been lavished with numerous Top Dentist awards from Phoenix Magazine, earns its accolades by determining the specific needs of each patient's mouth. With three modern, state-of-the-art East Valley locations, they also share a mutual philosophy of providing gentle and affordable care they hope will inspire patients to make An Elegant Smile Dentistry their dental home for years to come. Although routine cleanings represent the bread and fluoridated butter of their approach, they also mend smiles with cosmetic and orthodontic services designed to keep aesthetics in line with good oral health.
Dr. Andrew Shumway and his team of eight—one for each incisor in a senator’s smile—go to great lengths in their roles as crushers of cavities and enemies of enamel erosion. A new-patient exam ($75) lets Shumway Dental Care shake hands with patients’ teeth and get a feel for the terrain. A full-mouth x-ray ($110) will uncover the deep, dark, childhood secrets lurking within the hearts of premolars, while a routine cleaning ($82) will undo the damage done by years of gnawing on Gramps’ homemade “chewin’ tobacky” and washing it down with his patented “bathtub Pepsi.”
Planet Beach is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all services. Weary muscles can luxuriate in the completely dry hydro-massage bed as jets of water focus on pressure points along the spine and quietly sing sea chanteys to muscle knots until they succumb to the siren song of relaxation. The FDA-approved Luminous facial combines light therapy with topical spa products to tighten and clear skin, and oxygen therapy teams with aromatherapy to stimulate the body and calm the mind. Today's deal can also include a series of UV-free Mystic Spray tans, the airbrush application of which leads to a streak-free gold tone that attracts the eye of the swimmers and grizzled prospectors who populate the beach. The teeth-whitening treatment uses peroxide and premium-grade LED light to help lift tooth stains during 15-minute sessions.
